Hi Tim, congratulations on your time! I celebrated five years in February. Just found the addiction thread. It's good to see other trans-identified people in recovery--I know there's at least one meeting in my city for sober trans people, though I haven't been yet. I'm still early in my trans journey (trans recovery?), and I plan to hit it up when I feel more comfortable.

I think that getting sober helped me sort out/acknowledge my resentments toward gender. However, it took another five years for me to finally "get honest" about this part of myself. A life beyond our wildest dreams, eh? :)

Hope all is well!

Welcome Rythm   So glad you are seeking help. May i make a suggestion to take an inventory of those around you. When I went through my period of discovery. I realized, it's not about me. In 12 step they encourage you to seek a higher power. Mine was my newborn son. I have been clean and sober for over 30 years. My kids are still my power. Bless you for coming to the logical conclusion it's time to change. Best wishes for a continued recovery.

Hi Rythm,

  Congrats on your 5 months. There are many of us here that know what an accomplishment that is. I am one of them. I'm Laurie and I'll have 18 years in February. So you see it can be done if you want to do the work.  Welcome To Susan's Place! Come on in and take a good look around.  Perhaps I can even get you to hop on over to the Introductions Thread and  create a post to tell us a little bit more about yourself so we can get to know you a little better and greet you properly.

  Also I'll add some links and information below that can help you get more out of our site. Please take time to become familiar with them especially the RED one as we are always getting questions that are answered there.

Congrats, Tim. That's a big deal. I'll have 2.5 years on the 6th. I came out in sobriety and my home group has been uber supportive. They have been a huge part of both my recovery and transition.
