Early sobriety is difficult (I've done it many times). We need to do what needs to be done to achieve and maintain sobriety. In AA , that means working the 12 Steps. No relationship is going to work, including the ones that are hanging by a thread (I was married when I got sober), if we don't recover from alcoholism.
Once we have worked the 12 Steps, our relationships tend to improve dramatically, and our ability to engage in meaningful relationships with others, ourselves and our Higher Power, progresses by leaps and bounds.
