Grace for yourself. Don’t wallow. Keep working the steps and accept there are situations where you fall backwards. You get up and start again.


Manager then cry. Cry, lean into your emotions about it. Feel them and use them to realize you need to make a change. What are you avoiding that is allowing this to be an addiction

You must get to the root cause of why you do what you do. If you don’t understand why you do what you do, you will keep on doing the same thing over and over again to fulfill a biochemical addiction to those feelings. The basis of your addiction can be found in childhood trauma. Your are emotionally addicted to a set of feelings. Understanding the cause and effect relationship is essential.

Thank you.

Anyone else into findom?

I am, and I found out tonight (through my dom) that I’ve sent him well over $30k in the last 5 years or so. He also has sole access to my bank account. And, I’ve been serving for a lot longer than that, and not to just him. And tonight, I got a little drunk and sent a couple thousand. I’ve known this guy for a decade, so don’t really worry that it’s a scam, but it seems unsustainable, especially since I’m in a relationship.

Thoughts? How can I quit?

I had a background check when I was hired years ago. I told my supervisor at the time that it would not have great results. We have had a lot of management turnover since then. I'm curious if anyone has access to the records now? Does anyone know if that info is kept in my HR file somewhere? Also who is able to view it?


I’m 9 months into sobriety and it’s been a great transformation. However , the last few months a feeling of loneliness and disconnect has set in with me with my significant other. I couldn’t have hoped to have someone as supportive as she is/ was and through all my bs through my addiction so I’m incredibly grateful. I'm pretty isolated from other people so it’s not like there’s anyone else - but this feeling of isolation is new. I feel stuck, am i crazy or ungrateful or ???


I think I reached my low. I was at a family gathering and was having fun but started taking shots. Needed help into the cab. Vomited at the venue. I don’t want to get like that again. Do I need to go completely cold turkey? Set a limit?


Please provide some advice if you have any!

I’m still a newbie at 2-weeks sober but man this is great! I’m not sure what kind of alcoholic I was (“high functioning”?) but I see even the mundane )”(organizing my place, cooking etc) in a different light now. Thankful I woke up when I did.


2 weeks no vape babyyy


After 9 years of being sober, my boyfriend just told me yesterday that he relapsed and started drinking again. I knew something was horribly wrong because for the past few months, he was aggressive, constantly calling me names, and acting manic (and weirdly, racist). I’m glad he has finally come clean but I don’t feel emotionally safe around him. Am I a horrible person for encouraging him to focus on his recovery but keeping his distance from me? We’ve only been together for 2 years.


Does anyone struggle with overeating/binge eating? I’ve realized I’ve been coping with food which has led to gaining a bunch of weight. I know I’m eating more than what my body needs nutritionally, but in the moment I can convince myself that I haven’t eaten enough and NEED it :( I end up feeling so physically uncomfortable from how much I’ve eaten it’s hard to sleep. I live alone, but when I’m with friends I sneak to the bathroom to eat.


13 years, 3months and 21 days! Its not been easy, but definately can be accomplished! Hard work, GOD a a desire to change, and not in that order!


My spouse and I met at a rave 7 years ago. At the time we were dabbling in various recreational drugs (acid, mushrooms, weed, k, molly, alcohol etc), but over the years we've slowly cut back drug use.

I've always been v connected to the rave scene, and before I ever tried drugs I would attend events sober. These days, w my career and where I'm at in life, I'm back to going sober.

2months ago, he decided to white knuckle sobriety (except alcohol 🙄) and has become v judgemental of ravers contd


Picking up my 30-day chip tonight!


Y'all know about this?? Mark your calendars for next year 🗓♥️

Just feeling much better after a couple of weeks of some very heavy drinking. Felt like shit. Tired of it. Reached out to a really good counselor. Feeling good about all of it. However, I know I will get cravings again now that I’m feeling better. Has anyone had any luck with naltrexone to help mitigate drinking/overdoing it. I’m an all or nothing type of binge drinker.


I am 10 months sober today. I am very grateful to be part of this family.


I’ve been sober about 14 months, and now with things opening up more I’ve been going out to dinner, concerts etc with friends. I’ve been finding it hard to have fun, or not get restless while out. I think a large part of this is maybe I find the company around me boring? and they’re also all drinking. Maybe I just needed to write that out and vent to say, I’m bored! Maybe saying that out loud will help me get out of my comfort zone to find new activities that change my outlook.


I’ve reached the conclusion that I have a drinking problem I need to address. Based on my present circumstances, I believe a residential program is the right approach. I’ve identified a few potential programs & am scheduling conversations this weekend to see which is the right fit. For STD, I need a doctor to provide a letter. I haven’t been to a psych in a while since my PCP prescribes my Zoloft. Should I make an appointment with him to get the letter? Any insights are greatly appreciated.


Relapsing really bad, scared I’m going to die this time and leave my two young children without a mother. I’m really out of control and need serious help
