Good morning! My name is Lauren and I'm a grateful, not boring, recovering alcoholic/addict. Some people I used to hang out with haven't invited me to hang out since I got sober. I don't know if they think that I think I am better than them or that I don't like people that drink. It's not that at all. I just can't drink, because I can't just have one, or just drink socially, I take it to a whole other level. Or maybe they think I am boring, or dull. I am still fun. I am actually more fun, because I don't get loud and do stupid things like I used to do. And just because I quit drinking doesn't mean I sit in my house all day and judge the world. I do fun stuff, with my family, with my kids, friends. We go hiking, swimming, and fishing. This summer we had a "Summer '14 Bucket List." It consisted of 75 fun things to do during the summer. Just enjoying the world, and those I care about about, instead of wasting my time an energy and not remebering a lot of stuff. I have learned to have fun without being wasted. If you think sobriety is boring, you are not doing it right! :) Have a great day!
I'm Lauren. Get inside the head of a recovering alcoholic/ addict.
