So, for you vets, how important is it to do things that are outside of recovery, especially since I'll only have 30 days tomorrow? We decided that we're going to hang out for a little bit tomorrow before we hit a meeting because we don't want it to be all gloom and doom, and I really think like, just hanging out like normal people instead of hitting a meeting and going home would really do the trick.
This sounds like a good plan.
Last weekend, my friend (also recovering) and I played a little pool and ran some errands (just like normal people) BEFORE going to an AA meeting and when the day was all said and done, I felt that we both had a really productive day as friends and as people in recovery.
