In this coming August, I will be 3 years sober(from alcohol). My 21st bday is coming up in a few days and its really stressing me out. I AM going to go out and hang out at bars with my friends, as I have been doing for the past few years- even though I don't drink... but now I'll be able to go wherever I want without worrying about ID. I wish I could drink so bad, just a few. It's weird when you're at a bar, everyone is drinking, and you're not. It pisses me off knowing that I can't even have 2 or 3 beers... or even ONE, for the rest of my fuckin life. Most of you will probably tell me to avoid bars. The thing is, there really isn't anything else to do. Nowhere else to go out and meet women, hang out with friends, ect. The way I see it is that if I have to avoid certain settings because of alcohol, the alcohol has won the battle. On the other hand, they(bars) make me want to drink. It's really a lose/lose situation.
