My honey and I are going through something I'd bet is not that unusual. All his (large) family ever wanted was for him to sober up, and I heard plenty about that. In January he began tapering off, and now he is (we are) completely clean and sober. Now that he's sober and exhibiting responsibility and consistency, all his family can talk about is the crappy stuff he did while he was drinking - - and, man oh man, do they have plenty to say. It's like how the state keeps death row inmates in perfect health until they execute them. I've managed to dodge most of it, find reasons to hang up the phone, or excuse myself from their presence, but this is starting to weigh on me! "And he did this, and that, and - - " And the stuff they are talking about is from TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO! No joke, 25 years. I've only known him for one year, so this stuff WAY pre-dates me. Do they expect me to break up with him, or wave a magic wand and change history? They're not working a program, so nothing I'd have to say would make any sense. And I'm scared to ask "What do you want me to do?" Well, I DO keep my phone unplugged a lot now. Thanks for listening. I guess I just needed to vent some.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
