Dating someon in recovery
To be clear, no professional would ever recommend dating in early recovery.
If you date too soon, you may also be using the relationship as a way to quell the urges in early recovery.
Whether you are single and getting sober, or recovery is a part of your relationship, here are some tips to help you date smarter and safer. A therapeutic environment is a necessity for learning more functional patterns of behavior and gaining insight into the origins of your disease.
In therapy, you will work on assessing readiness, especially for the dating game.
Be aware that diving into a new relationship can trigger the same receptors.
Ask yourself if you are really ready to share your time with a significant other, or if you are using relationships as a distraction.
