On Day 2

I got so drunk Saturday I had to call in sick this morning! I have no doubt I'm an alcoholic! I went to a local AA group and got a temporary sponsor. I'm wondering if I should be up front with my boss in the morning about why I lay out of work. He's been good to me and he at least deserves an appology. I have no doubt this will be tough journey but daym I gotta stop!

Hi and Welcome,

I'm glad you are seeking support.

This is just my opinion, but I would never tell anyone I work with about my addiction. There are too many preconceptions and prejudices about alcoholics and I think it could so easily come back to haunt you.

Hi Stang


Well you know your boss better than we do.
I'd think carefully about the repercussions of laying everything out tho.

I remember coming into recovery my impulse was to unburden myself and tell everyone - that was fine for me but I had no job and no boss to consider.

Think it out

I chose to keep my problem private since people talk and gossip and before you know it everyone would have known something I would have preferred to keep between me and a small number of people. It's been about 3 months sober for me now, and who knows, maybe people have noticed the change in me, but no one has said anything, which is how I prefer it.
