Fun in sobriety and recovery…“Such a simple answer to a complicated question. Anything and everything I want! I am not held down by my addiction anymore. I don’t have to worry about planning everything around my substance use. It also allows for me to remember all my new experiences!” Trista Zamany, Marketing Manager, West Coast Interventions and thatsoberchickyyj
There is a path to sobriety and for many addicts and alcoholics an Addictions Counsellor can assist in helping to grow a life in sobriety because everyone deserves serenity in their life. If one is still struggling with Addiction, an Interventionist can help get the suffering addict and their loved ones headed on a path to living sober and in recovery.
A lot of people find their journey is assisted by Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous, as is has helped many over the years, where there is also opportunities to have lots of fun!
“Things that I do personally now in recovery for “fun in sobriety” that I really didn’t get around to before or felt present when I was doing them:
- Exercise like a machine – one of my favourites is my Peloton bike
- Volunteer and service work
- Be present with my children
- Enjoy each day
- Hike in nature
- Arts and Crafts
- Cooking healthy meals
- show up for people
- deal with life on lifes’ terms
- talking to other alcoholics and addicts
- going out for coffee
- walking or running
- Baking delicious treats
Finding recovery and connecting with individuals that have similar struggles to me has opened my eyes so very much and offered me solutions. The longer I stay sober, the more I come out of the fog and see the extremely chaotic life I was living because I couldn’t show up for myself, let alone anyone else. I don’t have to live that way anymore and can show up for myself and my family and friends; which is such a gift in itself. Living a life in recovery, with the help of an Addictions Counsellor is wonderful way to live!
