Hi tiac!!! What a great post. I'm glad to hear that things are going well for you. Nice to meet you too.
I'll throw my 3 cents in on the relationship thing. I think the whole idea is to take the time for you right now. Not to rush into anything emotional.....something that could cause a set back. Take things slow for you. As you stated, this whole sobriety thing takes some adjusting.
Welcome to SR!! This site is great as I'm sure you'll soon find out for yourself.
