If you've been sober that long I'm sure you can stay strong and resist it. Did your uncle even know what the celebration was for though? That's pretty inconsiderate.

#33 sounds like someone other than OP on here has a drinking problem maybe you should try being sober life can be fun with out being drunk all the time.

Instead of all this, just keep the unopened bottle as a decoration/reminder of OP's struggle, and as a testament to OP's will

Haha, Jesus Christ. I was kidding! It was a god damn joke. I thought that'd be pretty obvious, but you're right.. I'll sign up for AA and NA right now. Can't seem to kick this cocaine and whiskey sour addiction. I mean, they go together so, so well. Haha.

I thought since you picked up and went along with it, other people would realize it was a joke as well. But, I was wrong and apparently I need to go to AA. We'll have a helluva story to tell there though! "My name is McFeelii and the Internet says I'm an alcoholic" Haha..

"Today, we were having a celebratory family event for my nephew. I bought a very expensive bottle of champagne for him. Turns out, we were celebrating the fact he has been one year sober. FML"

#3: My dad a recovering alcoholic. He's been off it for probably ten years, but he's still terrified of alcohol and returning to his perpetually drunk state. No alcohol is allowed in the house, at family functions, or by family members. We do this out of respect for him because the craving is ALWAYS THERE.

Yeah, leave #3 alone. She's just an ignorant little teenager who thinks she's lived life because she got drunk once or twice and decided to start wearing big girl panties.

45: Spoken like another truly clueless teenager. What #3 said is so profoundly stupid it almost defies comprehension. Only someone who knows so little about addiction could make such an ignorant comment.

#57 learning About it some book at school does not mean you have knowledge on it, it just means you've heard about it but to have true knowledge and understanding of it comes from actual life experience, and you saying you saying that you're in 11th grade just proves docbastards point you are just another teenager that thinks they know everything.

@66 How about you try getting over a drug addiction and see if you feel the same way as you do now? I'm sure 25 would rather have a sober dad than alcohol in the house.

I did not say that I was a teenager that knows all. However I do believe I am armed with a good amount of knowledge on the subject. I have had a soccer coach who's was sadly a raging alcoholic. I understood why he wouldn't show up and eventually quit. Although the knowledge from books helped me understand the true hardships he faced during his battle to sobriety.

#83 I think you should stop talking just because someone has a problem and they are trying to get better doesn't makes them losers or weak it makes the strong and smart

catchmenow - I said you're a clueless teenager because 99.9999% of teenagers are clueless. I used to be a clueless teenager too, and it wasn't until I was much older that I realised just how little I knew (though I thought I knew plenty).

Even as a teenager myself, I know that Doc was correct. I might have learned it or may be learning it, but I won't KNOW it for possibly decades to come. Everything isn't in books or on TV, more of the worlds youth needs to know this, not just me

#43....Excuse me, Mr. High and Mighty. When did you become the ignorant teenager police? Oh, never, you say? Wow. Ok then, shut the fuck up and stop being such a judgmental prick! No one asked for your uneducated opinion. Buh bye

#96 thats the most stupid thing i have ever heard. You are just assuming that every teenager is stupid because you were. Thats complete bullshit!! She might be young but she might have had enough experience with alcoholism to have an own impression. Sorry if any words are written wrong. Im not a native

I would of smashed it on his car and said I wanted to christen your car for you It's my way of saying thank you for everything you've done for me today. i promise it didn't go unnoticed and then just walk away smiling. .

#53 just because my name is sweetascandy doesn't mean I'm not human like everybody else I admit I make mistakes like everyone and if I were to do something like that I would feel really bad afterward however just because I am sweet doesn't mean I allow for people to step all of over me either.

No. That's the worst thing recovering alcoholics can do. Saying it "wouldn't hurt" is the furthest thing from the truth. You are simply encouraging a relapse for addiction.

Reply

It would hurt a lot. That's the point of going sober! If you've had a drinking problem, even a little sip could make you relapse!

Reply

An alcoholic can't have even one sip, ever. Learn that lesson and don't ever say such a fucking stupid thing again. Because there will be some who will be weak and wanting to drink so badly that they will use your words to convince themselves to drink again. And an alcoholic CAN'T stay below tipsy. That's what makes them an alcoholic.

'One cigarette can't hurt. I've been quit for two years.' - Me. 'Fuck me, why did I smoke that cigarette.' - Me. Six months of trying to quit /again/ later.

All it takes is one sip to send them into a full-blown addiction, possibly worse than the first time..... Never a good idea to give someone recovering from an addiction even a little bit of what they were addicted to.

Reply

That's right. It's the same reason I get rid of all my TV shows during exam time. All it takes is one little slip, one moment of weakness, and before you know it you're stewing in your own filth watching every single episode of Friends in existence. Don't be like me. God help you, don't be like me.

Wow, that was a dick move on your uncle's part. Congrats on 1 year sober OP and hopefully you didn't drink of that champagne.

Just distribute it to everyone else to allow them to have a good time and show everyone your restraint. Let them celebrate your accomplishment while you keep up the good work.

That would be a pretty shit way for his friends and family to celebrate that particular achievement with him.

Like any other state, Wisconsin has recovering alcoholics, just because we are the dairy state and happen to have some of the best breweries, doesn't mean all of us are drunks. You're making us Wisconsinites look bad.
