Why it is Actually Cool to be Sober
Nobody likes beggarYou are young and getting drugs and alcohol can prove to be difficult at times. Finding money and people who can provide these things for you can be hit and miss. If you are fiending for drugs and alcohol and get desperate, you can really start to get on people's nerves. Being sober cancels out your urgency to get the drugs and alcohol you will need to fill the void.
You can remember everythingWhen you do not drink or use you are less likely to have to piece your degrading memories together the next day. Instead you can wake up knowing what you did the day before without doing the walk of shame until you are filled in by your friends. No demoralizing photos or videos will turn up on social media because you did nothing under the influence that can get documented by you just staying sober.
Respect is earnedAlthough you may have done some things in your past that may be sketchy and shady, when you get sober and stay sober, people notice. Not only do they notice, but they start to admire your efforts in recovery. The friends that you get drunk and high with may deem you as a loser, but you can feel awesome that you did something with your life instead of having a constant hangover and lacking motivation to accomplish anything but staying inebriated. Be proud of your sobriety. Staying sober is way cooler than the alternatives that you will ridiculously face getting faded.
