My Awesome Sober Vacation

I am on vacation with my friends. Because I go completely insane when any mind or mood altering chemical enters my body, I have to plan for my self. First of all, I don't use no matter what is happening around me. Second of all, I make sure everyone around me knows I do not drink. I don't tell everyone I am in recovery. I just make sure the two or three people closest to me are their for support. Finally, I have a plan. I grab a bottle of water. If something bothers me, I call or text people. Or I tell the people I am with about my feelings. Usually I try to have cab fare or my own way home. I just am clear with myself- YOU may drink, smoke weed or whatever but not me. I can have a great time substance free. Thanks friends.
