Where is the Smoothie Bar?

I was inspired by this post by Rebel Grrrl Italiana, http://lachristagreco.com/2012/05/26/youre-no-fun-living-sober-at-26

I tried drinking a lot in High School to make friends, but I never enjoyed it and once HS ended, so did drinking. It’s not an activity that my family is really into either. I did not grow up in a home where alcohol was present. I did have an alcoholic father, but only saw him once a year. I also see a lot of people who at older ages drink and do drugs so much they are not healthy and not all there anymore. It seems like such a waste.

A few years ago while working at a job I would go out drinking with co-workers. It was fun, but I got bored fast and when that job ended so did my friendships. Finally I am at a point where I don’t want to be around people who drink and definitely not anyone using drugs. It isn’t because I feel it is wrong, but rather because it’s not something I enjoy nor do I like how it makes me feel. These days I only have fun on my terms and while I am willing to try new activities, changing my state with drugs/alcohol is not one.

It is rough finding new friends that want to be sober. I REALLY miss going out and being sociable with a drink in hand, but that won’t happen again until smoothie bars are open till 2am.
