Like Neomarxist said above: Stick to sobriety like glue. I found it helped to try to change my default thinking pattern from "drinking is normal" to "sobriety is normal", so that drinking seemed odd to me instead of the other way around. It's good you've come to the realization that YOU cannot ever drink again. It doesn't matter what other people do, since they are not you. That's called taking responsibility for your own life and is a crucial step in the recovery process. You can only put the blame squarely on yourself if you want to make it out of this nightmare. Congratulations and good luck. I tried to quit last year around this time and lasted only a month or two at a time before I woke up in the hospital for the final time. Now I have almost 300 days without alcohol. You can do it!
