It is reported that in 2012, 111.3 MILLION people watched the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots!
Superbowl Sunday 2013 is associated with alcohol and drinking, from parties to family gatherings, to the commercials!
This can put football fans that are also recovering alcoholics in a delicate position.
We here at Realization Center want you to remember that you are SOBER people. Whoever wins (Marilyn is rooting for the Ravens!) or loses will have no effect on you, but if you pick up and drink – it will affect you in so many ways. You have worked so hard for your sobriety, don’t pick up!
If you do go to a Super Bowl party, have an exit plan.
The number one rule we can give is to hang out with people who respect your sobriety.
You can also:
1. Go to a meeting (please go to the AA website http://www.nyintergroup.org/meetinglist/ for a complete and up to date meeting list.)
2. Call your sponsor
3. If you are a client and need to talk to a counselor, please call us. Our 24 hour helpline is here to help you!
