So today I started thinking about honesty in my sobriety. I get that it is the only way this will work, but at what point are you open and honest with everyone. Do I have to come out to everyone and Say “I’m a alcoholic!” Do I need a sign? Do I slowly tell those that I get together with drawing it out over time?
Right now I feel like I’m in hiding. I’ve been to a few AA meetings and my closest family knows. I have spoken with two different women that have offered to sponsor me. Neither of them seemed right. I feel like this journey is extremely personal and very delicate decision.
It has taken me a very long time to give up and let god….
I wouldn’t say I’m an extremely religious person, but my relationship with God has always been very personal. He has watched over me for the last 14 years as I tried to self destruct my life. He has saved me from two suicide attempts and a very serious overdoes. I feel like he has a plan for me. I wouldn’t be here today if he didn’t.
So my question is , What’s next? Do I wait for another sign? I pray every night for his guidance in my recovery, I pray for a sign of what to do next. What has help those of you how are currently sober?
This is a new journey for me, 8 days and counting. What have you found that has helped?
