100 dating sober
In sobriety, I give people a couple dates to woo me and if I'm not digging it, I move on immediately.
I can also make clear-headed decisions about whether I want to sleep with a person or not.
My adolescence was riddled with substance abuse and insanity. Little did I know I was in store for a much more powerful ride by not drinking or drugging.
Being sober, I've made plenty of terrible, impulsive, typical 20-something decisions.
And since I'm not dulling those emotions with any substances, it's gives me more incentive to leave behind a person or situation that is causing me distress.
There's a big difference between actual friendships and having a group of drinking buddies.
Since I wasn't drinking, I had to be super choosy about who I was spending my time with.
I moved up in my career, started a business and I'm 5 weeks away from finishing a Master's degree.
I've been tackling super ambitious projects like a writing a book and pursuing a long-desired career in journalism.
My gal pals are people that I not only enjoy spending time with, but that are similarly ambitious and proactive. I freed up a lot of time not being drunk and not being hungover.
