Meet others who are commited to an alcohol free lifestyle.
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. a "true alcoholic" involved in the AA program, works through twelve steps and generally gets an AA sponsor for support. You do not go into AA and after time become "recovered." AA does not "teach one" how to be able to drink non-alcoholically. It teaches you how to live life on life's terms and helps you discover how and why you drank that way to begin with.

If the person I am dateing can not attend or be around drinking than we don't have much in common. I want someone who can go have fun with out the alcohol. He knows that I will have a drink on occasion, but, I am not going out to get drunk anymore. I always felt guilty if I had a glass of wine at dinner ..it's kinda like waving a big piece of chocolate cake in front of a dieter. It all depends on how spiritually comfortable you are within yourself. heck i have even offered him a drink every once in awhile when i do see him... And, that is exactly what I am hoping for with this guy. how long he has been on the program..how he came to be on the program... Again, you NEVER become "recovered" if you are a true alcoholic.
But if your a non-drinker shouldn't be a problem ... It was a bit of a shock at first, but the more I thought about it, the more I admired his desire to want to better himself, and not be stuck in a really bad downward spiral. The AA program and the 12 steps are a way of life that we could all benefit from. and he knows he can have a social drink and it wont put him back to where he was before.... I want him to be able to go out, and if he feels like it, have a drink, just one, and be ok with that. he did this for himself 6months before i started seeing him again.... it will give you a little more insight into if he is serious about kicking this habit... The one thing that ALL alcoholics have in common is once they put alcohol into their system, there is no guarentee what will happen.
