A family member sent a photo via our phone group (just our close cirle of friends are in it) a large glass of red wine she’d poured for herself, the caption being “happy place”.
I snapped a pic of my soda water and sent it through to the girls, saving “Cheers!”
A mutual friend jumped in and said “Well that’s not very exciting is it??” This is the same person who told me bluntly “I can’t support you” the first time I tried quitting booze. She is a lot nicer than I am making her sound but I think my quitting booze pushes her buttons. She and I really are only party friends, so it’s quite a possibility the friendship will change because I’m sober.
What is your experience with the reactions from those around you? How did you cope with changing friendships? Any insights, tips, advice is appreciated!
