Living your best life sober and beachside!

https://thepalmsrecovery.com/

Long before the beach was a theater of bodies stuffed into tiny suits, exposing as much skin as possible to the sun, beach-going was often a strictly medical undertaking. For centuries we looked to the sand and surf as a fully-stocked pharmacy. But first, we had to get over our fear of the sea. She’s a mysterious beast! We need beach therapy!

The Palms Recovery – Sober Living at the beach! When people think of the beach, they often think of relaxing and fun summer vacations, hungry seagulls, and refreshing waves. For some, the ocean isn’t the only thing that’s refreshing. Despite it being illegal at many beaches, people often drink alcohol on the beach. What do you do if you’ve recently decided to cut alcohol out of your life? Should you avoid the beach entirely? We’ve gotten over our fear of the ocean, so do we fear temptation?

Luckily, there are plenty of other activities you can enjoy at the beach that don’t involve alcohol or drugs just fun in the sun! Here are some ideas for sober activities on the beach.

Get Active

For individuals who enjoy being physically active, there are plenty of fun ways to enjoy the beach without alcohol! Bringing a Frisbee or football to the beach is a great way to pass the time with friends. Or maybe you’re spending the day with enough people to start up a volleyball game. If you want to get off the sand and into the water, boogie boarding and skim boarding are also fun ways to pass the time. No fear, just sober living fun!

Enjoy Some Relaxation Time

If you prefer a more laid-back beach experience, there are many relaxing activities you can enjoy at the beach that don’t involve alcohol or drugs! Bring a book, magazine, or newspaper and catch up on the reading you haven’t had time to do. You might decide to listen to some music, a podcast, or an audiobook. Taking a walk along the beach and collecting seashells can also be a relaxing way to spend your time at the beach.

If you’ve recently decided to cut alcohol out of your life, you don’t necessarily have to cut out the beach as well. Whether you prefer to be active at the beach or enjoy spending your time at the shore relaxing, there are plenty of activities you can enjoy that don’t involve drinking alcohol or drugs. So, pack up your Frisbee, bring your books, and lather on your sunscreen – it’s time to hit the beach!

Confidence dating and enjoying life Sober Sexy

A mindful sober subculture is emerging, indicating that we’re seeking out deeper, more meaningful connections to others. The days of meeting randoms at bars to forget their name the next day to detox, jumpstart an exercise program, or sober up can often mean one of two things: social hibernation or momentary relapse. The high on drugs or booze culture is beginning to fall by the wayside, with a wide range of sober, mindful, after-work activities—making happy hour a little more meaningful, and the morning after a lot happier. Not everyone is a drinker by any means, and this social shift is welcome news, indicating that we’re striving to deepen (and actually remember) our tangible connections with others.

While the romanticized idea of showing up at that birthday party with your healthy green smoothie in hand because you’re cleansing seems doable, when put into practice it might sometimes feel easier just to stay home. Life is short and just because your sober now, you can still enjoy all life’s got to offer! Daytime fun in the sun, to Nightlife! 

You’ve got a plethora of options!

Depending on where you reside, the season of course, and what you’d like to do and what you’re looking for in a new mate, friends, or new like-minded hobby oriented associates.

Take a class

Once I got out of the fog of my first few weeks of sobriety, I had a bit of an identity crisis of what my hobbies were and what I liked to do for fun. Sobriety is a great opportunity to rediscover yourself and take a class in something you’ve always wanted to try — and maybe meet someone in the process.

Wingman Needed

Lean on your friends and family. Send an email to your support network and let them know you’re looking to date and open to meeting new people. If you can avoid being too picky, include a few sentences about some qualities or types of people you’re looking for. And if you end up meeting someone through a friend or family member, don’t be a flake and ruin the relationship for your loved one. I’m getting very close to putting up my own ad on my Instagram stories… if I’m not my biggest PR advocate, who is?

A substance abuse problem changes the way a person looks at the world, and treatment does much the same thing. A lot can change due to drug and alcohol addiction, and successful rehabilitation entails rebuilding a person’s life. When it comes to relationships, the realities and rules of abstinence after addiction become all the starker. Whether as a client or a companion, a guide to sober dating is very important in understanding how matters of the heart change.

Dating in Recovery

Many treatment programs discourage their members (either actively or otherwise) from pursuing romantic or sexual relationships in the aftermath of their recovery.

Levels of Treatment

 

Sober Living

Our Sober living offers a proven way to recover from addiction with a slow and gradual transition back into daily life at a pace each individual can learn to grow comfortable with.

The Palms Recovery’s goal is to provide comfortable, quality living in surroundings conducive to abstinence, recovery, and personal growth. We create and maintain a sober atmosphere that supports confidence, self-worth, and the motivation necessary for a healthy return to conventional living and mainstream society. Our sober living home is a great option to alleviate any concerns you may have about going from such a monitored environment right back into daily life. There are many benefits to staying in a sober-living home, including attending meetings at a 12 step program, creating structure, accountability, and creating a sober fellowship. A big part of staying in a sober living home is creating positive friendships that help to reinforce the desire to abstain from drugs and alcohol. This support system allows residents to avoid the isolation that can sometimes come with returning home while in recovery.

Residents aren’t bound to the sober living home’s campus and can come and go as they please. This allows individuals in recovery to feel like they are easing back into normal life and can start going back to their daily tasks and responsibilities. Although sober living homes are less restrictive than inpatient facilities, they still have rules that residents must abide by, including curfews and group meeting attendance.
