One of the main worries is that if one of the couple relapses it could encourage the other to do the same.

It would be extremely difficult for a recovering addict to maintain a relationship with somebody who had relapsed, but ending the romance can be hard.

The first few months of recovery are often described as an emotional rollercoaster because there is so much going on.

They can now begin to rebuild their life and get back many of the things they have lost.Romantic relationships can be a great source of happiness in sobriety, but they can also be the source of great pain.One of the worst things that an individual can do in early recovery is jump headfirst into romance.It is strongly advised that they remain focused on themselves until their sobriety is strong.Once they are settled in their new life, they can then begin to consider sharing it with somebody else.Meanwhile all the attention will be on their newly sober partner’s adjustment, with hardly a thought for how they are coping with the transition.
