So, when you decide to become sober SOME people will think it’s completely normal to call you boring! But I can assure you, there is nothing more boring than a drunk person….and this is why…..
Sober people don’t repeat themselves over and over and act as if it’s the first time they’ve told you something you just heard….43 seconds ago. That’s boring.
Sober people don’t slur they’re words as if their batteries are running out. That’s boring.
Sober people don’t stay in bed the next day after a night out, or have to lie down with a flannel on their head saying “I’ll never drink again”. That’s boring.
Sober people don’t shout over others when they’re talking. That’s boring.
Sober people don’t forget what happened the night before and have to ask people if they behaved okay or if they upset anyone. That’s boring.
Sober people get out there and try new things rather than sit in a dingy building where their feet stick to the floor. That’s boring.
Sober people can drive home after a night out rather than waiting in a taxi cue with drunk people who act like it’s a Black Friday sale when a taxi pulls up . That’s boring.
Sober people don’t spend their lives wondering when they can next drink alcohol. That’s boring.
Ahhhhh, I could go on and on but you get the jist. Being called boring since I’ve stopped drinking alcohol is something I’ve got used to. It used to make me feel insecure that there was truth in it, now it makes me laugh. Sober isn’t boring…..being drunk is.
Simple as that.
