I am 25 years old. Worked as a Tax consultant in International tax for a year. Later shifted to VAT and worked there for another year. Now I am thinking to join M&A. While one side I am glad that I am trying something new and having a diverse experience but again I feel I am becoming Jack of all and Master of None. Any advice is appreciated

Any tips on how to land Project Management roles without having to start from the bottom? I have over 4 years experience in People Ops/HR. Currently gathering necessary certifications and the likes
I have been dating this guy for almost 4 months now. Things have been going really well. But last night he told me that he’s been sexually involved with his step father in the past. This is really creeping me out. I thought these things only happened in p*rn. I don’t know what to do.
I interviewed recently at a big brand. I was cut after the 1st in-person round. As disappointing as it was, I asked recruiter for f/b. They actually replied w/honest f/b I can use going forward 😃

Possible to be sober as a new consultant? Feel constant pressure from other colleagues to drink and feel like it will be an uphill battle to climb the ranks sober. Can anyone share their story of getting/ being sober early in their career?
I’ve already had cervical cancer (last year) and have been cancer free. Now have a hormone replacement specialist I have to see annually. Yesterday was the visit and she randomly decided to do a breast exam and found a lump. Couldn’t get me in for a diagnostic mammogram until next week. Came home and relapsed - it was not a full-on bender but I drank. How do I not beat myself up and just get up and keep going? Alcohol is the WORST thing for any cancer esp breast cancer. WTF is wrong with me!?
Where are my Fellow Travelers in ACA?
Starting my sober journey today. Glad to have found this community. Honestly hopeful but also scared.
Was not gambling for 6 months and then blew up a few thousands last night. Fighting the urge not to go back.
66 members already! For those of you currently working a 12 step program, if you choose, share below your addiction and your length of sobriety. Perhaps that’ll get some good Q & As going
Have you ever slipped and accidentally identified as an alcoholic when doing team introductions?
My husband is addicted to alcohol.. For those who are sober/recovering, what worked for you?! What can I do to help him?!
I am approaching my 90 days, but the last two nights I have had dreams of using. Waking up anxious and having to reassure myself that it was just a dream. This weekend I was able to keep myself busy hanging out with my fiancé and friends, but I am concerned that the work week will be hard because I work from home by myself. I may ask my friend if I can work from his house, since he works from home too, and I can have someone to be around during the day. Any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed.
Starting on my journey to sobriety today from sex addiction. I’ve been clean from alcohol for several years but my therapist has pushed me to start attending AA meetings in addition to SAA meetings. I know I can’t overcome this alone.
I’m a Sr Manager and I was arrested for the first time in my life, and it was for DWI. I haven’t been convicted as it’s a long drawn out process, but curious how big of a deal this is when looking for consulting/IT/Program Management type jobs. Anyone with experience or stories getting hired with a DWI? I’m freaking out that I’m not going to be able to switch and find good 200/250k+ paying jobs now
Just wanted to post an update. 68 weeks ago I posted about my drinking problems. It was bad. It’s been 8 months now without a single drink. I still can’t believe it. I still miss drinking. I’ve sat with coworkers and watched them drink. It’s not nearly as fun, but I am so thankful each morning I can hold my head up high. Will I drink again? I only said I would quit for 60 days. Can I have a beer? Some wine? A fine bourbon? I sometimes crave it. I guess there is the answer! You can all do this!
Just did an export of my spending for the year to do a full breakdown. I spent almost $2k on liquor in the 6 months before I went into treatment:
That amount comes out to 40 handles, but it’s probably about 2x since this doesn’t include what I bought with cash or drank with others paying.
Im shocked. But most importantly I’m grateful to be sober today. Keep working it gang!
Another hangover - it’s just not worth it ! Wasting a beautiful Sunday. This madness has to stop !
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..
Does anyone have experience with ketamine therapy? My dad had been to inpatient treatment three times in the past 18 months and it hasn’t stuck. Vivitrol, anabuse, therapy, and AA haven’t worked either. A recovery specialist is pitching a ketamine journey as a hail mary since nothing else is working.
Folks that took medical leave for alcohol use treatment: What was your experience? Did you do inpatient detox? anyone skipped detox and go straight into an outpatient IOP? How was that? How long were you out on leave? How much notice did you give ur boss before the leave? Anyone quit/not go back?
I’m ready to get real treatment for my alcohol usage. Would love to benchmark my path against others in the group as I don’t trust my decision making ability right now.
