Just when I begin to think things will settle down something else arises. My H was about to go to his SA meeting tonight and asked if he could talk to me with me behind a closed door....there goes my stomach! He said he didn't want to say anything to me until after he spoke with this therapist about this. He proceeded to tell me that there is a woman in his SA group who is one year sober. She approached him on Saturday morning after a meeting and asked for a phone number (his) and did he ever work out because maybe they could get together and work out some time. My H said he was dumbfounded and creeped out. He didn't want to say anything to me with all that went on this weekend, so he went to therapy and ask his therapist if he in fact picked up on something that sounded like a come on and, if so, what should he do about it. She said that when there is a mixed group of men and women, women should talk to only women privately and men should only talk to men privately because anything else would be inappropriate. She then told him how to handle the situation so as to make it clear to this woman that he didn't care to have contact with her. He wanted me to know that he listened to his intuition and was taking care of it, but still it makes me wonder if there are other people in his group or any group for that matter who just show up, collect their tokens, but are really active addicts outside the group. Scary!
