How to handle peer pressure when drinking?
Hermit on sabbatical
Your friend is an *** hole. You need more mature friends. My group of friends makes sure that none of us over drink because we care about each other. Drinking alcohol can be very dangerous. I suggest not drinking with people like that that try to push you too far. You can die from alcohol poisoning.
I don't really consider him a friend of yours, what he is doing could seriously hurt your health or worse. He is also controlling and manipulative, is that the type of friend you want?

You could grow a pair and learn to say "so what?" or "that is because you're such a fat bastard."
Are you sure you want to be friends with a guy like this? Someone who pressures you to do something you have said you don't want to do, and who mocks you because you don't choose to drink as much as he does, is not really a friend in my opinion. If you really like this guy, for reasons that aren't clear, then sit down with him when you guys are not drinking, and tell him you just aren't going to drink with him at all any more because it doesn't work out well for you. Tell him you'll be happy to get together if there's no booze involved. If the peers you spend time with don't work for you any more, go find some different peers.
