Scared but determined

I have been sober for 2 years and 10 months, before I got sober I lost a 23 year marriage and a 30 year career. For the entire time I've been sober I have not worked ( Thank God I had savings I could live off of ) and have pretty much isolated myself. I have now accepted a job in my old field of work. However this is going to require me to relocate to another state. I have lived in 7 different states during my career. Just getting scared about staying sober during this new phase of soberity. I have already gotten a list of AA meetings in the new state to attend. But as of right now no one I will be working with or for knows I am an alcoholic. Has any one faced anything similar and have any advise.

Welcome to the forum, kcala. Good work on the 2 years plus. The people you work for and with don't need to know you're an alky. But you will need to connect with groups and fellow alkies in your new location.
Getting a sponsor would be helpful. But, CONNECT...

Let us know how it's going. We are rooting for you...


First, deal with the things that might kill you.
