Family Sit - Down?
I was thinking about sitting down with my family, parents/in-laws and siblings, to talk with them about my addiction. Fortunately for me, my family is pretty understanding. My parents have both been through AA, they completely understand addiction. My in-laws are really good about eating well and would be more than willing to cater to my needs during the holidays. Last Christmas, my BIL gave my husband and I P90X because my hubs had said something about wanting to lose weight (overall he is healthy, he just has some body-fat he wants to lose). I apprecaite the gester, but I'm sure he is wondering why, a year later, we haven't touched it.
The only person I see being a slight problem is my dad. He and I had a strained relationship while I was growing up and we "mostly" mended things before I got married. However, he comes off as a know-it-all and is always telling me I shouldn't drink because I have a predisposition to alcohol addiction. First, I might have a drink every 6 months but I have never been drunk. Second, I wish he would stop stressing alcohol; he used to tease for me "chubby" when I was young, he has to know something is going on.
Is there anyone who would see this as a good thing? Or anyone who has any hesitations they're willing to share?
