Sober dating ideas
One of the first things to recognize if you are sad during this holiday is that we are enough on our own – are enough on your own, and learning to love yourself is one of the greatest gifts recovery can offer.
People who suffer from Alcohol Use Disorder (AUD) commonly depend on external sources to feel good, and Valentine’s Day can be very triggering for some people.
Such realizations and insights don’t come overnight, and they don’t come in a matter of weeks (or even months).
Hence, the rule of thumb that people in recovery not date for the first year of their sobriety.
Utilizing a sober monitoring tool like Soberlink is a great way to share your sobriety with people in your recovery network while helping you to remain accountable for your clean time.
Remember, you never have to walk this path alone, even on Valentine’s Day.
