Start a New Tradition With Friends or Family
St. Patrick’s Day is a celebration of the life of St. Patrick, a prominent Irish figure. Unfortunately, many people now equate the day to wearing the color green and drinking beer and whiskey when that is not what the day was truly intended to be. One of the ways you can have a sober St. Patrick’s Day is to start a new tradition with your family and friends. Maybe the tradition involves learning more about Saint Patrick and doing something that truly honors his memory, or maybe you can make a new family-friendly game using green shamrocks. Starting your own tradition allows you to build a bond with family and friends while also staying sober.

Consider Skipping St. Patrick’s Day
Lastly, if the temptation to drink is too strong for you, consider skipping the day entirely. Not everyone is at a stage in their recovery where they can put themselves in situations that may trigger a relapse. If you think that spending time with certain friends may put you in a bad situation, or you feel like celebrating St. Patrick’s Day may compromise your sobriety, it is best to simply skip the festivities and stay home for the day.
