1st year sobriety and no dating

Rated 4.23/5 based on 947 customer reviews

Much advice is doled out in the rooms of 12-step meetings about relationships in early recovery.“Don’t date in the first year of sobriety,” is one of the most common rules of thumb that many 12 steppers advocate.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?

One moment they feel awesome, on top of the world, incredibly attractive, and unbelievably horny; the next moment they feel like the world’s biggest pile of dog crap, completely unworthy of love and affection.

Healthy Recovery, Healthy Relationships Most recovering addicts aren’t strangers to therapy and, as a result, have spent a lot of time working on themselves and their relationships.

They have learned critical relationship skills, including how to identify, process and communicate their emotions and to set personal boundaries while respecting the lines drawn by others.

When addicts (of all types) enter treatment and recovery, one of the first things they are told is to not make any major life changes in the first year of sobriety, especially when it comes to romantic relationships.

If they’re married, they’re told to stick it out for at least twelve months no matter how bad their relationship seems in the moment.
