In recovery, our ideas of fun change.
Basic Text, p. 107
In retrospect, many of us realize that when we used, our ideas of fun were rather bizarre. Some of us would get dressed up and head for the local club. We would dance, drink, and do drugs until the sun rose. On more than one occasion, gun battles broke out. What we then called fun, we now call insanity.
Today, our notion of fun has changed. Fun to us today is a walk along the ocean, watching the dolphins frolic as the sun sets behind them. Fun is going to an NA picnic, or attending the comedy show at an NA convention. Fun is getting dressed up to go to the banquet and not worrying about any gun battles breaking out over who did what to whom.
Through the grace of a Higher Power and the Fellowship of Narcotics Anonymous, our ideas of fun have changed radically. Today when we are up to see the sun rise, its usually because we went to bed early the night before, not because we left a club at six in the morning, eyes bleary from a night of drug use. And if thats all we have received from Narcotics Anonymous, that would be enough.
Just for today: I will have fun in my recovery!

I have a blast. I love to dance and go to every NA/AA sponsored dance I can go to. Kids are allowed at our area's NA dances so it becomes a family affair. I think I dance very good (to hear me tell it) LOL.
I love music....I wish I could play an instrument. I bought a quitar because I still have a dream of playing in a rock band. I have to get partials because of my lack of dental care when I was tweaking and when my dentist gave me the mirror to look at myself all I could see was the shining metal from the partials...My dentist asked what was wrong and I said...Man there goes my close up singing with the the microphone in my hand.....I crack myself up.
