I went for a walk
And had a long talk
With myself about thinking and walking
When with an elegant swerve
I tripped over the curve
Now at walking I'm thinking of balking
The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you really are. - Carl Jung

Hi, I completely new to this, so forgive me if I’m posting in the wrong place! My husband is a recovering alcohol (hasn’t had a drink in 6 yrs). He’s had really bad flu for last 5 days, and had started taking Night Nurse, and I’m really worried this is going to set him back as it contains a small amount of alcohol. But he’s got through 2 bottles in 3 days. Should I be worried? Any advice welcome please!

Hello Louise. I can feel your anxiety. I think a lot depends on him! What does he think himself? And is he taking it appropriately, or necking it? I've been sober for 2.5 years, but I still use cough medicines and mouthwash which contain alcohol, and I drink "alcohol free" drinks whick contain up to 1% alcohol - none of these have sent me into a relapse. However no one addict's recovery is quite like another's...

Thanks for getting back to me. He thinks I’m stressing about nothing. But he is taking much more than he’s meant to, already on the second bottle in just a couple of days, but only meant to take 20mls at night! I’m just so worried as we have young children, and he’s done so well, I’d just hate for him to relapse now! He has a really addictive nature in general, not just with alcohol. Don’t want to treat him like a child,but I just want to hide the bottle!
