Addiction & Sobriety
My husband is 38 and can’t drink without getting drunk. Is this alcoholism or just immaturity? He never craves alcohol but when he drinks he doesn’t stop & tells people ‘yea I have a drinking issue’
2 months sober from adderal & gave in and took some and I feel like shit, I won’t be able to sleep & I just wanna take more when the high wears off and I’m rambling & feel like I messed everything up
Is anyone a fan of the psychologist Carl Jung here? Currently reading his letters to Bill W, apparently the entire AA philosophy was based on his work.
What does everyone do for support while traveling? 12 Step meetings aren’t always easily available in some locales or time slots. How do you stay grounded, focused, and centered?
Does anyone have experience going to AA while still using Plant assisted therapy such as Kratom and medical cannabis. I don’t wanna lie but I want to be accepted as there are only a few meetings here.
Feeling so low this January. I’ve been sober many years and not worried about my sobriety specifically but I’m feeling very isolated and lonely. All I can see is what I’m not doing well. 😕

Just finished day one of my sobriety. I'm practically climbing the walls because I want a joint. Bored and cant sleep. I hope I dont relapse. I need to stay clean.
What are some fun sober activities or hobbies? Meaning where it's hard or impossible to drink while doing the activity? Hiking, bike riding, shooting guns are some that come to mind. What else?
7 days since my last drink today. I know it's not much ... But 1 day at a time right? Hope you're all staying strong!
What made you decide to go to AA? I drink a lot every day. My career, physical health, and relationships are good. I’m an addict, but is addiction by itself a reason to go to AA? What am I missing?
I know that I drink too much and that it has become a problem. The challenge for me is that nothing insane or devastatingly life-changing has has happened yet because of it. (Con’t)
Friendly reminder: You are not in this alone. Reach out to one of us. Go to a meeting. Talk to your support group. I know the holidays can be rough.
