My daughter's husband, who was clean and sober for 3 years, relapsed. She called me the other night crying. She had suspected for a while that he had started drinking again and this particular night he came home literally falling down drunk. I have to say I saw it coming. Those of you who are in recovery will know what I mean when I say he had been a "dry drunk" for the past 2 years. She has 3 kids under the age of twelve and a newborn. It's so hard to watch this. I've been trying to get her to an Al-Anon meeting to help her cope with everything. I know that she blames herself even thought she doesn't say it. Even with a mother who's a recovering alcoholic she doesn't understand the addiction. He knows what he needs to do, he's been through 4 rehab programs. I called and left him a voice mail to let him know I'm here if he needed someone to talk to who understands alcoholism. Other than that I've stayed out of it. There's nothing I can do to make him want to stay sober and I wish my daughter could realize it as well. We're all leaving on Friday for our family beach week. I'm going to have a good time with my grandkids no matter what.
