So technically I’ve been sober all the way from July 4th up to now. I say technically since I haven’t willingly agreed to drink any beverage that contains alcohol. However, this past weekend I was tricked. I should have had my guard up, but I was blind sided. Here’s what happened.

Friends and I were celebrating my roommate’s birthday at a local dance club this past weekend. I was walking around with my one friend, I’ll call him Jim, when he said he wanted to grab a drink. He knows I don’t drink now so he said he’d get me a water. As i mentioned before having a glass in hand helps me “think” I’m drinking, when in fact I’m not. So I gladly took him up on the offer.

While Jim was grabbing his drink and my water I ended up talking with another friend. Jim tapped me on the shoulder and handed me a glass. It was clear liquid with ice. I was a little surprised since I saw carbonation bubbles (that should have tipped me off), but I just thought he got me soda instead of water. I thanked him and took my first sip. The moment I swallowed, I thought something wasn’t right. It was sweet, but yet tangy. I couldn’t fully tell, but I knew this was neither water nor soda. It had a distinct taste of alcohol! After confronting him on it, he confessed, it was Captain Morgain’s (Rum) and Seven Up.

I gave away the drink to my girlfriend, but the damage had already been done. I had taken a swig of alcohol.

It’s not a big deal, but I was a little let down, but technically, since I didn’t willfully drink it, I don’t consider it a slip up. The lesson I learned…be more careful around drunk people! Haha…

Anyway, I haven’t updated the numbers in a while…

Days Sober: 286
Days Remaining: 79
