I think that your ex gf is most likely seeking her own level.
She is attracted to and wants to be involved with someone in active addiction, and she may have a history of growing up in a family effected by addiction.
I often think this is why people say "be yourself." It's really because the other side wants to see your red flags flapping in the wind from a safe distance.
You don't understand why she would choose someone with so many issues over someone responsible like you, but you know the possible answer(s) already.
If she previously said it wasn’t an issue and you didn’t do anything to make it an issue (ie., talk ad nauseam about being in recovery cuz that does get really old)... However, as someone who has been in multiple codependent and emotionally manipulative, relationships I would encourage you to see her choice in a positive light.
Once she realized that you have a Higher Power, and that she was not it, and that she could not influence and control you, she found someone in denial that could be more easily manipulated.
Maybe she likes "fix it" projects - she wants to fix him and make him a better person.
No matter how far down the scale we have gone, we will see how our experience can benefit others.
She said she won't date an alcoholic She wasn't honest about why she broke up, obviously. She likely had another reason or just didn't feel it with you.
