So very wrong


Went to dinner with my best friend (also former drinking partner) tonight. Fearing our friendship would be strained by lack of alcohol I have actually been avoiding her in many ways since finding sobriety mid January.

I am so happy to say I had nothing to worry about. We talked about my choice to quit and she was incredibly supportive. It was very cleansing and enjoyable. We laughed, we cried, we reassured one another and rejoiced in our true and very honest friendship.

I am so very thankful for the courage and support I receive from all you wonderful people. This journey is so rewarding in so many ways. Grateful is too small a word to describe my appreciation. Always, all ways.....T

Nice work I also found some stronger connections with friends to make up for the ones that I had to let go (well, the drinking buddies I used to think were friends ;-)

Keep up the great work

I am so happy for you NBC.
You are lucky to have such a good friend. Cherish her and keep her close as things change in both of your lives.
