Rediscover Old Hobbies

  1. What were some of your favorite activities before you started doing drugs or drinking alcohol? You enjoyed these things before using, why not give them a shot again? Keep in mind that they may not sound like fun initially, but you may like them more as you get further into recovery. Can't think of anything? Start something new: art, reading, cooking, fitness, volunteering, writing, etc.

    I love your suggestion, @francisferrill. Keeping busy can really help make recovery easier, and hobbies are a great way to keep busy...and have fun, too!
