Dating a recovering heroin addict forums
” I wouldn’t typically reference the program of alcoholics anonymous whilst trying to articulate a valid point but it seems pretty natural seeing how that’s all that you could regurgitate in your reply! Nothing wrong with taking suggestions and following rules, definitely something wrong with not being able to produce any thought or emotion without using AA Big book as the true spoken gospel!
When you get sober, you’re given a new lease on life and it is too often just used as a prison sentence!
To that, I say a commonly used term recovery: it’s progress not perfection.
Regardless of how I focused on my own program of recovery, I felt there was a huge void with warding off new romantic relationships for an entire year.
I am one of those people dedicated to sobriety that did ignore that rule, and luckily it did work out for us.and in that case, relapsing is very much a possibility.However, if intentions and motives were above board, could going against and disobeying a major rule or suggestion in early recovery produce a successful relationship? Could two addict/alcoholics produce a positive relationship?I think there are a lot of great things you hear in early sobriety, especially in 12 step meetings.However, much like organized religion, things are sometimes gravely misinterpreted and taken out of context in some of these anonymous groups.
Or would this increase the possibility of relapse for both?
