This week in the Not So Secretly Sober Club, we discussed summer & sobriety. It can be challenging to think of sober activities for summer evenings and lots of sober people I know find summer triggering. The nights seem longer, the weather is warm and often the beer garden can feel like it's calling our name.
The sheer amount of time that I had on my hands when I first stopped drinking blew my mind! In both a positive and negative way. It gave me time to sit and reflect on all of the time I'd wasted drinking and being hungover. I worried about how I would fill all of this newly acquired time without drinking.
In the beginning, I threw myself into going to sober events, writing about my sober experiences, telling every single person I met that I was sober, and going to theatre shows, poetry readings, and gigs.
I spent a lot of time listening to audiobooks, my new favourite genre being quit lit and personal development.
But I didn't want this list to be completely about me and my experiences! We're all different so I thought I'd share what we came up with in the Not So Secretly Sober Club and the amazing suggestions from our wonderful followers on Instagram!
Here's what everyone came up with together - sober activities for summer evenings:
