    Thank you for your kind words and thoughts. I believe they go out as a healing vibe.

    Yes the dynamics really change when in a relationship one stops drinking and makes big changes in their life. Also increase your choices. Alanon is good. Enjoy your sober Easter. Sobriety gives you back your power.

    I’m doing my Bachelor of Design majoring in Fashion. Keeps me up till 3am in the studio making patterns, prototyping and sewing. I’m in my final year and the bar is raised much much higher with what the lecturers want from us. I’ve been doing a nannying job caring for a girl with special needs. The hours have been 7 to 8.30am before school and on…[Read more]

    Had a conversation with my son by text. We’re catching up tomorrow.
    Son: might’ve drunk bit too much now, can i call you easter sunday tomorrow?
    Me: Sure. That would be gud. Hope your head is ok in the morning. Fuck I don’t miss hangovers. 😺 Got a night shift that starts about 11 pm. 😟
    Son: i’m young, got a powerade ready for the morning, i’m…[Read more]

    • You’re an amazing mom for handling the texts the way you did! Way to go! You show him a different way by being sober, and let him try out what works for him. 91 days is such a massive accomplishment! Well done. And it sounds like you found the perfect job to complete your studies. May I ask what you are studying right now? I am in a similar boat…[Read more]

    I’m resting instead of going into the studio today. Its time out for problem solving.

    Nice @WakingOwl

    Mine was similar except I get a can of alcohol free beer out of the fridge. Now It’s a rare thin but what ever helps to live alcohol free.

    Well said @Liberty

    Its your sobriey. Treasure it. I’m sorry to read of you Husband’s lack of support. I think others here are right. He’s feeling insecure because he has lost his drinking buddy. You’ll need to let him find his own way. It must feel hurtful but it says volumes about where he’s at and not a word about you. Concentrate on you and your family and get…[Read more]

    • @truthangel thank you! I am finally putting myself and my sobriety first and have no plans on slowing down. He is for sure insecure because he is seeing a huge spike in my self confidence and that makes him feel threatened. He has always been the more “dominate” person in the relationship.

    With that I’m going to find it. I love love love Brene Brown. Her work has helped towards the sober lady I am today. Shame is so destructive. It never worked for any of us. Yeah I get only a vulnerability hangover these days. Some people walk away when we share our vulnerability but what did they add to our lives that is authentic.

    Its wonderful your husband is supporting you. Your next date night will be one to look forward to and without the booze will be your best one yet.

  • truthangel posted a new activity comment 5 days ago

    There.s no stupid here including you. You have courage to do this. Its common to relapse a few times on this path. Your plan sounds good. You’ve got this. You may be feeling rather disappointed but you are not stupid. Please find compassion for yourself as you would for another person on this journey. Your resolve will only get stronger as long as…[Read more]

    Hi to all you courageous peeps here. I woke up with a blinding headache this morning that I didn’t earn. Ouch. Was like a hangover. A friend of mine got some bad news yesterday. Her father and brother were in a serious accident on thursday night and were found by rescue helicopter at 1am on friday morning and flown to hospital. They both have…[Read more]

    Hi. Hang out here when you need help or want to share. You are doing so well with your self care. Wishing you a peaceful and relaxing Easter. xx

    Hi, I’ve been in the same place. Almost lost it but you controlled your response. And most important of all…..you didn’t pick up the first drink. I get an allergic reaction to the term pink cloud. I makes feeling good sound wrong. Some days will be great and some not so good. Sometimes we have big feelings. Life without the booze to drown it all…[Read more]

    • You’re right. And thank you. In retrospect, yesterday’s big feelings were not proportional to the event. I was in counseling a few years ago and found it helpful – until she began to address my drinking – then all bets were off. But now I’m in a different place. One of my choosing. So I’m planning to go back. I realize I need to look at the…[Read more]

    @morgan, I’m with you. Starting a new part time job as a community support worker on Thursday. They also have extra afternoon shifts if I want them so I’m thinking of giving my notice for my early morning job as I am not on top of my game at 7am in the morning. I can get 2 extra shifts bringing me up to 32 hours which will enable me to complete my…[Read more]
