Hello all. This is my first post here. I’ve been reading some of the past threads and they’ve helped me quite a bit. I’m still a newbie when it comes recovery. I can keep it together during the work week but struggle with not drinking during the weekends. I think alot of it has to do with the situation I’m in. I recently relocated for a new job and I’m away from my friends and family. I don’t have a social circle I can connect with during weekends.
I find that having something to look forward to is key to avoiding drinking. I’ve tried going to AA meetings during Fri/Sat evenings but dreaded going to them. I can usually keep myself busy enough during the morning and afternoon hours on the weekends, but it’s the evenings that I really struggle with.
Other than AA meetings, does anyone have any suggestions on what there is to do on a Friday or Saturday evening that doesn’t involve staying at home?? I’d hang at my local gym or take some sort of class but my gym closes early during Fri/Sat and I haven’t been able to find any classes I can take that are offered on a Friday or Saturday evening.
Again, I know going to AA meetings makes sense but I’m curious if others here were able to find alternatives to going to AA meetings on weekends.
