Trouble on the homefront

Some alcoholics still have families when they get to AA. This is a place to ask questions and share experiences about relating to family members sober, especially when newly sober. (If you are not an alcoholic, please use the "Our Friends and Families" forum.)

I can feel your pain and all I know is this: Is it worth drinking over today or next week in a moment of weakness? Thinking your urge through start to finish and work being accomplished maybe might matter. Many people sober have dealt with your situation and they have stayed clean and sober and continue to live productive lives and so can you.

Like I mentioned earlier your mind in idle can lead you into stinking thinking and you have no control over this. Keep your mind occupied and this too shall pass and it can be peaceful and a way to unload stuff.
Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It's the best part of the day.

Blue - thanks... about the amends.... I think you're right, I can certainly put it in there with the idea of simply asking "what can I do?" or something... I'm sure my sponsor will have a good way to put it. I'm going to be sitting down with her soon to do my amends.....

Things have actually gotten better - in my head - I had my one breakdown day (sober, I mean where the marbles in my brain were rolling around)... and I've pretty much had a good week, just doing my own thing with little worry about the rest of it.... she's going to do what she wants regardless... my job is to stay sober, continue working the steps, work on my spiritual progress... and as corny as it sounds.. just smile...

I appreciate all you guys have to say, thanks for being my sounding board.
