I gotta accept them unconditionally program and not. (((((hugs))))) Hi GG, I personally dont have any experience dating in AA.
I have heard tho many times that it is recommended that new ppl dont make any major changes early in sobriety. This is not an official recommendation of Alcoholics Anonymous as far as I know.
I’ve been in and out of 12-step recovery programs (like Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous) for almost 20 years.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. first off, I know the AA recommendation about not dating during your first year of sobriety. :) My ex-boyfriend and I broke up a couple of months ago (completely amicable, he moved to Chicago to start grad school and the distance just became unsustainable, I live in San Francisco). He's great, seems very stable and self-aware, he doesn't drink (not in the program but just chooses not to).My ex has been great and supportive, he was also in the program and recently shared with me some of the things that went wrong in the disastrous relationship he got into at 3 months sober -- being overly vulnerable, got attached too quickly, and lost focus on himself and his recovery, as a way of helping me know what pitfalls to look out for.
