He’s been sober for over 2 months—is it too good to be true?


I’m just needing a bit of reassurance today… my hubby is nearly 70 days sober after a very very hard start to 2020, and everything seems different this time around. He’s never been sober for this long, and my gut is telling me he’s in it for the long haul. Our relationship has never been better, our lines of communication have been open and completely honest, and our kids can even sense that everything is more peaceful.

There is still this nagging voice inside telling me that this is all too good to be true, and that I should have my guard up for when he drinks again, but I know that’s no way to live. I know logically that even if he does relapse, all this hard work won’t be for nothing, but the fear is still there.

Welcoming any and all success stories and encouragement here to help me stay in this optimistic headspace!!
