what's the point of all this time
and effort, if you aren't having fun?
we've already seen and heard the
doom & gloom of addiction; there
comes a time to experience the joy
and freedom of clean living.
the concept of sober fun was foreign
to me at first.
how can i possibly have a good time
at parties, sporting events, or after
work, without drinking?
it certainly didn't happen overnight.
it's taken some time to be comfortable
around friends without a buzz.
now i enjoy the company of a mix
of sober and social drinkers.
there is a place for sober events,
especially early on, but most of
the world is not in recovery.
i can now really feel relaxed
interacting with folks who can
drink safely, yet respect my
decision to abstain.
