Boredom in Recovery – Filling the Free Time

Boredom in Recovery – Filling the Free Time

Addiction and alcoholism are time-consuming problems.

As an addict or alcoholic, you likely spent a lot of time looking for your fix. So now that you’re sober, what are you supposed to do with all the free time? It’s no mystery that there’s a lot of initial downtime in sobriety, but this time can be filled with fun sober activities. At our drug and alcohol detox in Stuart, patients fill their down time with art, group therapy, exercise, and more. After finishing your treatment program, explore these tips, tricks, and things to do so you’ll never be bored.

Fun Sober Activities

There are many changes to get used to after completing addiction treatment in Stuart, and readjusting to sober fun is one change. Many people feel bored in recovery, as they’re not used to passing time without drugs or alcohol. Try these fun sober activities instead:

  • Take up a new hobby
  • Visit the gym and start a fitness routine
  • Volunteer within your local community
  • Go on a scavenger hunt with friends
  • Try an escape room with new sober friends

Many of these fun sober group activities are the perfect option for weekend fun with friends. There are many things to do instead of drinking at night, including attending plays, going to amusement parks, evening courses, and hosting drink-free game nights.
