Things to do to keep your mind off from using!?

What do y’all do to keep your mind off from using???

Driving to places iv never been to within a reasonable distance. Going to meetings. Helping other struggling alcoholics. Finding new music. Playing video games. Playing Texas Holden online for play money (usually enter 100 person tournaments on pokerstars.) Calling my sponsor, drinking lots of tea.


Meetings! Talking to my sponsor and chatting with everyone here. :sunny: :grinning:
