Can we have fun and enjoy life without chemicals in our system? This is a question that many people ask themselves and ask other people in sobriety. When we are using we think that we are having fun, have good friends, and enjoy life. That is all a lie that our mind or if you wish, the disease tells us. When we are using we are in jail. We have no freedom and all we know is how to drink and get high.
What happens after we get sober? We have to find other people and activities that we like without the use of altering our mind. So many people rely on the fellowship of AA/NA to find these people and these things to do sober. Many people have to find out what they like to do and then just go and do it. Stop thinking about it. Action, action, action is the word we hear so often.
