273 days: one day at a time. The ninth month was brutal, but good preparation for the holidays.

Also got to see someone celebrate 3 years today, so that was pretty cool.

Let’s keep going!

I’m sorry to hear you had a hard week. Stay strong! There are some good sobriety apps that I use every day.

One is Everything AA. It has different zoom AA meetings, and some are focused on newcomers.

Just don’t pick up the first drink. We got this!

Hello Everybody,

I just got mail that I have cleared technical and managerial round for big data developer position for Cognizant.

I have 6 yrs of exp in IT. Current CTC is 13.4 lpa

Now next round is HR round.

How much package should I ask for.

And also i have 90 days notice period, will they agree.

Please guide how to handle this HR Round.
will be a lot of help 🙏

I'm in the middle of a background check with Deloitte for a Project Delivery role. In the background check application I listed my previous employers - Cognizant/Teksystems etc but my resume only had the client names I worked at . Does this pose a problem if Deloitte HR compares my resume to the background check form ? Also my title within cognizant might have been an associate but my resume mentions the designation for the client. Is this a reason for concern? Will they ask me to justify it ?

My boyfriend of a year got a DUI this weekend and has had drinking problems in the past. He fully admits he is an alcoholic, and will do therapy/go to AA moving forward. My therapist suggested I be a “computer program running in the background” and essentially leave him to allow him to work on himself. This is obviously a really hard decision, and I feel like I should listen to my therapist, but my heart is pulling me the other way. Anyone else been through something similar or have advice?

Reached 6 months yesterday after finally realizing that if I allowed it to, alcohol could and would destroy my life and take away everything that I love. I was so afraid that I wouldn’t be able to have peace and comfort without it (insanity, right?). The past 6 months have been the happiest I have ever experienced. My everyday moments with my children are more meaningful, I lay next to my wife knowing she is proud of me and I wake up the next morning without shame. Gratitude!

My husband is an alcoholic and it’s getting worse with the holidays. He’s started every day drinking high alcohol-content IPAs as early as 8am. And he drinks them all day and all night like soda. He did AA when he was younger but is now vehemently against it. He is high-functioning. Has a PhD from MIT and works for a venture capitalist firm. I wondered how he gets through the day, but he started to come home early (mid-afternoon) and immediately open a beer while working. What should I do?

I’ve been sober a year now, and someone recently reached out to me about not drinking. When I suggested AA, he said ‘washed out people with nothing to lose’ wouldn’t comfort him. And that it was a ‘scared straight’ approach. I know his is a super harsh and ignorant opinion, but I just want to say if you hold it, it’s so far from the truth. Regardless of age, I’ve met some of the coolest unique people I’ve ever come across in aa, and I just felt sad people might hold that opinion of it in 2021

I struggled with binge drinking for many years after my mom passed away. I have been sober for the past 12 months. My husband has struggled with drinking for a long time as well, and just got done serving a 6 month sentence for his second DUI (on ankle bracelet at home for 4 months of the sentence). He got out of jail this week, and he has drank almost everyday since. He says he is different now, and can control himself (i.e, he won't be abusive or drive). Continued in comments..

It’s been 6 months since I’ve last had a cigarette. The process was pretty seem-less, with no cravings. However, this past has been especially difficult. My sister came to visit and she’s a smoker, she really needed a cigarette while driving, now since I caught whiff of the smoke, this past week has been my worst with cravings. Tips to cope, so far— I chew gum to help.

Unbeknownst to my friends or family, I just stopped by Pinkberry on my way to pick up dinner and ate a small chocolate hazelnut with candied pecans under an awning in the rain in the most harried and shameful way. Much like I used to slam two IPAs while waiting for a take out order. 😂

My first holiday season sober. This is really hard. Don't like having to turn down invites to events I know I would be tempted to have a drink at. Having to tell people not to gift me nice bottles (something I loved for years) because I'm sober, the whole thing honestly just makes me feel lonely and frustrated. Don't relish having to explain it to family at Christmas either. This sucks!

My son is about to go to college. His dad passed away when he was 8 and had an addiction to alcohol. I am so scared he is going to enter college life and become addicted to things after being curious. We have talked about it many times, but teenagers think they know everything and are invincible. I have told him there is a 50% chance he got the addiction gene and he needs to be careful. When I went to college I partied and tried it all, but I got lucky not getting addicted. Any advice?
