What we're about
We are just a loose band of sober adventurers in Northern NJ who look for opportunities to meet outside of the 12 Step rooms for fun and fellowship. Anyone may join us on any adventure listed, including friends and family who are up for some sober fun.
It all started in the Spring of 2014 when a few of us played hooky from work and went to Great Adventure for the day. Between the ride there, the entire day together waiting on lines, the belly gut laughs we had, and the long ride home, we learned so much about each other and bonded on a deeper level then we had just going to meetings together. We decided that we had to find a way to do things like this on a regular basis. It was good for our new non-drinking lifestlye. We bonded, had fun, and got to develop real friendships.
Fast forward to 2017, and we have done over 70 sober fun events. Typically 15-30 members come to each, but some get as many as 100. People bring their families and kids, and I love seeing parents and their kids reconnect, laugh and have fun , wrapped around a structured adventure to fall back on.
My girlfriend Cathy and I do most the planning, but we could never do it without the constant help from other members in our sober fun group. I am new to meet-up, but you can see all of our past adventures at www.soberfun.info.
We never charge anyone for what we do as organizers. Its all service to us and keeps us sober :) Hope to meet you soon.
