I am just over 2 months sober and am having the hardest time in regards to my friends. Some don't understand why I have chosen to stop drinking. They keep insisting I am not an alcoholic and like to remind me of how much fun I am when I am drinking. Saturday night I had a small group over to my home because I agreed to host a network marketing party. My friends brought over beer and wine, filled the fridge...and drank the night away. I was up at the end of the night with 3 remaining intoxicated buddies...me drinking water and trying not to feel uncomfortable. This does not challenge my sobriety, but it does create discomfort. How do I seperate my sobriety, or is this part of it? I am not feeling judgemental because they drink, I just know that for me it is no longer an option.
