The road to sobriety can be challenging. Certain situations can trigger a need to drink, and lead to a dangerous relapse. One of the many scenarios where temptation can arise is in a party/ social environment. However, you shouldn’t have to compromise your social life to achieve a sober lifestyle. Here are a few tips for hosting a sober, alcohol-free party. For more information on sober living in NJ, contact us today.

Let Your Guests Be Aware

Whether you are inviting your friends via text or sending a more formal invite in the mail, make sure it’s made clear that this is a SOBER party. This will prepare your guests ahead of time, and prevent them from bringing alcohol.

Schedule the Party Early in the Day

Most social gatherings that involve drinking occur during the evenings and on weekends. Scheduling your party earlier in the day will switch drinking patterns for most, which hopefully will reduce triggers and cravings.

Pick a Different Environment

Choose an environment that will allow you to do activities other than drinking. If your party takes place at a beach or a park, your guests can be entertained by a game of catch, swimming, or other outdoor activities.
