    Well done with quitting for over a month. Interacting with drunk people when sober is a skill you learn after some exposure. This includes talking to drunk women when sober. Interacting with them is just a version of game that you get good at after a while. Not all drinking environments are full of morons. I find that many people, probably most, are quite normal when drunk, even at 2am.
    Acting weird at people who dont drink is just a reflexive custom. In reality they dont care. You can just laugh it off and not dwell on it and they will relax. Just dont lecture them about them being alcoholics or having problems that they are covering up.
    Some women, I suspect most of them, secretly like men who dont drink. They are both disturbed by and attracted to them. I’m not sure why. Maybe it intrigues them.
    Consider talking to drunk girls when sober as a social skill/game skill that you need to improve.
