I applied for my DREAM job almost 2 weeks ago, but I haven’t received a response to my application. Should I send a follow up email? I want to stand out and be noticed by the company without coming off as desperate.
Guys, I'm here just to talk with people mostly like me. I live at Brazil and the unemployment here it is huge, economics going so crazy and every day going more down. I had an Depression Crises at the middle of 2018 and even made a lot of progress I still feel burned out. I think I will never be myself again and now I just accept remote jobs because stay in a office a day long make me want to die. Now I am looking for a job and sometimes I think will not handle more.

Made it this far, I’m on a roll! Thanks to all of you in the community for your support, I couldn’t do it without you!
For the newbies, the program is working for me, just wanted to share that.
Quit alcohol completely and sober for about 2 months…love it and and want to stay sober…but ended up getting hard seltzer couple days ago…thoughts?
Love this quote:
“The measure of my sobriety isn’t the distance between now and the last drink -- the measure of my sobriety is the distance between now and the next drink.”
My brother has an apparent drinking problem. He’s had two DWIs and stopped drinking after the 2nd. My SIL called tonight to tell me he has started drinking again and will pick up wine from a gas station and drive around and drink it in his car. He tried AA before but “didn’t like the crowd” there. If I had to guess I think he thinks he’s above them and has his shit together and doesn’t need help. All that to say I’m wondering if there are AA groups targeting professionals?
Always wise to read the daily reflections. What daily rituals does everyone have?
Has anyone been to a detox program or rehab/treatment centers? My husband needs help but unsure where to start. Weed/drinking addiction and he’s tried to stop but goes back to one or the other. He is in between jobs and has about 3 weeks off so need some insight on what I can do to help him.
Started back at work 6 weeks ago out of treatment. On the same project, same client. The work just seems so small, unimportant, and insignificant now that I have a new perspective and new priorities. It’s impacting my performance however. How do you keep work a priority or at least stay motivated? Does it get easier with more sober time?
I’m addicted as shit to weed and I can’t stop
4 years sober today after spending 5 years hopelessly addicted to opioids. So grateful for recovery communities for taking me in and showing me how to live. If you’re struggling, reach out to us! There’s a way out...but it’s not alone
I wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who shares in this group. It truly helps me stay sober. I am approaching 12 months sober but have been struggling lately. While I have not relapsed, I’ve been close. Normally, before I get out of bed, I write down my reason to stat sober for the day, but lately the reasons have been lousy at best. But reading about everyone’s struggles and successes has helped get me through this past month. So thank you all for the inspiration to keep going strong!
Every evening between about 5:00 and 8:00, I have this tremendous impulse to drink alcohol. And on the occasional morning, when I wake up having successfully resisted this urge, I feel great. Clear-headed, positive, and hungry.
FFFFFF I did it again. Saw the signs - said I could handle it - then blew the money gambling. I’ve been soooooo good wtf
I appreciate this group and the people in it!
I've been struggling with gambling for quite a few years now. The more money I make, the worse it gets. Even winning a big jackpot is not satisfying any more. It's to the point that I don't even know what I'm chasing. I'll go weeks without gambling and then have a huge relapse over a weekend. It's so bad now that it's thrown me into a deep, suicidal depression. I feel like I have no control and I don't want this to control me. Do meetings help?
Just wanted to post an update. 68 weeks ago I posted about my drinking problems. It was bad. It’s been 8 months now without a single drink. I still can’t believe it. I still miss drinking. I’ve sat with coworkers and watched them drink. It’s not nearly as fun, but I am so thankful each morning I can hold my head up high. Will I drink again? I only said I would quit for 60 days. Can I have a beer? Some wine? A fine bourbon? I sometimes crave it. I guess there is the answer! You can all do this!
Was 8 months free from casino / gambling and went this weekend because some friends wanted to go. Of course I made some money, but now I’m afraid my subconscious is going to kick back in and tell me I can do it again...
Just recently found Y12SR (Yoga 12 Step Recovery). It’s pretty sweet and a refreshing new take on a meeting, and it gets the body involved.

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
12 years sober yesterday. It works if you work it!
