PAR-TAY!!!!

what a great night last night. went to a birthday party for an old friend of mine. i have to admit i was a bit apprehensive to go, mostly unsure of what it would be like, but i had a blast! ran into so many people i used to work, party and play with and everyone was so excited that i was sober, me too. it was so nice to be out and having a good time and the thought of drinking really wasn't even present. obviously i thought about it, what with almost everyone drinking, but seeing some of the people who were drunk quickly set me straight again. ran into a guy who used to party with me just as hard if not harder, and he kind of dropped that he had gotten sober. whatta trip! he goes to some meetings i used to go to and he seems so happy. we chatted for quite a bit and the differences in us from what we used to be like was so evident. the weirdest event of the night was probably at the end when i left. i said my goodbyes and walked out to the car with the friends i had gone with. i honestly couldn't remember the last time or anytime i walked away from a party, and was a:) able to walk b:)coherent and sober and c:)left without offending anyone, doing anything stupid or generally making an ass of myself. who would have thought any of this could have been possible?!
