My friend, J, is an alcoholic who hasn't had a drink since July 1st. He still smokes pot but....one thing at a time.
Anyway, he is at a point where he is trying to find sober things to do. Our families bought a boat together and we have made a few sober trips to the lake. His world is opening up to him. I don't think he realized there were so many fun, sober things to do.
Well, this weekend he came over to my neighbor's house for a huge group bike ride. They were to meet at 9am and ride until around noon. Then there would be a party after (where J knew there would be alcohol). J planned on riding for an hour and coming home. Well, he got there at 9am and no one was there. They slowly started showing up and by 10am there were all sitting around mixing gatorade, drinking beer and changing tires. There was no riding going on and J got irritated and finally left and rode on his own.
It's just amazing how alcohol is found in the strangest places. 10 oclock in the morning and you would not expect a bunch of athletes to be throwing back beers before a long ride.
But J is doing well. I don't know how much pot he's smoking but one thing at a time, I guess.
