I am an alcoholic, now sober for three weeks. I have been attending AA meetings, going to group therapy, learning about CBT, changing my lifestyle etc. etc. I am really enthusiastic about my recovery, but since I am so early in recovery I know I am very vulnerable.

My mother and I have already asked them not to drink in the house, and they have agreed to that, but I know they will probably still use and hide it. I don't know how I will handle a situation in which I suspect they're either drunk or high. I won't want to accuse them, but I don't want to burn with silent rage either... How should I cope?

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
