I left my old job in sales after 18 months.
I loved the job, felt valued and did some great work.
My reason for leaving was that I was offered a position on a basic of double the money and the opportunity to build a team which I relished.
The new job is an hour and half commute (the old job was local) and I am working 12-15 hours every day which is affecting my family life. There is also a very heavy drinking culture (I am 2 years sober).
My old company has gotten in touch and offered me the opportunity to go back on more money (which, when you take into account travel expenses, works out the same as the new job).
However my boss at my new job has invested heavily in recruitment and infrastructure for the process of setting up my new team.
I really do want to go back to my old job but I feel that morally I can't. My new boss is also extremely unapproachable and volatile and even breaking this news seems an impossible task anyway. I also have the old adage 'you should never go back' in the back of mind.
Any advice would be hugely appreciated.
