Dating in aa recovery
I was totally wired after going out on my date and I felt a lot of old stuff come up afterwards.
I got through it with help from here, but it was the first time in a long time I felt like drinking for some reason.
Maybe one person is ready to start dating after 4 months, and another in 5 years, it all depends on the person. Maybe you want to date because you are lonely and feel dating may help you, and maybe even help you stay sober. I just think it is unfair to use an "innocent bystander" (a date) to deal with my feelings of loneliness and stress.
Give yourself a break, concentrate on your recovery, then see if you are ready to 'date.'
