Dating service for recovered partner Find people for sex chat
In working with the spouses and significant others of addicts, I’ve often heard it said, “I’d rather be an addict than love one.” While few people would ever walk eyes-wide-open into a chronic disease like addiction, the statement speaks to the confusion, loneliness and despair common not only among addicts but also the men and women who love them. In fact, addicts who are solid in their recovery can make excellent partners.
Since relapse is always a possibility, addicts and their partners need to stay alert to their triggers and be prepared to get help when warranted.
If you’ve struggled with addiction yourself, be extra cautious – your use can trigger their relapse, and their relapse could spell ruin for both of you.
Someone with less than a year sober should stay focused on their recovery program, not dating.
This guideline is designed to protect the addict as well as the people they might date.
In the earliest stages, most recovering addicts are trying to figure out who they are, what they want and how to be in a healthy relationship.
