    Just because I'm sober doesn't mean I want to hang out with them. I hate that AA mentality.

    My brother might be interested if he's coming, than again, he fell off the wagon last time I brought him to Coachella so might not be the best NA person to share with
    Recent studies at Yale have shown that being an asshole is detrimental to one's health. Professor Sweetlove, a Psychology professor, came on record as saying:
    "Assholes and local desert rats tend to live shorter lives and have less consensual sexual relations than non assholes. It could be due to lower testoserone levels or a chemical imbalance in the brain but some people are just wired to be.... well.... assholes"

    I hate the phrase "clean/sober". It implies that anyone who is not sober is "dirty". I hope your high horse fucks you in the ass.

    I will probably be sober almost all weekend, But Thursday night is party night. That's because I have the ability to decide how much intoxicant I am going to consume and when to consume it.

    So, if you're weak willed, that's called "clean"? OK, I'll file that info away.

    The are plenty of debbie downers on this board who would fit right in with this group's conversations.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    We have a pretty good size group from all over the country that meets each day for a meeting and has stayed in contact during and after the festival. Fairly even mix of AA and NA members. There are at least 8 of us camping this year and we're trying to organize our arrival to camp near each other this year. My partner and I have been meeting up with others in revcovery at every festival we go to and it has by far made it a more comfortable and enjoyable experience. We have a phone number and email list so respond to this thread or send me a private message and I'll add you on. For information on our plans check out the soberchella or Coachella AA social groups. we also have some post up now on www.soberchella.com
    Wow, 12 step meetings at Coachella, who knew? SOBERCHELLA.COM

    I'm a reasonable man, get off my case....

    I thought as per coachella tradition, rapist wore carefully crafted staches grown for the event and lured in prospective rapees with gummy worms.

    ....maybe I'm wrong.

    We kind of are, but we were way worse when loaded. Just be glad you don't have to pay for as many jail visits, attend as many funeral for the friends and family we kill, etc, etc, etc....

    and thanks for the change you gave me, panhandling was way easier than stealing.

    I gotta say i'm a little disappointed in the comments i've seen some of you make. This person is trying to have a good time within their limits and meet like minded people and you guys are just here shitting on him/her and putting him/her down.

    I know this forum is full of haters, but god damn, this was a surprise to me. Not like this thread has been made by others 50 other times.
    Nothing but people hating on this forum!

    Yeah i'm 6'5", that doesn't give you the right to ask me to move cus i'm standing in front of you at a concert. You want a good spot, get there before me!
