As the saying goes, "Variety is the spice of life." Drinking represents a fun social activity, but it's reasonable to want to try sober activities or adventures with your friends too.
Suggest Fun Activities
For ideas, think about some of your current hobbies -- or about what you enjoyed doing in the past. Can you turn some of your passions or interests into a group activity?
Ask your friends about what they like to do too. For example, you can all plan a day-trip to explore a nearby town, play a game of soccer or Frisbee in a park, or get the whole group together to try horseback riding.
Choose Not to Drink When With Your Friends
Some new activities can easily involve drinking -- such as bowling, hanging out at the beach, or getting together for a trivia night. If your friends want to drink but you don't, you can still have fun without alcohol.
If you struggle with pacing yourself or saying no to a drink when everyone else has one, consider talking to a healthcare provider about Naltrexone, a medication you can take before drinking to curb your cravings.
