Kate and Jeremy met in 2008, when she was 18 and he was 23, at an Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meeting.After meeting, Jeremy spent six months wishing he had gotten Kate's number.
Many times, both partners were drinking and doing drugs, or one was using while the other acted as an enabler.
I just knew I wanted to know her more.: Yeah, so, growing up I had a solid family.
A lot of support, super loving, would do anything for you.
“'Two sickies don’t make a welly,’ my 80-year-old sponsor used to say.” According to James, a 33-year-old photographer from Los Angeles who’s been sober for eight years, when he first came to AA he listened to what his sponsor told him and religiously avoided dating women in the program.
He didn’t date anyone at all for the first six months—he was in a Salvation Army men’s rehab anyway, so it wasn't like he had much of a choice.
