Anyone have family or friends who are not that excited about your sobriety. I got in the biggest fight with my wife because I didn't feel comfortable going out with family and friends for pizza (I'm newly vegan) and beer (I just stopped drinking). I'm still very uncomfortable in social situations where everyone else is doing as they please while I'm trying to abstain. And although I look forward to being comfortable in these situations one day, I had just spent the previous day doing the same at brunch with everyone, and it was pure torture. I felt I'd put myself through enough for one weekend. Bottom line is wife really flew off the handle. She would not leave it alone, and insisted I go. She started calling me weak, and even got my daughter on the phone to try and shame me into going. I put my foot down and told her to get lost, and shelater apoligized for losing her mind. Unfortunately, becoming vegan and quitting the alcohol all in the same couple month has really screwed up our social lives as a couple, and I think this is just the beginning. Have any of you gone through this type of situation? And were eventually able to easily rejoin these social situations, with the same drinking friends and family members?
First win since 2016! Thought it should be acknowledged. The game got really exciting when Mayfield got in. Anyone else watch hard knocks? Good season with the Browns this year and Baker looks like a star.
I wanted to thank everyone who gave me advice on my loud and not sober neighbor. I finally reported her today. I feel liberated and taking a piece of my sanity and mental health back. I feel bad a little because I know that my s.o and I were in the same situation as her a few years ago. However, not screaming and triggering neighbors. I hope now this brings more peace to our living space. I know...
