Al anon when dating recovered alcoholic
I'm also now seeing a counsellor who is telling me that my drinking habit is "dangerous" and that if I carry on the way I'm going, I will "most likely be a fully-fledged alcoholic" by the time I'm in my fifties (I'm 32 now).
To paint the picture, I usually drink at least 5 nights out of 7; sometimes only one glass of red wine, but often (and mainly at weekends) as much as 2-3 bottles of wine along with numerous glasses of whisky or brandy to follow.
It is recommended that people who are still within the first year of their recovery should avoid beginning romantic relationships.
This is because their priority needs to be staying sober.
It is strongly advised that they remain focused on themselves until their sobriety is strong.
One of the worst things that an individual can do in early recovery is jump headfirst into romance.Some of you are here for the first time and are wondering why would someone have such a blog. However, I did label myself this stupid word for many years and I did not drink a drop for 37 years. My blogging name is “massive” In the summer of 2008, someone very close to me was drinking out of control. He was drinking and pill popping and was showing signs of being mentally sick. He once wore a Brooks Brothers suit, worked for Pfizer, was college educated, a NY cop, he took us to the Jersey Shore to Surf (awesome) he taught me to swim at age 5. a man who had been an AA trustee and a previous delegate.
