I have been sober for five months and my marriage was on the brink of failure.
Having become sober, I've been able to revolutionize my life and work towards being a better person in every facet of my life.
Ultimately, the only person I can control is me. I hope to be the type of man that my wife wants to have around in her life.
I know for certain that had I kept drinking, I would have lost everything I hold dear. If I looked at all of the problems in my life, the single common denominator to all my problems was my drinking.
We also see a couples therapist and I can tell you, that my wife does like the sober me and through consistency of practice, I aim to rebuild the trust I stole and damage I did when I was drinking.
There is lots of support around here and I agree with you, sobriety is the best decision one can make.
You are not alone in your struggles.
Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
