Smock Pot: Rehab center or not, I hope she sticks with it this time. A friend of mine recently went to rehab for alcoholism. He joined AA, but keeps going back to the bottle after a few weeks of sobriety. He got a girlfriend after about a month of doing AA and does nothing but either complain about her or worry she'll dump him for repeatedly falling off the wagon. Do you just keep starting the steps over if you slip up?


Yes, you do. But rule 1: You do not get a girlfriend when you're trying to sober up. Or a boyfriend. They tell you not to do that in AA, and in rehab. Specifically: "Do not go try to find a significant other to 'help you with this'".

I won't get into the reasons, and I especially am not going to argue about AA, but there are very good reasons why no one advises an addict to do what he just did. Tell him he's an idiot and he needs to actually work at sobering up, if that's what he wants.
/Yes, people do fall in love while they're getting better, and sometimes it works. But most of the time, it's just another fix.

Many drug and alcohol recovery counselors were former addicts themselves.  It allows them to relate and gives them the passion to help others that are in the same position they were in.

Lindsay Lohan isn't good enough to play Lindsay Lohan in the Lindsay Lohan movie.

Thank you. The next time he biatches about her or tells me he drank, I'll take him to task.

What's truly farked up is that she is in school to be a drug/alcohol counselor, which makes me wonder if he's more of a project than a boyfriend. =/

Sounds like a codependent or enabler kind of relationship.  "If I fix people, they will love me"
