Without going into all the details, I recently started dating a great girl who joinged AA just before we met (not for drinking every day, but for drinking too much when drinking). Her sponsor has advised her to not date now, as she should be putting herself first. I respect and understand that... unfortunatley that leaves us in ackward limbo for the time being but that's beside the point. I don't know anyone who's gone through AA so I'm not really sure what to expect, even though she and I have talked about several aspects of the program. Anyone have experiences they'd like to share? I'm wondering how long the 12 steps might take. I'm sure that varies wildy from person to person, but I really have no idea. Of course I'd love to provide any support I can as well. Hopefully we can take things slowly... we'll see what happens with the relationship. So if anyone has and AA thoughts, I'd like to hear them.
