Hey. I'm Pamela and I am an ever grateful recovering alcoholic (and a few other things as well). I have been sober a little over three years ( 4 in April). I have not been to meetings in about 18 months. I could give you all the excuses, we all have them. I have continued to do what I have learned in the rooms to stay sober, however, I miss the fellowship. I work 2 jobs now, have 2 children ( 1 that is 10 years old and a baby that is 16 months old), and I am married to my children's father who is active in his addiction. I feel strong in recovery and faith, but I know what I have learned and I need this forum. I'm not looking for anyone to "tell me what I need to do". I really would like to be a part of this fellowship and listen, get back in the "rooms" and back into recovery. Yes, I've been sober, but I haven't been healthy sober, you know?

    Hi Pamela. Whereas your life seems to have been recreated three years ago (based on your sobriety period), my life started being destroyed three years ago. I have been struggling with depression for the past three years, have been unable to shake it even with the aid of a psychiatrist and prescribed prescriptions to deal with this malady, and have more recently decided that alcohol was a means of helping me to correct my life. As a recovering alcoholic, I admire you as it must be difficult to resist the temptation that presents itself by means of your husband who is active in his addiction. Although I am married, I am the sole addict in the family. My only temptations are of my own making. I wish to cure that although I know that the temptations will always be there I wish to find the strength that you have and be able to ignore them. You must be a very strong person. I am at a point where my online name says it all "who cares". Or as I have adapted it, Quicares (qui is French for who, and cares is cares in English - Quicares).
