I liked talking to him, because we could discuss the program and all that. Prior to that ,he was sober 5 years but he relapsed when the economy went south. I am so scared that my AH will relapse because, like you, I don't ever what to go through this hell again.
but I am interested in what others have to say about this.
Other than that, I don't have much interface with addicts, I guess. People who are addicted to alcohol and drugs are usually masking something deeper.
Have any DLers dated or are dating a recovering alcoholic? If the person has addressed their issue, and is working on living life and being a productive member of society - I don’t see a problem with it.
So I'm thinking I'd better err on the side of being too picky about alcoholism, rather than not picky enough.
