One of the best ways to stay busy and sober on the weekends is to find something you can do every weekend. Recreational sports teams, classes, activity groups, and volunteer opportunities that meet regularly can keep you busy and always offer you something to look forward to. Here are a few (in fact, two) things you can do this weekend that are fun, unique, and most importantly, won't jeopardize your recovery. Are you interested in running or biking? Track your progress toward a specific goal (10,000? Triathlon?) and it will motivate you to keep going.
One of the sober things that can be done on the weekend is to go see a movie. Watch a movie with friends, family, or even alone. A movie is great for distracting yourself if you're feeling the signs of a relapse and need something to distract you. Theaters are also a great way to eat while watching the latest movie.
