Thank you for writing this. My partner has been sober for six years, and every day she goes through the same nonsense — endless calls for wine on social media, job offers at hip workplaces with ‘craft beer Fridays’, events where the booze is free but bottled water costs $8 (if it’s available at all). It feels like the entire world is turning into that character from the shower: the person who can’t handle it when someone at the party isn’t getting sloshed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
