I have a few friends that attend Alcoholics Anonymous meetings regularly. I’m proud of them for doing this for themselves and it’s never been an issue of contention.
I’ve had two bad experiences that are directly related to AA.
I just read a post entitled No Longer Dead and I knew immediately what this woman was dealing with based on the first half of her post.
My assumption is that the second half is her, telling herself that she will not accept this individual any longer he acquiesces to her completely legitimate and emotionally healthy demands.
I learned from my first bad experience that making my boundaries clear soon after the newly engaged AA attendee decides to attack me with their dogma usually curbs the tendency to keep after me.
The first experience was with a roommate that was in AA.
Last week we spoke about frequency of sex in order to be satisfied. I communicated that I need more physical intimacy in order to be satisfied and asked if anything was wrong and if he was attracted to me.All we know is that nothing we do seems to be good enough; everything is our fault; we are crazy.Nothing is wrong with the narcissist and he or she makes it very clear to us that are the problem.*** One does not qualify to be called "dry drunk'' is he isn't 'dry'....if he is not dry (off ALL mood-altering substances)........
