Everyone is in the lifelong process of discovering who they are.
A recoveringalcoholic has already made some significant progress in this process and is coming to grips with the truth of the situation.
If, however, you are yourself an alcoholic in denial or drinking of alcohol is a HUGE part of your life and therefore you expect it to be an active part of any relationship that you are in..probably the answer is NO as you will not be a good influence for the person in recovery.
You’ve met someone you really like, they are intelligent and charming.
It can be very hard, especially at the beginning of a relationship,to leave someone you really care for, even love because he/she has a drinking problem.
