  1. Very cool site. I have to admit, I likely won’t go 100% teetotal, but even in at large business dinners I’ll generally stick to water. I even cut out the soda (weight loss reasons). Once or twice a month I get pulled astray by a blood Mary. Awesome site, and I look forward to reading the rest of your insight!

  2. Learning to socialize without a crutch is the most exciting part for me. Even if I wind up going back to drinking, which I may as I’m just experimenting with being off alcohol right now, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to do it less often and enjoy myself just as much when I’m not (AND enjoy alcohol in a lot more moderation). I find I do a pretty good job of adapting the “social buzz” and allowing my natural silly side to come out as everyone else’s is being brought out by their drinks.

    • I find that too – if others are drinking and there is a sociable atmosphere, I find myself becoming uninhibited and almost feeling a little ‘drunk’! I guess it just depends on the environment. Thanks for stopping by and commenting! 🙂

  3. Haha, since I have been sober I have been thinking of making a list like this. Thank you for doing it for me! There are so many reasons to stay sober, not enough reasons to not be.
