Sober St. Patty’s Day
First it is important to note that St. Patrick’s day is a time to honor the roots of Irish religious beliefs, feast with loved ones and honor the memory of a guy who was neither a canonized saint nor really named Patrick. The whole green beer, kegs and eggs, kiss me I’m Irish thing came later.
For those in recovery, this may provide some inspiration when navigating the more modern iterations of the holiday: day drinking and overdrinking.
Here are three things you can do today that have nothing to do with green beer, bars or being a drunken hooligan.
Whatever you do – remember that this is just another day! You can still eat and be merry but if you find yourself feeling antsy call a friend, get to a meeting, or keep busy by trying your hand at a new recipe.
