While there are multiple LGBTQ+ holidays celebrated throughout the year, the month of June is designated as Gay Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots of 1969. Although Pride is often synonymous with heavy drinking and partying, there are many ways to celebrate Pride and your sobriety without drugs or alcohol. Being in recovery doesn’t mean you have to miss the festivities, but you may have to redefine your relationship with Pride in order to celebrate safely. Dance Sober and Celebrate!!!
Use the (sober) buddy system
Bring a sober friend to the event with you – they don’t have to be sober or in recovery, they can just decide to be sober for a night with you. Even the most daunting tasks are easier when you’ve got someone by your side.
Check out a meeting
Before you head to Pride, attend an AA, harm-reduction or support group meeting and get some support from your sober family. If you can, check in with your sponsor. Spending some time to get re-grounded before facing the chaos of Pride weekend will help remind you that you’re not alone.
Look f*cking dope
When you look bomb dot com, you exude confidence. Spending a little more time priming pays off majorly. Plus, it always feels good to end the night looking as fly as you did when you started, and it feels even better to wake up the next morning fresh as a daisy and hangover free.
Life Begins Anew in Recovery often with friends. We need new social support. Often we can find our new life with the help of a recovery coach. Recovery coaches are “peers.” This means that they have “been there.” They have experienced the struggles, successes, joys, and hope of the recovery process. These individuals know how important it is to have a support system that includes emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual support. They know how important it is that friends and family know what the person in recovery is going through so that they can help in the process. Lucky for us, many of us love music! Some recovery coaches definitely dance and some of them will go to a Pride Dance.
