Welcome to a great place for encouragement greengirl. We're happy to have you with us.

It helps to talk about things with people who really understand. I'm sorry you're going through a challenging time. As you already know, masking our feelings with alcohol isn't an answer. (I wish I hadn't been such a slow learner.) Sounds like you're determined. Well done on your 3 sober months.
