Dating in aa recovery
—do not become involved with someone in recovery from substance abuse unless they have been clean and sober for at least one year.
And if you are newly sober you should know that one of the worst things a person can do in early recovery is jump headfirst into a romance.
After dating one dud after another, you finally find someone who seems to have it all – thoughtful, witty, responsible – and good-looking to boot.
Then they drop a bomb: “I used to be a drug addict.” They may as well have said, “I’m married.” But does one partner being in recovery automatically spell doom for a relationship?
When people with addiction issues try to jump into a relationship too soon, there is a very good chance that they are attempting to fill the hole they feel inside by replacing their drug of choice with something else that will give them that high they are craving.
