Are you sober? Do you drink in front of or with your loved?


#1

This month is #SoberOctober. Are you sober? Do you drink in front of or with your loved one, whether they are in active addiction or recovery?

I went through periods of not drinking/using any substances because of what I had seen them do to my loved one. Now (fast forward 5 years through recovery) we’re in a place where he can generally drink socially and safely and I can enjoy a glass of something with him too. Alcohol was something he enjoyed in excess previously, but was not his achilles heel when it came to addictive substances. So though I still keep an eye on his approach to drinking it’s not something I’m fearful of and to me it doesn’t necessarily indicate danger. I know everyone is so different and I’m so curious to hear how others experience this dilemma with themselves and their loved ones.
