I'm not trying to be rude by asking that, so please don't take offense. I am just curious. I am in very early sobriety and often find myself wondering how to fill in the gaps of time during which I used to drink. Although my drinking was out of control and I knew it needed to stop, I still feel that drinking made life more fun. I'm one of those people that feels I DESERVE to drink - I work full time, take care of a two year old, a husband and a slew of pets, do all the housework, etc. Much of the time spent with my two year old is very rewarding, but can also be very tiring. Most of my life is all work and no play. My husband and I are just able to make ends meet, so we don't have money for hobbies or outings. When I came across that extra $12 and some change, I always figured a bottle of wine was a minor indulgence that would alleviate some of my stress and keep me going. It's probably a normal feeling in early sobriety, but I feel now like life is all work and no play, and to be honest I am feeling a bit resentful. So I guess my question is, how do you enjoy life sober when everyday life isn't necessarily enjoyable?
