Thats what gets me to drink every time.

Buy you drinks and guilt trip you to not "waste it" even though you insisted otherwise...or guilt trip you for not "celebrating" with them despite them not having a good reason.... i think it is because misery loves company and it makes them feel bad if everyone is not doing it.

but man they make it so hard! so called "friends" lol
This is no LOL matter. If you have "friends" who pressure you or guilt you with alcohol, they're not true friends.

If you can't go out with them and not drink, that's on you, and only you. Tell them to support you, tell them to shut up, tell them you'll be the DD or just don't go out with them. In all of those scenarios, you are making the choice.
