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.

Curious to hear how this group deals with burnout as our brains are very different than non-alcoholics
Where you all located? I'll start: seattle!
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.
Sending strength to you all 🖤
I’ve been battling my diseased thinking over the course of a 16 month job search. I have moments of clarity where I truly believe in myself but more times I am my worst critic.
Does anyone know of a good A.A. mtg in SF? New to the program and in treatment now, looking to hop into some zooms this weekend and next week to find a good one/few. Thanks in advance
A beloved member of my AA community passed away sober this week after a long battle with cancer. About a month ago he shared about how he knew his end was near and he was at complete peace.
AA meetings on or near campus?
I feel so badly for active alcoholics today. So grateful I’m not “in my cups”. Just a reminder that there are a ton of speaker tapes on Spotify! Stay in touch, people.
I relapsed and took Adderall again and I’m right back where I started and already for more to keep the binge going and I know I need help but idk if I can stop and what happens if I’m not productive without it? Idk like I feel like everything is going so fast ya know?
Status check - how's everyone doing? This group means so much to me. Should we do a weekly meeting here to help each other on a virtual basis?
the deal I made myself was- If I ever wake up in the morning and regret not drinking the night before, I can reconsider sobriety.
Not sober currently. But think about it.
What happened to all your mates when you stopped? Did they dump you (because you make them feel guilty for drinking)? And what if your wife drinks too?
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'm curious, has anyone here seen this: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/my-name-david-flink-im-leader-tech-alcoholic-david-flink and read the comments? Thoughts?
Question: Friend is starting to seek treatment, should he tell HR that he is getting treatment or keep it quiet. May want to go to inpatient at some point Trying to be supportive and give good advice.
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)
Anyone been open with their superiors about sobriety/recovery? Curious to hear about your experiences, both positive and negative.
