Dating rules during 1st year sobriety
Needless to say, this was not a match that God had intended for us. If you think about it, treatment and early AA’s are usually people who have been obsessive, manipulative, and controlling for a good portion of their lives.Why anyone would think that dating someone with these same tendencies after only a few short days of sobriety is foolish, and I can tell you from experience, it definitely takes one’s mind off their own recovery.The biggest one was that you shouldn't date for your first year of sobriety.The way I see it is that you can't stop living life. I know this is only my opinion but I feel pretty strongly about it.I started worrying about the outfits I was wearing, I tried to constantly place myself in situations where I could be around them, and sometimes, I was consumed by fear and jealousy when I saw them flirting with someone else.When we got out, they moved into a flop house and could have guests over at any time.They started their steps immediately so they could learn that it was only fear and selfishness that drove them to seek comfort in one night stands and fleeting romance.
