I can play pool sober!

I play pool for teams a couple of times a week. I regularly get asked how many pints it takes before I relax and play my best pool. I usually say 2 or 3, but usually end up having at least 4 before I play.

I've decided to give up drinking and have been sober 7 days. Last night was the first time I've played pool without a drink in my hand for a long time. It's strange to be able to see the balls on the table, and see everyone around the table clearly. I played really well so I know it's a delusion when people say that they can't play pool or darts without a drink. Drinkers tell so many lies.....

Looking forwards to the coming months and years of sobriety. Good luck all.

Truer words were never spoken.

This thread title grabbed me right away, cause it's happy!

I like that you're straight away finding out that you can have fun without being drunk. Many have a tougher time with that.
