He is sober and going to meetings and I am staying out of it. The End
And I’m really happy to hear that!
That’s saying a lot! Sounds like progress, just for today.
So sorry- I am in the same boat waiting for the next tsnuam
Yea:) Nothing more needs to be said!!
Mady, I know it’s extremely hard to stay out of the way and not ask questions or hover, etc., but you must. Stay stong. Here’s what I did when my daughter came home. I treated her like a ferral animal…. I know it sounds weird, but I basically, let her come to me in her own time. It took a several months, but she slowy started coming and talking to me! Slowly, we started to connect again. Remember, he is in early recovery.. I used to think once she was clean, she would be back to her old self… Not so in my daughter’s case. Their body’s and minds are messed up and it talkes a long time and we have to be patient.
I pray for him!!!
Sounds good to me.
I agree with Liz. I was very frustrated with my daughter in the first few months of sobriety because she was still immature, moody and difficult. It was better to just stay away from her, being kind but not trying to initiate much talk. She has slowly grown up before our eyes. My sponsor told me her maturity after rehab was about the age she started using – 14. Now after 9 months of sobriety she seems closer to 20. Take care of your self.
Keeping you in my thoughts.
