So last night somebody asked me, “what’s the one thing that the most people relapse over? Break up? Death in the family? Sh*t day or week or month of work?” I told him the answer was none and all of those. There can always be a “reason” to drink. My answer was, “One of 2 things. Fear or ego”.
fomo is real for a lot of us and most events we attend likely serve alcohol. Why can you say no one night and yes the next? Only you know that. The ego part isn’t ego like “I am sooooo hot and cool and rad and 🔥”. Quite the opposite. This is our ego that worries about what people will think about them not drinking so it’s basically insecurity. I GET IT! However. If someone is going to judge me in a negative fashion for choosing what I put in my glass? Welp. Tata. Maybe they need to look into their own relationship with alcohol. Not my business, nor do I care. Stay in your lane, do the best you can, and hang with us.
Happy FRIDAY, sober family! Keep it simple today.
