New Year’s Eve is the time everyone eagerly waits for. It is the day to celebrate the upcoming year. A year that is hoped to bring happiness and health to all.
However, New Year’s Eve these days is celebrated a little differently, that is, by throwing parties and serving alcohol and illegal drugs. This is especially difficult for the ones who are recovering from addiction. For them, the parties need to be substance-free. But how is that possible when all others are drinking?
Well, here are some ideas that will help you celebrate a sober New Year’s Eve.
- Become a host
The best way to restrict alcohol and drugs at a party is to throw one yourself. You can host a sober party this New Year’s Eve and completely restrict the use of substances. However, this party should mainly include guests who know, understand, and respect your sobriety. This way, you will be able to enjoy a sober party with your loved ones.
- Organize a game night
A New Year’s Eve party isn’t always supposed to include alcohol and drugs. You can also organize a game night and invite your close buddies and family. The idea of a New Year’s Eve party is to spend the moments with your loved one and drinking isn’t the only way to do it. A game night can also be a great way to celebrate.
Another great way to celebrate New Year’s Eve is by volunteering. Giving away is a great gesture and it will make you feel a lot happier than drinking and partying with friends. Moreover, the people you help on this day are sure to shower their blessings on you. Thus, why not do a good deed than spoil your health?
- Participate in holiday marathon meetings
Holiday marathon meetings are organized by Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. These meetings are a perfect alternative to the usual New Year’s Eve parties. Holiday marathon meetings will allow you to meet other people like you who are also recovering from addiction and want to avoid substances. Here, you can help and receive help to stay sober.
Similar to AA meetings, we at Mallard Lake Detox Center in Dallas, Texas also organize meetings for people recovering from addiction on such occasions. The idea here is to help them maintain their sobriety.
