Music in a bar…sober.

by ithunts

So one of the things I do with my time is play the drums in a band. I have been playing since I was 13 and have been with my current band for the past 3 years and thoroughly enjoy it, but I knew it was gonna be a bit sticky playing out. Well, tonight I got to experience just how sticky and in reality it turned out to be easier than I thought it would be. It probably helps that I have been going to a lot of AA meetings and reading a lot of the literature, but I wasn’t at all tempted or feeling left out. In fact, a friend was there to see me play, an old drinking buddy, and before we played I was talking to him and to be honest I wasn’t envious at all. Between watching him go after drink after drink to smelling like a still to watching him stumble with his lighter I felt pretty damn good about this new sobriety of mine!
