I can identify with that, Tammy. I didn't set out to find things to fill open time slots that used to be wasted by drinking and being drunk, they just appeared. Not all at once either, but the opportunities presented themselves at the perfect time in my recovery for me. I now have two or three committed activities that contribute variously to my physical, mental and financial health that take about 20 hours a week.

It took a while, but I got my life back. It helped to know that since I could quit drinking, I could probably achieve just about anything I put my mind to. And you are right, our options are limited only by our imagination.
