1. Plan a sober outing.
Maybe you can plan a dinner at a restaurant you enjoy and serves a variety of wholesome items. Otherwise, you could maybe schedule a time to enjoy a shared hobby such as golfing, hiking, swimming, or crafts. Volunteer recovery work could also occupy your time and provide a way to meet other fun, interesting recovery people. You could even host your own meeting. If you want to, perhaps it’s time to order some recovery literature from the My 12 Step Store to help you inspire others.
