This is How a Sober Wife, Saved My Family Life…

It’s absolutely awesome having a sober wife who’s not actually in recovery! She gives me, and, understands the best of both worlds. And just because she hasn’t been an addict, doesn’t mean she hasn’t been through struggle growing up in the Philippines, or even being married to an addict (me). She understands my need and want to stay sober, but then, also understands the “normie” aspect to living a balanced and fulfilling life; that I frankly wouldn’t get without being around her so freaking much! Like when I’ll go on an 18-hour work binge because stuff is flowing, and knowing...

Six Years Clean and a Merry Christmas!

Today was my six years clean and sober, in recovery, and one of the best days that I’ve had in a long time! It was also Christmas, and sobriety was a great present to myself, as well as others. I wasn’t only rejoicing for me but I was rejoicing for the sanity of my mother and health of my father. Frankly, this was the first year that one, or both, of her sons hasn’t spent in the hospital. That alone is a blessing. But to say that I’ve been actively working on my recovery for six years now is a...

I'm Not an Addict in Recovery, but I Still Chose to be 100% Sober! Why?

My wife and I were sitting around talking today and I had a few questions on my mind. If most of you didn’t already know, she isn’t an addict. But the best part about it for me is that she understands addiction pretty well, understands recovery well, and is completely abstinent and sober herself. Now what I’d always thought was that she had stopped for me when we’d gotten together, and that isn’t completely false. But to my surprise it’s not that hard for her either; I’m not sure why I’m surprised by that, but it really isn’t hard for...

The Key to Keeping My Husband Sober Is…

My wife has had a very influential experience in my recovery, there is no denying that! When we first met I was in recovery, but I wasn’t necessarily practicing it to its fullest extent. But when love conquers most things in this world it’s easy to say that she was a pivotal turning point for me to kick my recovery into full gear. I’m not joking either! I was a hot mess when we met, just getting out of the hospital, 2 years sober, with blood clots among other health ailments. But it seemed once we met, got serious, and...
