Straight facts. When what’s best for you isn’t best for someone else you’ll find a ton of push back. I’ve found hat even when a loved one says they want sobriety for you they feel threatened. Not all of them but more than I’d have thought. So many women have asked us why their partners become annoyed, aggravated, or assholish once they put the bottle down. This is what we think:
- They’re losing their partner in crime.
- They cant be the “hero” who takes care of you when drunk or hungover.
- They can’t write their own version Bc now you remember things.
- They’d need to look at their own substance use.
Not everyone (obvs) feels or acts this way but it’s out there. If it happens, move along. It’s time to put you first. Happy Tuesday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
