LisaMary, you're in my prayers. I also found strength and support for my own issues in women's AA meetings.

I learned a great deal about setting boundaries in Al-Anon meetings. The support I found there was different from what I found in AA. In my early days of recovery, I took advantage of anything that I thought would help.

Just as Candy said, I wanted sobriety and I did whatever it took to stay sober. For me, it meant some very hard choices.


Let's walk!

LisaMary I understand what you are talking about I went through the same thing with my husband. I found solace with friends from my AA meetings. Do you go to meetings?

I wanted to stay sober and I set boundaries with my husband. If he wasn't home from the bar by 5:30 p I didn't make supper. If he was drunk I would sleep in another room. I did things that I wanted to do and I didn't worry about what he thought- more AA meetings, coffee with friends.
When my husband is talking and I didn't want to listen anymore I would leave the room.

I wanted sobriety and I did whatever it took to stay sober.

I am an intellingent person. I will control my emotions and not let my emotions control me. Everytime I am tempted to use food to satisfy my frustrated desires, build up my enjured ego or dull my senses, I will remember...even though I overeat in private, my excess poundage is there for all the world to see.
I will take off pounds sensibly!

So I made it through the long weekend, pretty well, I wasn't perfect. I had 2 beers Saturday while helping my neighbor who lost her husband weed out gardens. But didn't get intoxacated. Sunday I had a few drinks when my family came, but again kept it under control. Yesterday stayed AF.
I am really having an issue, with my husband, and his use.It really makes me frustrated. I am trying so hard to get sober and clean, I hate his personality when he drinks, it just gets on every nerve. He talks , and talks, he repeats himself over and over talks sexual, it just drives me crazy. I don't like being around him when he gets like that. Over this past weekend he drank a 1.75 liter and about 2/3 of a second one. He also drove drunk to pick up my granddaughter, even though I told him not to.( I wasn't home at the time.) It makes me angry that he puts other people in danger, and has no regard for others when he is drinking. I know I have my own stuff ,and I feel this is just adding more to it.
