My husband asks, why does NA beer exist? So that they can still sell you something?
As we discussed it further, he asked about the existence of fake cocaine (like, does it exist). And do we really drink to 'fit in', as if drinking is some big popularity contest in junior high school.
"You can't need to fit in - so much - that you give up what's best for you."
If you are not long-term sober, and you're drinking fake beer, this might be a good audio to listen to more than once.
Comments from the chat:
Girl Named Sam: "Not drinking is job #1. Fuck other people (I'm getting into the spirit). You don't need to tell people or not tell people. It's about YOU, not them."
Neil: "Fuck Labatts! Sorry for the language!"
NatureNancy: "I tried that substitution and it didn't work for me. This time I am sailing through without consuming non alcoholic beer and wine. I was always comparing the taste. Not as good; think it guarantees you will lapse."
