After yesterday’s post I had someone message me & ask me how I’ve dealt with loosing friends based off my decision to not drink. She told me that she recently gave up drinking, feels that no one wants to hang out with her anymore. She asked if I ever felt lonely, as she often does now that she doesn’t drink.We are all different and I’m by no means an expert, but I felt her message 100%. I remember when I first quit drinking, I’d try to make non-drinking plans with friends & they’d give me endless excuses. Many nights where a friend would say they have to stay in to finish homework or whatever, then I’d see them posting videos/pictures of them drinking on. And let me tell you, that shit hurts, I don’t care how strong or independent you are, it stings. I spent a lot of weekend nights alone. And while I didn’t mind hanging out with these friends as they drank, I was one less person to drink with them. I’ll never forget one night I was out at a bar with a group of friends & one of the girls looked at me & said, “why are you even here if you’re not going to drink, it’s a buzzkill.” As much as I wanted to slap her across the face, I realized in a way she was right. Not in the sense that I should be drinking, but why was I there? I was wanting the best of two worlds, thinking I could have my cake and eat it too. But that’s just not reality & it never will be. In time, I realized I didn’t even want that lifestyle, I just was used to it. It was familiar, which was comforting. Some of my greatest memories and biggest break through moments have involved a scary decision and mostly always putting myself in an uncomfortable/unfamiliar situation. Change can be great, especially when you do it for yourself 😘.
