Dating services for recovering alcoholics
If you do meet someone special within the first year of recovery, taking it slowly and being honest that your sobriety is the most important factor in your life is crucial.Dating in recovery can be challenging for many reasons.I do not subscribe to any recovery programs and I feel comfortable (most of the time) around alcohol. I have recently found that I have problems meeting people my age (particularly for romantic relations) because I am (as my mother says) a non-active alcoholic.
I commend you for not dating primarily fellow recovering alcoholics. Because then your life would be totally circumscribed by alcohol, its avoidance, the issue of alcoholism, etc. And, given that you don’t belong to any movement for recovery, it seems you don’t want to devote your life to group meetings and fellow alcoholics.
Dating in addiction recovery can often lead to relapse if you are not ready for what lies ahead.
From the abundance of strong emotions at the beginning of a relationship, to the emotional turmoil experienced during a breakup, dating can often cause a person to put their recovery on the back burner, or worse – experience a relapse.
Did you know that when you enter alcohol or drug rehab, there is a good chance that you will be asked to agree to a non-fraternization policy?
This means that you agree to stay out of relationships with other clients.
