The other thread gave me this idea –
I thought members would share some of the things
and don’t do
that help us get through the pressures
of the Holiday
in a Sober, Wiser way!
ok – I’ll start –
I don’t watch television.
sometinmes, at a friend’s house….
but I don’t watch commercials.
I don’t read magazines at this time of year.
I don’t listen to ‘shout’ radio.
I don’t listen to ‘all advertising and two minute tunes’ radio.
It’s just too … frantic.
And lately, commercial music is just … shallow.
The pressure from advertising
is just too ridiculous for words.
Why put ourselves through that?
So I’m a NPR person.
You’d be amazed how much stress that gets rid of.
One sober activity
I’m trying out this year
since I have a nicer car-
Several friends and I are
going to make the ‘run’ around Butte
admiring people’s Christmas lights & home decorations.
It’s relatively FREE OF CHARGE
(Butte just isn’t that big so it’s not like it’ll take MUCH gas to do)
we’re in a warm place,
holiday music on the radio
and looking at the pretty lights.
With Sober Friends.
