Alcoholics online dating

You need to be thinking about the adjustments YOU need in YOUR life while you're learning how not to spend time drinking.

Tends to end badly, even if the person doesn't drink. Sure, as long as the person is working some kind of program. One of them is very active in the community, has a great attitude, and is genuinely a great guy (and is hung like a horse :p) - I'd date him in a second if it would work in a long-term sense, but we no longer live in the same city.

The other friend, who has been in AA for several years is often moody and distant, and those are qualities I wouldn't want in a partner, regardless of alcoholism. Well, I usually like a nice glass of beer when I eat. In my family, bourbon is one of the four food groups.

Less than a year sober, and I'd be reluctant, I think. I wouldn't reject someone out of hand, but I confess that if someone admitted they had a problem with alcohol -- and admitting is undeniably a good and necessary step -- it would make a difference if they were off the sauce for five minutes, five days, five months, or five years. Sorry, I'm going to consider you a current (problem) drinker. Probably a bit shakey, but committed to recovery and if I liked you, I'd see you again, though I'd be cautious and we'd be taking it slow. No problem, though I would change my own behaviors to respect and support your recovery (not go to drinking places with you, not drink around you). Over that first year I became very different, more present. We needed to either reinvent our relationship as a married couple or leave each other for greener pastures.

I can't speak from experience, but I've always assumed that committing to recovery and following through is freaking HARD.
