    Hi everyone!

    First of all, let me introduce myself. I’m Ross, and I’m brand new here. Now that we’ve got that out of the way…

    I just slipped last night, and I’m really scared to tell my sponsor. He knows I am prescribed adderall, and I’m an AA and CMA. We both agreed it’s a trigger, but I told him I would try to see if I could handle it in early recovery.

    I just had 24 days sober, and I slipped. I took 1/2 an extra dose, then last night I took 3xs the dose :-(.

    I just broke up with my boyfriend and I’m still living with him. For the last three nights, every attempt at moving has been delayed for the last three days. I’m hoping to get out of here tonight. I have a place to go, but I’m afraid I need to be with sober people, not another co-dependent (which this new roomie claims he is, oh great!).

    Life is rough right now but here’s my point, and question:
    I am powerless over adderall too, there I said it. Now, how do I tell my sponsor? He’s an awesome sponsor and I would be unraveled if he cut me off. Is that what happens when a newcomer slips (or was this a relapse)? What can I expect from him? I’m prepared to dump all this adderall down the toilet if it means he will still sponsor me.

    I’m ashamed that I pissed away 24 days of sobriety because I couldn’t bare to face the consequences of breaking up with my boyfriend. I don’t want to tell him, but what should I do? I don’t want to feel this guilt anymore.
