Dating an alcoholic who is sober
I feel kind of heartless writing that, but I’m thinking in terms of what I would tell my closest female friends or my sister if they asked me what you asked me.
There’s nothing wrong with being a supportive friend to him while he figures out his alcohol addiction.
and I see him drinking more than a glass, I kindly hand him the tea and go out of my way to ask him if he would like some water. How he takes on the challenge of recovery will tell you a lot about his strength of character.
He felt extremely guilty for that night at dinner.. and I have never been in this situation or even know how to deal with this. Al-Anon is an organization for partners of recovering alcoholics. If your boyfriend does get into therapy, you might ask to be included now and then to talk about how you can support his recovery and what changes he is willing to make to deserve your trust. It’s too early to decide whether he is the one for you.
In the meantime, I’d say hold off on starting an “official” relationship for both your sakes.
I Have been dating someone for a little over a month. He also feels that he went to AA for preventive measures..
I am fortunate to say that I have never battled with an alcohol addiction, but I have to imagine that truly addressing that issue is very emotionally, psychologically and mentally intense.
If he has that on his plate to deal with, I don’t think that this is the right time for him to start a new relationship either.
You don’t know what triggers his drinking or what his follow-through is like in general.His relationship ended and he decided to get help through AA. AA asked him kindly to stop sharing stories with the rest of the group because they did not agree with him working in a bar. He didn’t like the feeling of his face feeling hot.
