Hi all-

I am a sober Mom, in recovery since 2008 (my sobriety date is Apr 19, 2012, I've had a handful of relapses)... and wondering if there are any other sober Moms here?

Here are my top 3 things that I'm most grateful about being a sober Mom:

1) I always remember my conversations with my son

2) I am as present with him as possible, not distracted by being loaded!

3) I am showing him that you can have LOTS of fun sober!

What are some things you're grateful for about being a sober Mom?

Well I was an addict for 4 years before I had my kids.  I got sober a few months before I got pregnant with my son so I've never known life as an addicted mother.  But I want to say congrats to you and keep up the good work!

Ive been 'sober' from my eating disorder & drugs for almost 3 yrs now! I did stop drinking too for a good portion of those years but am not sober now. Congrats on being such a wonderful momma now :)

Like a pp, I grateful my addictions & motherhood never coexisted.

I'm not a sober mom (I don't drink in general), but I remember for years my father would try to quit drinking only to start again the same week. Congratulations on your success, you're doing something great for your kids.bow down

Not feeling sick,being able to look everyone in the eye knowing I haven't said anything stupid or offensive.

Are you doing that studying online? My friend is interested in doing that as well but the local junior college stopped their program so she was looking for something possibly online. Thanks!
