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

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...
