Dealing with the Holidays


Updated February 08, 2014

Visitors to the About.com Alcoholism Forum were asked to share their personal experiences in maintaining sobriety during the holiday season. Their replies provide helpful tips for those who may be struggling to stay clean and sober through the temptations of the holidays.

Leni's Holiday Tip

I am having a gratitude dinner at my house for people who don't want to, can't, or do not have any family. I did this when I first got sober in the town I was in and now they have it in a hall!

Also volunteer work at clubs that have dinners is a good idea, or attending a dance or 24-hour meeting.
