Dating within alcoholics anonymous
New ppl are vulnerable and when they take the focus off their sobriety, and put more effort into pursuing the opposite sex there is usually trouble.I really believe too that its really none of my business if ppl in the fellowship want to date each other. GG, There are so many reasons why it's suggested to take a year off from relationships to get sober.Then I had another string of false starts and now I just don't care that much.I might be dating someone nice now but more remains to be seen.Take care of "you" first and a wonderful life awaits. Well let me go see some new faces of hope and life.. The relationship was not a trigger for me though I can tell you what happened.
I have heard tho many times that it is recommended that new ppl dont make any major changes early in sobriety. This is not an official recommendation of Alcoholics Anonymous as far as I know.Anyway, I'm just wondering if y'all have other advice you would be willing to share regarding dating in early sobriety. I came from, born and raised in the diseaseand was not only predisposed to the chemical and all of the stuff that brings butalso the thoughts, feeling and behaviors that make up an alcoholic's character.I've been going to AA for about 6 months and have 2 months of sobriety. I was told that unless I got a secure hold on who and what I was and made somemajor amends my ongoing relationships would end up the same way.It took me well over a year for me to really start to see things with a clearer head.I was also reminded that most who come into AA don't make it a year.
