[Girl]friend of Bill

by Karen Nagy | 24 February 2014
Category: Addiction
Being in a new relationship is hard enough, but if the person you're dating is a recovering alcoholic or addict, there may be more to consider than just mutual interests and attraction. For Karen Nagy, dating a recovering alcoholic felt, in some ways, like she was seeing someone "from another planet"-with his own language, culture, and social behaviours. With humour, compassion, and a great respect for what it takes to recover from an addiction, this first-of-its kind field guide offers an "inside scoop" on what people do in all those Twelve Step meetings, why they need a sponsor, what a sponsor is, and why phrases such as "Live and Let Live" and "Easy Does It" keep creeping into your conversations. Nagy offers twelve key points that you need to know about dating a person in recovery. She also helps you identify the warning signs of developing your own codependent tendencies by playing into your partner's addictive thinking and behaviour-and tells you what to do about it. By gaining a greater understanding of your companion's recovery program, you can help him or her stay sober, learn how to deal with character flaws, and also build your confidence in the potential for a healthy, successful relationship.
