Supplement your AA meetings with this site, WolfsChild. Be consistent and check in here every day to let us know your progress. You don't have to spend your whole day on here; just check in for a few minutes each day to check in and read the helpful comments people leave for you.

It's a valuable form of support that's wholesome and doesn't involve you leaving the house for too many nights a week.

That was my husband's main objection to my going to AA. Turned out that his disapproval worked out in my best interest: using SR consistently was the means that God really used to help my recovery stick.

3 meetings a week is a good start for you. And, as Gilmer said, use SR at the times when you are home. There is always something inspiring to read here.

Glad to hear you are going back to something that has helped you in the past. 3 meetings is a lot better than none, right? There are online AA meetings too if you would care to check them out as an alternative if you can't attend in person. And SR is always here of course.
