Whether you’re sober a month or 17 years, it can be challenging to step out and attend events like a concert or wedding. That being said, it IS possible and there ARE tools in place to help you enjoy your time while maintaining sobriety!
- Seek support prior to the event to boost confidence and reassure you of your strength
- Bring a friend who’s also sober (even if it’s just for the occasion)
- Drive yourself so you have an easy exit should the event become too much
- Have your phone on you at all times to phone a friend if you feel you need additional support
