My boyfriend and I have been together for 2.5 years and during our college years/before we were dating I slept with one of his friends and also kissed two others. Even after being together for that long he still gets upset about it and causes a fight. I don't even know what to say anymore because it's so ridiculous to me..... is this normal? How do I resolve this for good? Any advice is appreciated :)

Need investment advice. NW of 600k, 31 and single, save about 5k a month. Recently moved to US 2 years ago. Have about $100k to invest. Breakdown of NW: 100k cash, 450k in 2 RE properties in Toronto, 50k in tax saving accounts (401k, HSA). Max out HSA and max company match for 401k. I’ve had really good success in RE, so it’s my comfort zone. I feel like I should be diversifying, but I’ve been spoiled by 20%+ yoy gains. Thoughts?

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!
Quit the booze back in September. It mostly hasn't been that hard but I can't get a grip on my emotions this week. Feeling overwhelming sadness for no real reason. (Cont)

What are some fun sober activities or hobbies? Meaning where it's hard or impossible to drink while doing the activity? Hiking, bike riding, shooting guns are some that come to mind. What else?
First in-person retreat in a while coming up and first for me at this particular firm. Several people have mentioned that much of the bonding etc happens while drinking. I am newly sober and now worried about being in this environment, any tips for making it through the weekend? Similar experiences?
Feeling so frustrated and scared. I am trying my hardest to be loving to my brother who is addicted to many things. My family has been encouraging him for years to get real help. He’s finally semi-agreed to go to a detox facility and then rehab. However, those are far away from where we all live now. My 70+ dad wants to fly with my brother there to make sure he goes. I understand, but also...there’s a freaking pandemic going on with a virus targeting older people. Cont’d...

My dad has a problem with alcohol. When he stops drinking for a day he clearly exhibits all the signs for alcohol withdraw. Shaky hands, sweating insomnia. I’m so tired of seeing him fall. My mom has passed away (they were long divorced) so I really don’t have anyone to turn to. How can I be supportive without being an enabler? He has lost the last three jobs and is currently jobless and will must likely need my financial help soon.
Is everyone on here sober from (mostly) everything? Do you sometimes partake in other vices? For me, it’s smoking herb 1-2x/week. Used to be way worse (❄️⛷💊🥃) and that’s how/why I justify it.
Starting on my journey to sobriety today from sex addiction. I’ve been clean from alcohol for several years but my therapist has pushed me to start attending AA meetings in addition to SAA meetings. I know I can’t overcome this alone.

I’m ready to get real treatment for my alcohol usage. Would love to benchmark my path against others in the group as I don’t trust my decision making ability right now.

Help! I stopped drinking but now I smoke the vape pens & I’m hopelessly addicted to nicotine, worried about my lungs. How do I quit this hellish fix? Feel I may start smoking cigs to get off the vape?
Does anyone have recommendations for non-alcoholic drinks? I have been having soda with lime at happy hours, but also just found Athletic Beer that is n/a as an option. I’m tired of temptation and upturned or confused looks. Also, just have felt so much better not drinking and not going down a spiral - really want to keep things that way.
