NOt sure where to put this? Is there a forum here for moms in recovery?

Alcoholism in particular but any recovering moms at all?

TIA

Lol, I doubt I'm the only one... I'm a recovering addict, I was addicted to Rx pain meds, particularly OxyContin, Dilaudid, Vicodin & Percocet. My Dad & Stepdad were both alcoholics when I was growing up, my Mom was addicted to both "uppers & downers" (as she puts it) and went to treatment for one month when I was 9. Both of my Grandma's were alcoholics, my Grandpa is also, and all my aunts & one uncle on my Dad's side are either recovering alcoholics/addicts or still are/not yet recovering... Is it any wonder I became an addict also, lol. However... I've been clean since 2009, when I found out I was pregnant (with now my oldest of 2 boys). I even quit smoking cigarettes that day and haven't smoked since then:) It's still very, very, VERY DIFFICULT TO REMAIN SOBER. Especially since my 3.5 year old was recently diagnosed with Autism a couple of months ago. So, you're not alone! I hope you are doing well:)

Good morning! I'm doing well. How funny that on a national board you are in Woodbury MN. I'm in Eagan. Well I'm just moving there from Minneapolis.  Do you have a strong support system?  Do you do any AA meetings?

 

I am sorry for the stress your son's diagnosis has placed on you!!  My oldest has begun experimenting with pot...  parenting is hard!!!

 

Hope to hear from you soon
