Dating during codependency recovery

Although the idea of dating people with a past history of drug and alcohol use can be a turnoff for some, it won’t be for everyone.Being honest will also help establish accountability within the relationship that can help your new dating partner help you stay healthy.Addicts in early recovery get stressed quickly, over-emotional, moody, demanding and sometimes overbearing.It’s not going to be an easy process and you will need to be patient and loving but do NOT lose yourself in the process or you risk becoming angry and resentful!You definitely need to be a strong person as there is always a lack of trust when knowing someone’s past history.An addict that has been clean for a couple of months or even years will have to understand that it takes time to build up trust.

While there are a lot of benefits to dating those in recovery, it can also lead to risky situations.It really is a lot to take on in understanding the process of addiction and recovery.You will need help to be able to cope with dating and loving an addict or a recovering addict.Addicts will have broken so many people’s trust and destroyed so many relationships making it very hard for others to trust and act like everything is back to normal.As addict’s experience various degrees of trauma in active addiction, they often find it hard with life challenges that non-addicts might not.

While this is just a suggested time period, many treatment professionals and old-timers have seen the consequences of dating in very early recovery.
