August 2013: Dumped on Valentine's Day

In my first few months of being sober, I didn’t believe the dating suggestions applied to me. I was seeing another AA member, and you could say we were on a pink cloud. I didn’t realize it at the time, but I was using men as my Higher Power. I thought as long as the two of us were staying sober together, I would be OK.

About three months after we started dating, he had to move away to go to school, so I visited him on weekends. I soon got pregnant, and things started to get rocky. He began to come off his pink cloud and felt his old habits coming back. So he did what the program suggests and got a sponsor and started working the Steps.
