When I first got sober more than a year ago, I worried about joining the same gatherings that I had loved — only now as someone who doesn’t drink. I was afraid that friends would judge me or that I wouldn’t have any fun. But soon enough, I learned a few tips and tricks to continue to enjoy social gatherings even without the allure of alcohol.

If you’re in recovery, you don’t need to send your regrets for every invitation you get. (Of course, going back to old social habits and environments is not for every person.) Even if you’re not an addict and you’re just not drinking for any number of reasons, you can still go to a party — and enjoy yourself.

Here are my best tips.
