Being in long time recovery I have faced hurdles in many areas of my life. Learning how to live again in every situation was vital to my long term recovery. One of the hurdles I faced was learning to have fun again without alcohol. Every event during my drinking days included alcohol and revolved around my ability to drink. I had to give it time to “learn” how to have fun without alcohol, so give yourself time to learn this new skill. I talked to others in recovery and tried new activities to encourage this new skill.
What are your hurdles in recovery?
