THE DIRTY ARMY: Hi Nik! Love the advice you give to women because its honest so I was hoping you could help me with a situation. I’m a recovering addict (clean for over a year!) and I’ve recently started dating again. I met a guy who is really sweet, funny, successful, etc. BUT he too is a recovering addict and still hangs around some of his old friends, who are always drinking and partying. This worries me because he’s relapsed before. I really like him but I’m wondering if these people are going to set him back again and if I should just end it before it gets serious. I don’t want to chance my sobriety but maybe im being too guarded. Your advice would be very welcome Nik. And Happy Birthday!
The only reason you are with him is because he is an addict and has addict friends. Don’t get lost in the falsehood of your relationship. Two
addicts wrongs don’t make a right.- nik
