If anyone were to get involved w/ a person in recovery, I'd recommend al-anon or coda or some program to provide them w/ the info & support they needed. t together more than those who are sober & vice versa- sometimes it is about the person & not their addiction.
If you have delivered some sort of ultimatium, you need to be able to follow through.Also, you need to not use backsliding as an excuse for drama.Once I went to a AA meeting with a friend,she was an alcoholic she drinks /7 after work and she drink tooo much when we go night clubbings, but she won't admit it, (she was jailed for DUI/paid fine and did community work ) she wants some one to go with her so she entice me with "There are lots of men there ,maybe we will find our true love there", so I went with her and I find those men makes me decide to be single for the rest of my life and not mess up with men LOL.If you are seriously dating someone in an organized recovery program, you need to be able to support meeting attendence (including closed meetings) and other related events.If you need to make changes in your own life, be sure you are doing it for you and not for the person in recovery.You also have to be able to refrain from "managing" the addict and their recovery process.
This is a hard one for co-dependents, but you must be able to let the addict manage their own recovery.Aside from my own thoughts on 12-step programs (not the least bit positive, so I'll refrain from expounding here) ~ I have NO interest in dealing with dry drunks/dry highs EVER again.JMO It is hard..not any of us are perfect all of the time.For instance, it is sometimes hard for a person in recovery, especially early on, to be around someone who is still an active user.Particularly if that use is a major portion of that person's life.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
