Dating in aa
And considering I was all three, there wasn’t a chance in hell she was going to turn me out. That’s a sanctity I can’t violate.” None of the men in AA had ever said that.When you’re dating another alcoholic, there is that instant affinity: you both speak the same language of disease and recovery.So when you break up with somebody, don’t be surprised when they end up dating your sponsor or sponsee.
When I relapsed for the umpteenth time and ended up with a militant black lesbian for a sponsor, she was very clear that I was not going to fuck my way through the rooms this time around.
But when it goes bad, as it inevitably does when you’re dealing with two crazy selfish alcoholics, then you’ve accidentally shat where you eat.
And then you have to split up territory: “Okay,” you’ll find yourself saying.
But we can work around that.” But she never touched me.
She didn’t date straight girls, newcomers, or crazy people.
