    Probably because maintaining a sober, clean lifestyle is a daily challenge for these people and acknowledging that challenge within a safe space of like minded peers helps them?

    I mean, yeah, hanging out at their daily sobriety meetings probably wouldn't be fun or productive for you if you aren't working on your own sobriety. It's not as if these individuals go around screaming about sobriety and trying to force you into it. I don't understand how every year this is such a difficult concept for people to understand. They have meetings that help them. Then they go and enjoy the festival. They even hang out around people who are demonstrably not sober without issue. All of the ones I've ever met are cool as fuck people.

    You don't understand addiction much. In order to stay sober, you pretty much do have to remind yourself "stay sober" very frequently.

    I agree. I am by no means "sober" myself, nor do I have any desire to be. But I respect those who do, and like Cara, the ones I've met are all cool as fuck. For some reason, however, certain people like baily and DFrank find the presence of a sober group to be threatening, and hence lash out against it. This is almost certainly due to some combination of stupidity and insecurity.

    I don't get why people not part of the group give a shit and feel the need to bring down the soberchella meetings. Who cares what other people are doing with their time at Coachella?

    Fun Fact™ Pretty sure I've managed to wear a Cult shirt to each boardie picture for the last three years. Also pretty sure I was the only one who was aware and amused.

    Isn't being addicted to drugs more like being part of a cult than wanting to stop taking drugs?

    Other than the examples in this thread, yes.
    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.

    The insecurity level of making fun of AA is around the same insecurity level of verbally assaulting a little kid........a really nice little kid who helps people with problems that by-in-large can't be helped in a lot of other places unless you have lots of time and money.
