Addiction is a serious disease that has taken a toll on both your mind and body.

It is only fair that you take the time to heal both of those aspects before you even think about becoming romantically involved with another person.

When you make the choice to enter an alcohol and drug rehab, you probably are not checking in with the goal of finding your soul mate.

Addiction is a disease of emotions, and once you become sober, those emotions can be confusing.

I wonder why you say you are recovering from alcoholism, however.

That, in fact, makes it sound like you subscribe to AA and disease theory.

Dating in addiction recovery can often lead to relapse if you are not ready for what lies ahead.

From the abundance of strong emotions at the beginning of a relationship, to the emotional turmoil experienced during a breakup, dating can often cause a person to put their recovery on the back burner, or worse – experience a relapse.

Sober Singles Date is a dating site dedicated specifically to adults who are practicing the principles of recovery or living a sober lifestyle.

In addition to normal search options like location, personal preferences and sexual orientation, Sober Singles Date allows people to search for members within their own 12-step program from AA to NA and more.

This is why it is often recommended that you wait at least a full year before starting to date in recovery.
