Sober for 9 yrs and your story SO resonates! I have not been invited to certain functions because I do not drink, as if others fear I may try to abolish all consumption or try to convert them to AA. Some friends still treat me with kid-gloves, trying to think up of fun activities that will not light my fire to consume all the liquor behind the bar! The tears I cried while drinking don’t stop as many have fell from my sober eyes, feeling as if I might be some pariah-dating has suffered. The struggle continues for respect as a smart & beautiful woman who is sober.

I love this side of the ‘pool’ though and thankful to have floated on over.
