On the thread about keeping alcohol in the house I noticed that whether we said yes or no we were all very aware of alcohol in ours environments. This led me to something I have noticed about myself since getting sober.
I watch other people drink. Even strangers on the train. Its not envy but worry that motivates me. I’m always worried people have a drinking problem when they drink 2 beers on the 45 minute train ride home…after all that’s what I did.
Sometimes I can smell it on someone…I worry about them too.
Friends might make throw away comments about drinking episodes….and I worry.
