Jennifer.....Welcome to Hubpages. You don't say how long you have been a recovering alcoholic, but Congratulations on taking that step and welcome to the world of sobriety 24/7. If you'll excuse me and my perspectives on so much in life, I despise "labels" of any sort. Although I jokingly refer to myself as a recovering Catholic of 40 years, I would prefer to think of you and others who have quit drinking as "formerly addicted."
I don't believe there is a person living who is not a bit "addicted" to something....food, gambling, shopping, drugs, sex, Video games.....this list can be endless. Wouldn't you agree? Certainly some are more harmful and/or damaging than others, but they all have their price to pay unless and until we defeat them.
Please know that you can do anything you have made a vow to do. You have the will, support and strength. Believe in yourself and the love of your family. Now that you have joined the HP "Family," I can promise you, you have just become a member of a Community of the most awesome, loving, helpful & giving people in the world. Not just fluffy words, Jennifer....this is fact. The best part is that you will experience this for yourself.
Please share your feelings with us by writing your first hub. We look forward to your contributions......Peace, Paula
