Dating a recovering alcoholic relationships carbon dating dates
I was unable to realize that I was causing my own problems.
In early sobriety, when our head begins to clear, we start to realize that we were playing the cover-up game with drugs and alcohol.
My happiness can’t be reliant upon whether I’m in a relationship or not because that increases the chances of me getting into another toxic relationship.
Early sobriety is all about learning how to live like a normal person, and I had no clue how to do that, so it’d be unfair to drag someone into that situation with me.
I stayed in California for my first year of sobriety because I knew I couldn’t be a good father to my son, a good friend to my friends or anything else until I worked on myself, so it would be insane for me to think that I could be a good boyfriend to anyone until I grew more as a person.
In AA and NA, I learned that drugs and alcohol were only symptoms of my disease.
I still had a lot to work on with myself if I were going to be of use to anyone else.
