Most people think of drinking when they think of summer activities. They think of margaritas at the Mexican restaurant or beer at the Independence Day celebration. What do you do if you are new to recovery and you want to have fun this summer without alcohol? Luckily, there are options available to you. Living in recovery means that you are going to change your lifestyle. So you want to find activities that don’t even make you want to drink.
1. Go Hiking or Enjoy Nature
If you are doing something outdoorsy that requires a lot of exercise, you are not going to want to drink. You can go to the park, you can explore that new walking trail by your house, you can hike up the mountain, you can go for a walk on the beach. The opportunities are endless. And the exercise will be good for you and help you to get more endorphins, which is going to help you in your recovery.
