    The joys of being sober

    Hi all
    I was coming home from work and called in to my mothers,the next door neighbor was banging her carpet rug against the wall while 2 young lads(about 13) where watching her.
    One of the lads said "what you doing that to the rug for? will it not start?" to which the neighbor replied "its not a fecking magic carpet".

    Now this is not hilarious but i could not stop laughing...if i was not sober a few weeks now i don't think i would have even noticed what was going on around me

    Great story Jodie
    I remember after a few weeks sober, a friend from here and I were talking and I can't even remember what was said but we both laughed and giggled like crazy over something really stupid and I thought, wow.... Sober actually can be fun! :H

    For me so much more true than moments missed being drunk. Then I normally found something amusing, but it's the anxiety ridden hangover time that seems to rob us of most.

    Jodie - funny story! Isn't it great to be able to focus on others that surround you rather than dwell on yourself and be down in the dumps?
