Dating sites for recovered alcoholic
Last night, we were driving around, and stopped at a red light. i would not because I shoot pool and attend pool tournaments on a regular bassis. There are so many misconceptions about alcoholics and AA.
He went to get his CD's out of his glove compartment, and when the light turned green and he stepped on the gas, an Alcoholics Anonymous book came sliding out. I had a couple hints before, but he hasn't actually said anything about it to me. I have never dealt with this type of situation before. Hey I think that if he is doing it for himself that is awsome! These tournaments are usually held at clubs or pool halls where drinking takes place. Many people think that once you no longer have the desire to drink than you should/can stop going to AA meetings.
’ is first thing you’ll hear,” said Paul Kole, cofounder of
“But if you’re on a sober site it’s more of a fellowship.
I figure, if he is getting help, and not drinking at all anymore, that's great! I dated a guy who went to AA because he got numerous DUI's He went back to the boo's I think if he wanted to do this and no body put him up to it. I am going to Las Vegas in june for a big tournament. He's been sober for 5 years and chair's many meetings to help others! I am a light drinker, he knew that when he met and does not have a problem with it! I hardly ever drink, I've decided to slow it down as well, so, I don't need a drinking buddy. Being an alcoholic does not mean you can not attend pool tournaments, be around drinking, go to clubs or bars, etc........ and if you really want to do it for yourself to make that better life for yourself... This is HIGHLY not a suggested way of doing things.
If the person I am dateing can not attend or be around drinking than we don't have much in common. I want someone who can go have fun with out the alcohol. He knows that I will have a drink on occasion, but, I am not going out to get drunk anymore. I always felt guilty if I had a glass of wine at dinner ..it's kinda like waving a big piece of chocolate cake in front of a dieter. It all depends on how spiritually comfortable you are within yourself. heck i have even offered him a drink every once in awhile when i do see him... And, that is exactly what I am hoping for with this guy. how long he has been on the program..how he came to be on the program... Again, you NEVER become "recovered" if you are a true alcoholic.
