Would you ever date a recovering alcoholic?

Would you ever date someone who used to but no longer be an alcoholic?


Most Helpful Girl

  • Anythings possible...but with eyes wide open...as their behavior may be stunted regarding their emotional growth - so some of their responses and reactions to every day living may not be typical. If you've educated yourself to some degree and can recognize how to be most helpful to their continued health...sure. And recognize that some may be continually struggling and others more adaptable to their new environment.

    Me - I'd want to know they have been sober at least one year before dating them.

    Good luck.

  • I dated a recovering cocaine addict before ...as long as they aren't all moody (a lot of [former] addicts have this moodiness about them) then I would date them.
