I have found that incorporating a holistic approach to my addiction issues very helpful. Posting a helpful website to hopefully help others.
Does anyone have any advice for supporting and coping with someone going through withdrawal? My husband is trying to quit his weed addiction and he has been irritable and mean since he quit. His mood is erratic and he is constantly annoyed w me. I don't even know how to bring this up without setting him off. Just feel like I'm walking on eggshells and I'm emotionally exhausted at this point. Is there anything I can do to help him? Is there anything I can do to help myself cope?
Stopped drinking a year ago after a particularly rough period. Lately I’ve been having thoughts and considerations around starting again. I think my friend circle has changed a lot so I wouldn’t fall into that crazy party lifestyle. Has anyone stopped then started again successfully? I never drunk THAT much but it was impacting my life (sending stupid messages I shouldn’t have been sending) and getting blackout occasionally. I do think it was having a negative impact on my life
Friendly reminder: You are not in this alone. Reach out to one of us. Go to a meeting. Talk to your support group. I know the holidays can be rough.
Ex wife gets married tomorrow. Didn’t think it was bothering me but I dropped my kids off at her house for the rehearsal and I’m struggling to keep distracted. I know having a drink only destroys the trust I’ve rebuilt, but I don’t want to feel like this.
New to the app. Found this group. Have over 10 years of continuous sobriety working the 12 Steps of AA. If you’re struggling or want to know more, my hand is (virtually) reaching out to you.
Has anyone experienced / researched the “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” / split personality aspect of addiction? TIA!
Has anyone else felt like living by yourself, isolated has driven them crazy? New city, no family, no friends. I understand that’s life and I’ll get through it but just wanted to express that
Not addicted but want to be sober, what do you guys do on weekends? All my friends go out and drink, how do you avoid loneliness? How'd you find new friends and how long did it take if you did?
If you are new here or really wanting to get sober just take each day as it comes. One day at a time, then…in time you look back and say, holy crap I’m doing it! The beginning is hard but it gets easier. Remember that the Dalai Lama stated “ There are only two days we can do nothing about. One is yesterday and the other is tomorrow….”.
I’ve got about 8.5 years and still struggle with dealing with friends who get drunk and are complete assholes. I know I should have empathy but I just want to kick their ass. What I should do is Thank God (agnostic) I am sober today. If I was drinking I would have kicked his ass, faced the consequences, made amends, and lost friend(s).
I hit my 6-month mark tomorrow. I’d be lying if I said it was easy the last few weeks, work has really stressed me out recently but I keep reminding myself how much better things have gotten and go do something. I’ve found restoring old tools has been a great way to keep myself busy. Thank you all for the support, keep coming back!
I’ve been sober for a few months and there are a few cocktail parties coming up at work. It’s “encouraged” to attend. Any advice? I have been to a couple backyard parties over the summer where I was around alcohol but I was mostly among friends. This is going to be different. Anyone else ever have a situation like this? Any advice is appreciated.
Has anyone tried using Kratom to help with an addiction to opiates? Does Kratom itself get addictive if you start using it for a while?
Does anyone else have strong alcohol cravings / triggers in Airports, Airplanes, Hotels/hotel bars, travel in general? I can be fine at home but then go on a bender starring the minute I enter an airport all the way through returning home.
Question. How many people here actively voice they are in recovery at work events to explain why they don’t drink as opposed to just declining the drink? Why or why not?

Hi PwC, thanks for joining! Does “AH” = Alcoholic Husband? I haven’t heard that specific acronym before.
That’s great that you’re going to Al-Anon, and honestly I can’t think of a better option. I’m a recovering alcoholic, and I’m always told “look for the similarities, not the differences.” I felt very different when I first came to AA, but slowly I realized that although the other people in the room might look different and have vastly different lives, I felt exactly how they felt. I’ve also been to a handful of Al-Anon meetings and know that they also carry a powerful message.
I would see if the Al-Anon website has a list of public zooms, and perhaps you can check out several options and one will “click” for you. The beauty of zoom is you can listen in to a meeting anywhere in the world.
Finally, it might be eye opening if you were to get a copy of the AA Big Book and read through it. It might give some perspective on what your husband is going through, and it has some amazing dialogue around the idea of a Higher Power. I came into AA as an agnostic *at best*, and through the steps I had the spiritual awakening that the book talks about. I never wanted AA and I certainly didn’t want a Higher Power, and now 2.5+ years into sobriety I’ve come to realize that those two things are the most important things in my life.
Thanks for your response and congrats for your 2.5+ years! It’s definitely a huge achievement! All the best.
I have some great al-Anon meetings in Chicago! DM me and I’ll send you the links.
