Thread: Any Sober People Out there?

    Default Any Sober People Out there?

    Just cause I'm sober and don't drink or do drugs, doesn't mean I'm not cool. Really, I am, I swear. Any other people out there who may want to meet up with other sober people at the festival, just in case the clouds of smoke and cups of alcohol become a bit overwhelming? someone once told me that sober people at rock concerts sometimes carry yellow balloons to indicate their sobriety and a welcome sign to other sober people. anything like that at coachella?

    I'm more sober than an energy drink with a typo on its label.

    I do really stupid things when I'm drunk, so I will not be consuming.

    Well, not much anyway..

    Under normal circumstances I would be drinking at Coachella, but I'm nearly 3 months pregnant, so no booze for me this time. I'll probably spend most of my time as the sober babysitter for my fiance anyway.
    I'm starving... let's get some f*ckin french toast!

    I don't smoke, drink, or do drugs. I'll be sober the entire time with friends who will also be sober the entire time. I've never heard about the yellow balloon thing, that's kinda cool.

    Well, Ive seen it happen at county fairs, amusement parks, parades, and other public events, but the ballons where all types of shapes, sizes and colors, and the people carrying them were about 5 or 6 years old. They looked sober.

    I don't do drugs and I don't plan on drinking for this event for a number of reasons like cost, heat, and the hassle of sneaking it in. I have no problem with drinking and I do drink but I can never understand why some people can't have fun sober and feel the need to drink.

    Whaaat? Sometimes I feel uncool because i'm NOT sober. Those who can remain sober the entire time without temptation leading them astray are the cool ones in my book.

    But...I love alcohol.

    I think you should do the yellow balloon thing woogs! But make sure you write "I AM WOOGIE846" on the balloon with a black permanent marker.

    THAT would be kinda cool.

    I don't know what the whole "straight edge" mentality is. i don't have anything against drinking or drugs per se, it's not a moral thing, or a superiority thing. it's a recovering addict don't want to relapse kind of thing. i know drugs will most likely be everywhere and that might be kind of hard to deal with, that's all.

    I actually don't usually like drinking or doing drugs at concerts (especially Coachella) because what is the fun of not remembering the 300 dollar experience because you were passed out on the grass all day.

    I'll be implementing my zero tolerance policy this year. Zero tolerance for sobriety.

    Hey,
    I know what you mean Leigh, I don't know about the yellow balloons, but a get together idea is kinda cool. I was thinking that too. I would hate to ruin the experience because of temptation. I don't drink anymore. Tomorrow will be much more enjoyable without a beer today. Keep me Humble.

    I don't think I want to carry a balloon, but I know what you mean, leighleigh. I think it's a pretty nice idea.
    A bunch of deadheads had a group called the Wharf Rats -- sober people you could seek out at the shows if you wanted.
