How much of your past should you share? Is it wise to date another addict in recovery? What should you do if you're attracted to a problem drinker? These are important questions in any dating relationship, but even more critical for individuals who are in recovery. This Step-friendly, one-of-a-kind dating guide offers frank yet lighthearted advice about avoiding the traps, triggers, and trauma of romance in recovery. EXCERPT: "Dating in recovery has been compared to playing football without gear, running barefoot over sharp rocks, and having dental work without the benefit of painkillers. It can be the great escape, bounce you back into relapse, or trigger a new addiction."
The Easy Does It Relationship Guide shares solid advice for couples in recovery, delivered with a light touch. Mary Faulkner, a therapist and popular workshop leader, identifies the five basic topics partners argue about over and over again--money, sex, extended family, children, and time--and offers suggestions for assessing and resolving disagreements. Readers will come to see relationships as a process, always changing, often challenging, and ultimately a source of hope, strength, and joy.
