About to send my old man to a structured in patient treatment program again. Lost count of how many times he’s gone at this point. Not looking for advice here, just want to tell you guys to stay strong because no drink is worth what he’s going through.

I recently started lifting, only once a week so far since I'm only at my work (and it's free gym) on Mondays. My friend said I might as well not lift at all since I'm not doing it 3 times a week. I get I'm not building a ton of muscle, if any at all, by only going once a week but it was really discouraging to hear that. I'm not in the habit of working out yet, so should I just stop lifting entirely if I'm not doing it 3x weekly?

It’s been really hard juggling work and family lately. I’m trying my best but am just feeling very stressed. Any advice or words of encouragement from others who’ve been though this hard time would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
