I also have this problem. I think I may be allergic to alcohol or have trouble metabolizing it. Having a couple of drinks with friends is a rare opportunity for me to relax and not be self-conscious of what people think of every move I make and every word I say. I need to let go of that anxiety at least once in a while. I just don’t drink at all now and have no alcohol in my home. You may need to find new friends and a new lifestyle with people who are exercise or health fanatics and also don’t drink. I’m still working on it and don’t know the answers. I’d like to hear from other people with this problem, too.
