Dave, I am in pretty much the same situation as you as far as the drinking goes. I have been an occasional bedwetter basically since I was about 12 (I wet every night before then), and I will almost always wet at night if I have more than 1 or 2 drinks. I think you're basically right; you will just have to weigh the consequences of what you decide to do. My solution is usually to limit myself to 1 glass of beer if there's any likelihood I'll be staying with friends that night. If it helps you, though, I have told a few of my close friends about my problem and they have all been totally cool and understanding about it. (One thing I sometimes do is find a way to mention the fact that I used to wet as a kid, and then judging from how they react to that I can tell how "safe" it will be to tell them it still happens occasionally.) Above all, don't let it stress you out too much -- you can have a good time with your friends whether or not you drink 4 or 5 beers! Best of luck.
