Tips to Be Social Without Alcohol

How can you be social without alcohol?

You can be social without alcohol and still have as much fun, or even more with a few easy tips. It helps to be prepared before you decide to meet up with friends or go on a date. When you’re in recovery the more tools you have in your tool kit will set you up with success.

Volunteer to be social without alcohol

Volunteer work is a great way to be social without alcohol. It also helps the community, your self-esteem and you may even make a new friend or two. When you have more friends that you meet in a non-alcoholic setting, the easier it is to prevent returning to one. In addition to that, you’ll connect with people that care about the same causes you do.

Attend meetings

Many people underestimate the power of support groups. Not only are they a place to talk and share experiences, but they’re a place to be social without alcohol. You’re surrounded by others with similar values and understand what you’re going through.

Create your own signature beverage

Do you have a friend or family member that everyone just knows their drink? Maybe you have an uncle that always orders iced tea or an aunt that seems to only drink Diet Coke. What’s yours? Figure out your go-to non-alcoholic beverage. This helps avoid temptation but also becomes a habit and you rely less on willpower.
