    Hi,

    I am having a tough time staying sober. I was up until yeterday evening 3 months sober, but I got so depressed and discouraged about my current employment situation I drank. I am a teacher and have currently only 8 hours/week of work. I don’t expect this schedule to improve for at least 5 months since the hiring period in Japan is in April. I last worked full-time in March 2008 when I was fired. After I was let go I did not work for about one year and since April of this year have been teaching about 7 hours. My wife is supportive and tells me not to worry about work too much, but I get really down about it. I find it difficult to remain positive. I do pray every day, try to work the steps ( I am at step 8, cannot move onto step 9 since an ammend involves a debt, which I cannot address until I secure full-time work), and try to exercise, meditate…

    I would love to hear from others who are experiencing similar situations and how they cope?

    Patk
