my first night out :-)

So last night I went to dinner with my new friends �� I drank lemon lime bitters and water while every1 drank booze.then I drove everyone to the city and we danced till 2am. I.danced.sober. Lol!!! I had such a great time, no stress, no worries, no panic and dread this morning and when ppl asked me I just said , I don't drink.and that was that.actually felt liberated and proud. Just a temporary buzz I know, but I've been so down, I'll take it!!!! �� P.s booze breath is really gross ��

Congratulations. I very much like the simple responses when offered a drink, NO thank you usually covers it. For many years if I find myself fantasizing about what a drink might taste like I stop and start thinking about non drinking thoughts. BE WELL

Oh God,I remember this! It's so funny how so many of us are alike, yet we all felt unique. I remember specifically trying not to eat until later, or eating very little, because I didn't want it to ruin the buzz.

How stupid was that? Now, like you, I can concentrate on making great meals, or going out and eating great meal, and actually enjoying them.

Congrats on your night out! I haven't had one yet, but, I'm sure I will. I hope I can do as well as you did!

Well done. I found it was a relief going out and not having to worry about how much I would drink. I was out with a group of friends recently (normal drinkers) and they constantly debated whether to have another drink and then got tired after a few pints while I was still full of energy. Being sober is much more fun x

YAY! I'm so glad the night went well. Keep it up. I have a sober friend who likes to say, "I've had enough." :P haha.

Just curious, what are lemon lime bitters?

Lol....yes, booze breath is nasty! I was out with my cousin and she was having a few beers and I was drinking tonic. As we were talking, I kept thinking....ugh this is what I smelled like. Mind you, she wasn't even buzzed!!!!! Last time I noticed that was when I was pregnant and not drinking....7 years ago!

Great job staying the course....be proud!
