Caps In The Air
When i got sober, i was a junior in high school. I didn't know how to stay sober among my old partying friends. I went to meetings and heard people say, "Get rid of old playmates and play places." I didn't know how I was going to do that. I couldn't change schools.
My old friends realized I wasn't going to party anymore, and I became isolated and lonely. Occasionally, one of my classmates got sober, but it didn't last long. I listened to people talk about what they watched on TV, and I thought, What's wrong with them? Then I realized that I was the one who was different.
