Hi. So grateful for this bowl! I’m 16 months sober. Fairly new to ACN just curious what types of challenges you’ve faced and how you’ve overcome them?

So glad you’re here! I think for me, the biggest challenge I was met with was handling my emotions and difficult situations sober. But, it can be done and I’m much happier now than ever before. Even being sober through hard times is far better than drinking through them!

Congrats on 16 months! For me, now that I recognize alcohol as an addiction and disease, and since I know my thinking is broken, I have to be careful to not let myself view a drink as a grenade that will end my stress and misery from this job.

My father passed away a few years ago and my mom is actively looking for another partner now. I am open to her finding someone but she is going about it in a dangerous way.

I’m now 1 month sober after spending 2 weeks in rehab. Before that I was drinking every day, work was suffering - family life was suffering. I am going through a divorce right now which hasn’t helped.

I’m at my lowest point in my drinking career. I have pints of cheap vodka stashed on multiple floors of my place to hide from my SO. I’ll claim to need to work late but just drink in my home office. I wasn’t this bad on the road. She did a work out with her trainer yesterday and I walked to the park to drink cheap beer on a bench by myself. I’m up for promotion this year (am terrified of getting it) and have no idea how I’ll balance my alcoholism with added responsibility

My boyfriend of a year got a DUI this weekend and has had drinking problems in the past. He fully admits he is an alcoholic, and will do therapy/go to AA moving forward. My therapist suggested I be a “computer program running in the background” and essentially leave him to allow him to work on himself. This is obviously a really hard decision, and I feel like I should listen to my therapist, but my heart is pulling me the other way. Anyone else been through something similar or have advice?

I have no family and my only friends are bar flies. (Cunning, baffling, powerful).

I’m sober curious. I’m also about to help a new non-alcoholic spirit company with their launch.
I have a question for people in recovery. If a brand were to contend that sobriety is a spectrum, or allow for that to a least be part of the conversation, how does that make you feel? Are other brands doing a good job of being inclusive of people who are truly sober?
(I get that NA drinks / spirits can be triggering for people in recovery)
Thank you.

After 3 years, the therapist disclosed that she’s in the program. I had wondered often about the source of her knowledge of the steps. Still I would’ve preferred her to remain anonymous in this regard. Now I keep wondering about whether I’ll see her at a meeting and what her story is. So odd. So self centered of me.

I joined a new team and have noticed something off with my Director over the last months (slurring speech, no show to calls or even full days of work). I finally asked a colleague about it today because I’m concerned about my Director. She confirmed that she’s noticed the same over the last few years, but no one ever says anything. In confidence she told me she can often smell alcohol. How can I help? I feel helpless. I’ve already lost someone to addiction and I can’t ignore this. Any advice?

If I want to go to an AA meeting do I just show up? What happens my first time? Do I have to quit drinking before I go to one/ be committed to quitting before going? How many people are at these? Is there a time/day of week that is best to go? How often do people in AA have to go to meetings? Does it cost anything once you join? I just can’t shake the feeling that my luck is going to run out. Not a daily drinker, but blackout when I do. Thx.
