So yesterday I went to my best friends house for his birthday BBQ and had a phenomenal time, and the best part is I didn't drink a drop of alcohol. Just about everyone there was drinking and getting drunk, yet I felt no temptation. I always thought there was no way I could have a good time at a function like this without drinking, but in this case I actually had MORE fun than I normally would have when drinking. There was a couple people there who harrassed me for not drinking, but they weren't really close friends so it didn't bother me, instead I retaliated by making fun of their drunken ridiculousness! What really mattered to me is that my close friends that were there supported my decision not to drank. I'm finally starting to feel like group and AA along with the support of family and friends is beginning to pay off!
