This can be a difficult pill to swallow for some old friends, colleagues or acquaintances who may feel that they have been abandoned or not been shown consideration in the process. But everyone is on their own path through life and they have to do what is best for them. Again, I reiterate, people basically do what they WANT to do. And it has to be said, if you were a real friend, or cared for that person in a genuine way, you would give them your blessing and wish them luck, health and happiness in their new life. It may well be a difficult task, but it is one which you would willingly do.
It can also be difficult for a friend from the past to appreciate that this person who they thought they knew could change so much; they, after all, do not often get to see the entire transformation. When they knew this drinker, alcohol was likely a constant mistress, and many things may also have been hidden from them. They cannot bring themselves to visualize this person as a sober, healthy and happy individual who is totally in control of his or her life.
Speaking for myself, I do not find non-drinkers, teetotallers, recovered alcoholics (or whatever label you wish to use) in any way boring. In fact, they are a breath of fresh air; they are articulate, interesting, almost pedantically truthful (that's part of the process of overcoming their alcohol related weakness), and extremely strong people (they have won their battle and they know it)...and as an added bonus they are always capable of driving home safely!
Reverting to the question of whether it is possible to stop drinking and still enjoy yourself, the answer is an unmistakable "yes". Life is immeasurably better, healthier, happier and a whole lot more fun once a person finds their own strength to kick their old excessive drinking ways. Bye, bye old mistress, onwards to a new life.
