Dating in the first year of sobriety Sex chat in mongolia
Hello, I am in my 5th month of sobriety and just recently joined this site.
and I am unsure of what to do - what to say to him (I do not want to feel uncomfortable at meetings, etc...). When I was new to AA, the last thing I wanted to hear about were rules and guidelines.
Although I am a grown woman, have dated many times before, I feel like I am dating for the first time - actually, it really is the first time I have been completely sober. When I heard of a rule or guideline, or someone say â€œyou have to do thisâ€Tess, A common suggestion is no relationships in the first year, but few are able to do that. I have never known of a single healthy relationship that was formed during the first year of sobriety. Focus all your energy on learning to use the tools described in the AA literature.
Any thoughts regarding early sobriety, dating, and how to handle a uncomfortable situation, would be greatly appreciated. When we women get to AA, we are usually not very good at selecting the right man for us (our picker is broken).
You are going to be amazed at the changes that will occur in you as you stay sober and do the steps and continue practicing everything you will learn.
Many of the women have relationship history that needs to be looked at with a sponsor in order not to make the same mistakes we have always made in selecting a partner.
I promise you that you will sell yourself short if you get involved now.
If you practice the principles of the AA program, you will become a woman of grace and substance.
There are many promises in the BB and 12X12 and not just the ones listed after step 9.
There are promises sprinkled throughout all the literature of the happy, joyous and free experience we have embarked upon.
The type of man that is attracted to a newcomer is a whole different variety than the man who is attracted to the woman fully established in recovery. Easy Does It, JRThank you very much, Dallas and JR.
