I believe it is important to know that recovery can be fun. We can enjoy ourselves without having to imbibe vast amounts of booze. Sometimes young people come to the rooms with a feeling that the fun part of life is over – but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many ways to entertain ourselves, to have fun playing together, to share time and space with people who like to laugh and are quick to smile. Yes, recovery can have many “faces.” I have attended symphonies, ballets, plays, and I love movies. I have also traveled quite a bit in my recovery, now that I can trust myself to go from point A to point B without losing myself along the way like I used to. I love new adventures. A day at a time!
