“This is how it’s going to be—sitting in church basements, listening to people talk about trying to stay sober.” After getting sober in 2007, Hamm’s life was far from over.He began organizing summer beach trips for people in the recovery community.Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc. I have been told that it only takes two people to hold a meeting. He kind of fluffed it off, as he is a family friend until I earnestly told him, "John, you don't understand, I'm drinking a LOT of wine"!Hopefully you will all have fun meeting singles and try out this online dating thing... Someone told me once that a drunk of a stockbroker and a washed up alcoholic doctor were the first two to hold a meeting. and it is for that reason that I enjoy talking to people who have recovered, or are trying to. Robert When one is an alcoholic they do not get the concept of a social drink.......does not compute. He kind of snapped his head around and asked, "Just how much wine we talking about here"?” A new wave of sober social apps, Sober Grid, Clean Fun Network and Sober, are setting out to make the online territory a lot easier for non-drinkers to navigate.
Love in Recovery "Sober Friends & Love for Single Adults in Recovery" This site is clearly focused on bringing together singles in recovery.The psychiatrist patiently explained what the alcohol was doing to my body. That night I took myself alone and scared to my first AA meeting. But being rigourously honest from the start, and adopting the 12 steps completely into my life, and learning how to live properly all over again saved my life. I'm a totally re-created and brand new woman who loves this life very much. I'm just curious about whether or not there are any 12 step type programs that don't involve so much of the religious stuff that AA seems to?I never looked back, and I never ever took another drink. AA is not about stopping drinking, as much as it is about how to live correctly. Since it takes 90 days for the toxins and chemicals to leave your body, I can tell you it was honestly day 94 when I put a big black X on my calendar that I realized, I had a happy day, and I felt good and I did not want a drink. Do you know when I first got sober, I couldn't walk properly? I think that part of the program may turn some people away, if they're not God going folk.....The site encourages its members to: “Keep your recovery first, in order to make it last!”Users can opt to maintain their home group as a safe space by not dating people in that group.
