Dating an alcoholic in recovery
He had really gotten his head straight, and he helped me understand a lot about alcoholism.He ran meetings and did a lot of service work, he had a lot of sponsees over the years. His first night, he got roaring drunk and caused a public commotion.Unless a person gets a sponsor and works the steps...cannot and will not recover.. Not a drop of alcohol without an ounce of recovery still equals insanity.I would absolutely take my time and make sure someone is really working the program before allowing myself to get emotionally involved with them. Sobriety is about more than not drinking...is about living and working the steps and spirituality of this program a day at a time. Pray on it and trust your gut and take your time...........
Another normie friend met and marrried an alcoholic with 6 years of sobriety and a more wonderful man I never met...until they got married, then a more ugly human being I have never met, so GO SLOW....I am so scared that my AH will relapse because, like you, I don't ever what to go through this hell again.I was very close to committing myself to a mental hospital.The material presented here is not Al-Anon Conference Approved Literature.
