Heh - yes, that's the sort of response I'd expect from folks in AA. They're mostly good people - my wife got her 13 year coin a while back and did a little sponsoring.
I go to AA/NA regularly and my fellow addicts think I am crazy for being in a relationship...oh and that they think im not Christian...any advice family? Its lonely being a recovering addict in the fire service and LDS to boot..
If they are giving you flack about your faith though, you might want to consider picking a new AA group. Depending on your location there could be many. There might even be an LDS addiction recovery group somewhere, our program is based on the AA 12-steps. Definately shop around and go with what works for you.
Proposing marriage while going through recovery steps? Yeah, I can hear my wife yelling at you from here. Your significant other knows the person who is clawing for the light trying to get out of a hole. If you marry her now, that's the person she knows. Are you planning on clawing out of your hole forever - or do you expect to some day be out of the hole? She needs to know the person who has made it out of the hole first, before she can make a good choice. Date her for now. If she still wants you once you're clean and back on track - then you'll have a firmer foundation for marriage than a lot of people out there.
But yeah - welcome!
And maybe have a seat by the Eastern wall.
And I'd discuss the holy books with the learned men, several hours every day.
That would be the sweetest thing of all.
If I were a rich man...
