My brother-in-law, Bob is a recovering alcoholic. Seven years ago he began drinking again. His wife, Louise, is very strong willed and would never enable. She told him to stop immediately or she was taking their daughter and leaving. He went to meetings and hasn't had a drop since. We went on vacation with them last week. Bob took his boat and when he and my husband went out on it, Bob had a 6-pack of beer for my husband. My husband was uncomfortable drinking in front of him and asked him how he handles it. Bob said he would LOVE to have a beer, but knows he cannot stop at one. He knows that if he had that one beer, he would lose everything, his family, home and business. Bob is lucky to be married to Louise, she saved his life.
