Drinking for Two
A sobering memory
I never noted the exact day I stopped drinking, because I always assumed I’d start again.
This negligence robbed me of a sober social media trend where people share screenshots of their sobriety tracker apps. Having nothing momentous to share (“another day where I didn’t drink three shots of tequila while making dinner” doesn’t seem that exciting to anyone but me), I rarely mention my relationship with alcohol on the internet. So I’ve mostly told friends and family in person, usually when they’re about to pour me a glass of wine.
And one instance stands out, bright and shiny, in my mind.
