So this Friday I am heading out-out on the town with a great friend back home. My lovely party loving friend….
Although she seems/is super supportive of my non-drinking, there’s a huge part of me that is waivering about my own desire to give it some laldy and allow myself a night off the wagon. And I am quite easily led astray in the right circumstances. It only takes a second to say yes please at a bar.
It is fair to say that we both fancy an evening of getting all glammed up and putting the world to rights. She is single and ready to mingle after her CoVid drought. I am supportive of providing a wing-woman role.
On the other hand, I’m in a great place having done 438 days off alcohol. I’m not an alcoholic, just someone who feels better minus the social hangovers, hangxiety, dooms & bad decision making associated with boozy nights out.
I could just do one night off; but as I am a very all or nothing person, getting back to full TT after one successful night out would be hard. I think I’m pretty fun still sober, but let’s face it a drink is great fun.
Could I, should I, would you?
I guess I just need some words of guidance/peer support from you guys right now if you have any pearls of wisdom to offer x
