SOBER AF ENTERTAINMENT
I got sober in 1989 and at six weeks sober went to see my favorite band, the Grateful Dead. I had seen them 15 times while I was using drugs and drinking. This time was different, and I felt awkward and I felt like I did not fit in. I was with old friends and they were kind in letting me hang with them, but I was now the odd man out. I somehow found a sober support group called The Wharf Rats.
I understand how important it is to have community and to know that I can still have fun with other people who have decided to have fun and not get drunk or high.
I have a 20 year and 17 year old children. I don't want them getting drunk or high. I want them the have fun and enjoy concerts, sporting events and life with friends. There is little support for people wanting to enjoy concerts and sporting events in a sober environment. We are engaging a community that wants to go to these non-traditional sober areas and support each other to have a great time.
Recover The Fun groups are centered on the creative arts and the outdoors and are designed to remind us that fun can be had without the use of substances. The purpose of the group is to provide a relaxed, friendly, and fun environment where we connect to each other and ourselves - because part of the work of recovery is relearning how to have fun.
Play helps develop and improve social skills. Social skills are learned as part of the give and take of play. During childhood play, kids learn about verbal communication, body language, boundaries, cooperation, and teamwork. As adults, you continue to refine these skills through play and playful communication.
