Being upfront dating

It is imperative to approach this topic honestly, like you would (hopefully) approach the rest of the relationship.Your sobriety is a part of your life and there is no need to be ashamed of the amazing work you have done to get to this point.

Beginning a new relationship too early can add to those stressors and actually tap into the parts of the brain associated with addiction.

Being upfront, if not preemptive, will help you to reduce the chance of a slip up, avoid risky surroundings for dates and weed out the people who may be uncomfortable with dating someone in recovery.

“Solid” sober time is entirely subjective as recovery is an individual process.

Try to avoid making any big decisions within your first year, like moving in together, marriage or children.

In order to achieve long-term sobriety, you have to put your program first.

However, in the past when I've used the internet to meet people I know there has been some disappointment with some average-sized guys once they realize I'm a big girl, and if at all possible would like to prevent that from happening in the future.

I really try to be up front about my weight so I don't deceive anybody and in turn protect myself from constant rejection.

Oftentimes people in recovery are apprehensive about revealing their sobriety for fear of judgment.

Facing uncharted dating territory without your usual liquid courage can increase your risk for relapse.

When I've looked up similar topics, people just say "send him a photo" or "tell him you're curvy", but what about when you've already done that?

Recovery is a time for self-care and reflection, establishing structure and controlling urges.

In therapy, you will work on assessing readiness, especially for the dating game.
