Default need some suggestions..should I make a major change?

My sponsor tells me not to make any major changes for a year but i have the oppurtunity to move in with my family in another state and work this summer. He tells me not to but i will have 7 months by then and i was wondering what others thought about it.

What kind of environment will it be?
Anyone in your family use?
Anyone who you'd be hanging around with a big ol' party thing?
Is this the area you grew up in? Is it a safe place to be?
Are your family and friends supportive of your sobriety?
Will sticking with meetings be a realistic possibility?
Those are just a few questions that popped into my head... I can't tell you how to work your program, but I believe you should consider what's involved besides a job.

Those are the two big questions. I can't move any closer to my family than I am right now because I am not strong enough not to allow them to destroy my recovery!! I think I would need 5 years of circling up to the tables before I could handle being around my family, even with daily meetings!!
