Things only Sober People recognise

15 Dec

Today I’m wiped from too much sober socialising. I’ve absolutely powered through the December madness so far, but I’ve learnt a big lesson- 3 parties in one week is just TOO MUCH.

I feel a bit shitty and down, but this video made me giggle. Hurrah for being the sober one, as knackering as it is.

5 weeks sober today 🙂

    OMG I so agree with you! Just doing 1 a week was hard. I had one Friday I hosted and yesterday I was exhausted. That is the 2nd time after an event this month the next day I was exhausted. I had to nap and was useless. I didn’t realize it was the mental part. Last night we had another party and bf said let’s bail, I was so grateful. I am so happy your doing so well. The video was cute and so true.. Hugs, MB

      This will be my first time. If I even go to any parties. My sister has been sober for 20 years and she often said how boring it gets with everyone drinking. Years ago I went to a clean and sober dance in Toronto the night of the big Blue Jays win of the series. It was bizarre but really interesting. My friend also in sobriety took me there. I spent the night watching the tv (I was following it that year) then walking among the thousands of revellers downtown. Sober. Quite a nice experience.

        9 times out of 10 it’s fine- in the wrong state of mind it can be a challenge, but getting drunk just masks the true problem of being tired/lonely etc!

      Thanks MB! We’ll be firing on all cylinders in the new year when this has all calmed down though!

    Haha this video is great! I have just decided not to go to parties any more. It’s no loss to me as I much prefer one to one time and small groups. I only went to parties because that’s what normal people do, then got smashed out of my gourd as fast as possible because I never felt normal or comfortable. I don’t have to conform any more, it’s ok for me to stay home and have a lunchtime coffee date with different people every day! I love it!
