With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, now is the time to start getting prepared regarding how to fiesta without having to give up your sobriety in the process.
Along with so many other holidays, alcohol is one of the main components when it comes to celebrating Cinco de Mayo; however, this year marks the first of many Cinco de Sober celebrations to come. For those freshly out of a Florida Drug Detox, the idea of having to celebrate a holiday commonly associated with an overwhelming amount of drinking memories can be intimidating. Luckily, with the help of The Haven Detox, staying sober through a holiday such as Cinco de Mayo has never been easier!
Avoid Triggers. Remember everything that you learned during your stay at The Haven Detox and use it to fight against any triggers. Chances are, you know what will make you want to relapse and who are bad influences, so staying away from them will make having a sober Cinco de Mayo much easier.
Try Something New. Sure, Cinco de Mayo is known as a drinking holiday – but that doesn’t mean you can’t get creative! Make this the year you start a new tradition by throwing a Cinco de Sober party for you and all your friends you meet in recovery in South Florida.
Disclaimer: chances are you will need to expand to a larger venue next year once word gets out about how much fun everyone had.
