Drinking Buddies

I am sitting outside with two of my friends both of whom are drinking beers. I have no desire to drink, smoke maybe, but not drink. That's a flipping amazing to me.

It helps that they are acting like dumb asses:) I am grateful for them. They remind me of how it use to be.

  1. Sometimes it does help to see how others act when they are drinking. It reminds me of how much happier I am without the alcohol.

  2. I agree....most of my closest friends are normal drinkers and I have maintained my relationships with all of them - I just had to remind myself that "I" am the one with a problem, not "them", and that has helped me keep these friendships. And I look at all the advantages of not drinking when with all of them....I usually take 1st or 2nd in poker games now that I play sober (and that means winning $$$$), I don't say or do anything that I'll regret the next day and I don't wake up the next day with a hangover....all definite pluses in my book :)
