What to drink at the bar?

Hi everyone! I'm on day 2 of the program and so far so good! I've been eating mostly paleo for the past month or two, so the committment is strong. The weekend is approaching, though, and I'm going to be at various parties where other people will be drinking beer and cocktails. My drink of choice is usually vodka or gin and soda, and frankly, I'm awkward in social situations so I like a drink or two just to loosen up! Having a glass in my hand is pretty much a crutch to calm my nerves, so I'm wondering what to order at the bar that's more fun than water?

How is club soda ok? Doesn't it have bad chemicals in it? /:

Not really. Here's the explaination from Wikipedia: Commercial soda water in siphons is made by chilling filtered plain water to 8 °C (46 °F) or below, optionally adding a sodium or potassium based alkaline compound such as sodium bicarbonate to reduce acidity, and then pressurizing the water with carbon dioxide.

Personally, I'll do pellegrino or some naturally sparkling mineral water over club soda, but club soda is ok if they don't have that option.

Not drinking booze has been one of the harder parts for me. I have a high stress job that, industry wide, practically comes with a shot and a beer. The only way for me to go out and not feel uncomfortable or be super tempted is to go out where I never have before.

If you're used to drinking at "joe's bar and grill" just go somewhere else. My logic was "Im not used to having a beer here so why would I"

Hope this helps
