So my bf and I of almost 2 years have decided to get sober together, which is a really beautiful thing. We both have issues with alcohol and drinking too much, plus alcohol turns us both into ugly people. This is a huge step in our relationship.
However I’m a little nervous because I feel like so much of our relationship revolved around alcohol, and now being together sober feels a little weird. But weird in a good way if that makes sense. Like I feel shy and nervous, like first date feeling. ‘What do I say? Will he like me’ are thoughts that go thru my head like first date jitters.
I’m also struggling with the idea of wanting to drink, having some cravings here and there, especially right now as it’s the weekend and weekends were always heavy drinking for us. But I recognize that alcohol is destructive for me and I honestly find no joy in it once I start drinking.
Anyone out there gotten sober with their partner? Any advice or tips? He’s got a couple months under his belt and I have 5 Days.
