What we're about

We are BADASS!

BAY AREA DRUG ALCOHOL SOBER SUPERPOWER

As Baldric Shyer states on Teetotally Awesome website ( https://teetotallyawesome.com/ ) :

"It's a Goddamned Super Power. We are autonomous and do things on our own terms."

We are impervious to peer pressure and what the rest of society expects us to do. We are truly transparent. You don't have to second guess if we are behaving a certain way due to us being under the influence. What you see is what you get 24/7 365 days! We are not hiding behind a substance facade.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are a couple. One of us is Sober and the other is a Teetotaler.

We are not religious AND we have many reasons why we do not drink, do drugs or smoke.

The main thing: We CAN and LOVE having fun WITHOUT alcohol and drugs!

Pure Bliss without the Hangover!

The main goal of this group is to be a safe place for those who are living a sober lifestyle. It is for those who are sober, in recovery and are teetotalers. IF YOU ARE NOT COMPLETELY SOBER, PLEASE KIND DO NOT JOIN THIS GROUP. If you do join and we find out you are not living a sober lifestyle, we will ask you to remove yourself. For many people, living a sober lifestyle is a matter of LIFE AND DEATH. It is not a joke or something we take lightly. We will perhaps one day have a group for sober allies, supporters and sober curious. Thank you for understanding.

If you are struggling, please contact your doctor, mental health provider or substance abuse counselor. Go to the nearest AA/NA. We are NOT A SUPPORT GROUP but rather AN ACTIVITIES AND SOCIAL GROUP for those who are living a sober lifestyle.

If you have not been active for 6 months either attending events or hosting you will be removed from the group. I believe we only have 50 person limit to our membership.

Definitions:

Common definitions: A Sober is someone who use to drink, smoke or do drugs (including prescription drugs that are deemed mind-altering and addictive) and has chosen to quit. It is often someone who has problems with substances like a substance abuse disorder.

A teetotaler is someone who never has done any of these things and chooses to abstain. It is often not just for moral or religious reasons but for numerous other reasons. The mere smell of alcohol sends a person into dry heaves. Alcohol in the fridge sends shudders.

There are other terms. In time I would like I would like to develop my own that encompasses more details.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Over the years it has been difficult to find like-minded people to hang out with, date (in the past), live with, and enjoy simple activities with other families. So I would like to start a group that supports such a community.

We love to just hang with people and share experiences and stories.

We have teens who are also Teetotalers and prefer to be around those who are of the same ilk.

Our younger kids often tag along with some of the activities.

We are also neurodiverse.

If you are someone who has the lifestyle mindset of having fun without Alcohol or Drugs, join us! Let's make some awesome memories!

No designated drivers needed. No need to babysit anyone. Shake off the burdens!
