Six hundred and seventy days ago, I had my last drink—a mimosa. I wish it had been a Sam Adams, my drink of choice.Like so many twentysomethings, drinking was a big part of my life.You can tell them, “I’ve been in six rehabs, four psych wards, and I’ve been arrested for assault.” And, they’re like, “Of course you have.” The downside is that they, too, are often a ticking time bomb.Natasha, an ex-pat who's been on the wagon for 10 years agrees.The old “I’ve wrestled with my demons and won” line? How about a simple, “I’m a pretty hot colossal f**k up”?It’s always a little awkward when a potential date wants to “meet you for a drink.” Telling them you’re sober feels like confessing to some horrible chronic STD.

That’s one of the main upsides to dating somebody who’s also sober.

The problem was that a few drinks were never enough. Sometimes I would experience blackouts, unable to recall hours at a time, waking up at some guy’s house whom I had just met.

The shame would wash over me as I tried to piece it all together.

In my case, there were months of lying about his sobriety when I just wasn’t sure whether he was drinking or not.

Had I begun the list sooner, instead of listening to the words I so wanted to believe, I would have saved myself at least a year of heartbreak.
