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?
We alcoholics have superhuman will power. After a convincing that my life would never equate to its full potential if I alone was the source of the will it took to power it through, I saw a need for rest, or atleast, a period to contemplate wrong doings and ask if there was another way. That other way turned out to be third step work, where I turn it COMPLETELY over to a God that wants to be...
Since I was young I had a love for alcohol like no one else. I drink every night till I past out, my liver is dying I am dying. Alcohol is so good SO Good God what happened to me???
