Please, tell me if the following sentence is ok:
I usually donīt eat meat, unless I donīt have any other choice.
I know unless makes the clause negative so it is actually a double negative... but when I replace unless with except if, it doesnīt seem to make sense if it is unless I have any other choice.
Or shouldnīt we use unless in a sentence like this at all and rather replace it with some other expresion?
Thanks a lot
Both "... unless I don't have any other choice" and "... unless I have no other choice" are fine.
