Dating drug addict recovering
Dating is one of those things that can really change the course of someone’s recovery.
Going this route has its own complications, but it does neutralize the issue of having to disclose one’s recovery status.
This is one of the major issues faced by former addicts. It’s a tricky situation — but the essential thing is to never feel forced by shame or remorse into disclosing something. If you are not in control, then you are (once again) essentially being ruled by the addiction.
Should they tell someone new about their past issues? Perhaps the most important aspects of recovery self-disclosure are your motivations for doing so, and the spirit in which the person you’re telling receives it. nor should you blurt it out simply to be ‘ruthlessly honest’ when the information may not even be relevant.
But what about clean and sober people who don’t attend any type of meetings, or those who do but want to branch out of their circle?
Personally, I am pretty up front about being in recovery for alcoholism.
