How can I get my boyfriend to accept I don't want to drink alcohol?

Anonymous
I've stopped drinking because I've learned how many calories are in alcohol. Besides, I'd rather eat a piece of cake than drink but my boyfriend is the opposite. He likes to go out to eat once a week and let loose by having a few drinks. Every time we go, I tell him I won't drink and he gets upset and it turns into a fight so I end up giving in. He says its no fun if he's the only one drinking, that I look great and its just a few drinks, and that if I don't drink he'd rather hang out with his friends and drink with them.

How can I convince him that I don't need to drink with him to have a good time?
