Stress is a big trigger for me. A while back my partner was diagnosed with some serious health problems and I caved. It’s sort of been all down hill from there.

I also stopped coming in to check in here, and I’m not getting that daily connection

I’m sorry to hear about your partners health problems. That can be hard to navigate emotionally, as well all the day to day stuff addressing it.
I hope you’ll keep checking in daily to get the community support offered.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I am planning on checking into the forum daily again. It has been a great tool for me in the past.

I am sorry about your partner. Stress can be a tough one, but I try to remind myself of how much more present, kind and loving to my partner I am sober than when I drank. Perhaps that could be a helpful way to reframe what drinking offers.

Yes, I think that is absolutely true. For me (and for many of, I suspect), alcohol is a very temporary fix, which inevitably gives rise to more problems. I am much better of a partner when I am sober, so that’s a great reframing.

Welcome back.

Sorry to hear that you’ve been going through a tough time. Easy to fall back into our addictions. I just take it one day at a time. It’s all I have at the moment.

Yes the early days drag on. Hope you continue to feel better!

I think you know what you can change :blush:
You can be a better help for your partner being sober. Numb your feeling isn’t make the situation any better, it only makes it worse…
But it’s hard to see your partner suffer, I understand that! Give him the best you you can give, a sober you! You both deserve that! :heart:
Take care :heavy_heart_exclamation:
