Rhiannon's question of the night.... ( we'll not count the other!!:) )
Still in my first week of AA. Now, my close girlfriend and her husband know that I'm fighting the alcohol thing ( only because my DH told them, I wasn't quite ready yet, he needed the support though so its ok w/ me) its no big deal but, I have a party to go to at there house this weekend. I mentioned to my husband that I didn't want to stay all day and night ( it's a yearly pool party that starts early in the am and ends in the early am , one of those parties). He says to me " I might want to stay long" and then he says " I don't want guilt if I do" and I said " I don't want that kind of pressure in my first week of sobriety" and he said " Ok we'll see how it goes"
How do I act if I'm ready to go and he is still ready to stay. He doesn't drink to get drunk, he'll have a few beers and play Volleyball and Watergames all day. I on the other hand deal with the drunk wives and others that don't play sports. Do I ask him to come home with me? Do I stay and 'GRIN AND BEAR IT?' I'm so confused and I just want to do the right thing for myself and my friends as well as my family, I just don't know how? This is all new after 15 years!! Boy a drink can sure change things can't it!
