This newcomer will rely on the other members of aa to help them find their feet in sobriety. Because what i suffered from, acknowledge, and am recovering from enables the beauty of my persona to persevere.
I’d be wary in general of anyone who was an addict, but everyone is different. Then give friendships an opportunity to blossom into romance. These need to be avoided. Nobody forces a junkie into using. We split 3 years ago because of domestic violence which was controlled by the amount he drank.

He became an executive at a large company, was active in his recovery and we had such plans for the future. In general, i think people can change, but with the hard stuff, it never really leaves your soul. No self-promotion.
I’ve read through the article and all the comments thus far, and it appears that hope for any kind of happy relationship with an addict/past-addict is slim to none. This would be highly dependent on several factors for me. The thing with me and my past partner two years ago now was that he would make all these promises, assure me he would take his medication and get help and do better, but i never saw him making a genuine effort to get clean, at least while we were together. But i would never not give someone a chance to be a friend because of their demons. I feel so foolish and i hate myself for being so weak. On that note, saying, “be honest,” is rude and unnecessary.

Make a decision. It can feel like the individual has just woken up to the joys of sex. This may entail that the couple do things differently; some events might even be attended by the drinking partner alone, if there is danger that the environment may be too triggering for a relapse.
Relationships and co-dependency
I was in a relationship with an addict (i’m not a drug user)and wasn’t told until she disappeared for a number of days and lost job. While others are not. But the mask slips, and in some catastrophic ways. It was a means of dealing with abuse as a child and the lasting impact on his psyche.
