Walking into the weekend smiling and sober! Two things I never thought would go together on a weekend. I was so brainwashed by society thinking that the only way to have fun and be happy was with alcohol. Advertisements and social media make it so glamorous that is what we all begin to believe. One of the hardest thing for me at the beginning of recovery was the thought that I was going to live this miserably boring life if I never drank alcohol again. I will never forget being told early on in recovery “if sobriety was terrible and boring then none of us would be sober.” Enough said. So believe me when I say you do not need alcohol to have fun or be happy. Have a fabulous and safe sober Friday night my friends!!!
