Hey guys, got an offer from a niche consulting firm with a great reputation. Their pay is lower in comparison to market but is currently higher than mine. Would it be appropriate to ask them for future Green Card sponsorship / include it as part of the offer letter (obviously, upon meeting satisfaction requirements). Need your advice on negotiating here. BTW, I’m from the UK.

SC brings up another point, do you let your team and supervisors know you are in recovery? I have always lived by the adage I may be the only Big Book anyone sees, so I always let my co-workers and management know I'm in recovery. I'm also a DCM so it helps book time off to go to Area Assemblies.

4 years sober today. So much to reflect on, not least of which how important it is to “get comfortable getting uncomfortable”. In my experience, it’s truly the only way forward.

Heartbroken - found out yesterday that someone very close to me in my family who has been clean for 10+ years (addicted to coke and alcohol, used it as a crutch for sexuality issues), relapsed recently and has started casually drinking again. I am the only one who knows this, and if it gets around, it will mess everything up for him. At a loss about what I can do to help, but also want to communicate to him that I think it’s a very bad idea that he start drinking again. I think the main reason he has started drinking again is because he is a single gay man in his 50s who wants companionship. Advice and support is appreciated.

I’ve got more than three years sober but really struggling with emotional sobriety lately. Coping with control issues no longer in charge just freelancing and fear of the future or lack of control. Find myself disappointed so much about the work and even a lot of the working relationships. I know I’m in a pivot and a changing environment. I want to show up and live the principals of AA and the St Francis prayer. I could really use someone (continued in comments)
