Aa recovery and dating
I’ve been in and out of 12-step recovery programs (like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous) for almost 20 years.
I’ve had many periods of sobriety, from a paltry four months to a lengthy seven years (and everything in between).
It takes a lot of work and a lot of time to squelch it in all its myriad forms.
Sam is in a seven-month relationship with a “normie,” and it’s going really well.
When two people in recovery date, they have a lot in common: the same AA meetings, the same friends, the same problems.During her sobriety, Sam’s had two relationships with fellow sober addicts, but both ended because of their relapses. Dating a fellow addict can feel a bit like betting with the odds against you.
