It is possible to still have a nightlife even though you are sober. When the sun goes down and the night sky begins to settle in you may start to wonder, though, what in the world could you possibly do now that you’re clean and sober?
We have 10 ideas right here for you to help bring some excitement to your sober nightlife.
You may find that you are a terrific bowler without drugs and alcohol messing up your game.
2. Coffee & dessert with friends
Did someone say cheesecake and a latte under the stars? Count me in!
3. Throw a dinner party
Invite your closest sober friends over for a fun-filled night of food, games, and music at your house.
4. Live music
Check www.livenation.com to see the upcoming events and live shows that are coming to a venue near you and invite some of your sober friends to join you.
5. Movie night
Either go out to see a movie or enjoy a night in with your friends and family, or that special someone in your life.
This website provides a great way to help you connect with people in your area who share the same interests as you. There are also several (non-12 Step) sober groups and activities you can join in on.
7. Take dance lessons
Get your groove on at a local dance studio! Drag one of your friends or romantic partner to join you.
8. Attend a fitness class
Most gyms hold classes in the evening so check their schedule and pick a class that best interests you and GO! Grab a smoothie with a pal after class.
9. Play a game of cards with friends
Put a stack of cards in front of me and I will have you locked into a game of Swedish Rummy in no time. There are so many fun card games you can play with your sober friends, and hey you might even win a few games thanks to a toxic-free mind that is no longer polluted with drugs and alcohol!
10. Miniature golf
Remember how much fun you used to have to play miniature golf as a kid? Well, you can relive those fun times by getting a couple of your sober buddies together and putt-putting the night away.
