Hi.I’ve just come on this site because I know I’m a sex/Love Addict. Well, I’m an Addict full stop. I’m in AA, NA, been sober for 5 years, clean for 3 years, and still not OK. This time it’s about relationships… I feel so tired of having to work through what feels like an endless list of addictions, but I want to keep going.
Now what is hurting me at the moment is that I know the solution to my other addictions is a spiritual awakening only happening for me when I have surrendered in my step 1, and admitted that total abstinence is the way forward. I can live with that around alcohol and drugs, no problem, but to say that I have to stay single all my life is just…I don’t know…so empty!!
Saying this, if it’s better than drinking again or jumping in front of a train, which has crossed my mind lately, then I guess it could be worse! So do those in relationships recover? How do you have a relationship without relapsing? Or is it not an option? Please help!!
Thank you. H
