Sober Activities for COVID Lockdowns

Nov 18, 2022 | Rehab

COVID-19 has greatly affected our lifestyles. All of us were forced to stay in our homes and that limited our activities. Sadly, these lockdowns also pushed us more towards alcohol, drugs, and addiction. With many spare hours and very few things to do, many of us resorted to drinking. 

This led to a rise in the number of cases of addiction. Fortunately, the situation hasn’t slipped out of our hands yet. We can still choose to do sober and COVID-friendly activities. 

Sober Activities for Lockdowns 

COVID lockdowns are boring with minimal things to do. However, you can always find some interesting activities that don’t include alcohol. A few of those activities are listed below: 

  1. Participate in or host a virtual arts and crafts night 
  2. Become a member of a book club 
  3. Learn to knit 
  4. Learn to cook 
  5. Bake a cake and share it with your neighbor 
  6. Do a social media detox and get to know yourself better 
  7. Record your dancing videos

  9. Take a long, refreshing, and relaxing bath 

These are just a few suggestions. You can always come up with your creative ideas to enjoy lockdown without alcohol. 

How to Remain Sober During Lockdown?

If you have recently recovered before COVID lockdowns, then it must be difficult to stay indoors and divert yourselves from alcohol. Thus, here are some ideas for you to maintain your sobriety and engage in sober activities:
