As COM says. difficult child coming up on 6 months' sobriety, seemed like he was doing great and even starting to help others with their relapses. husband and I planned a long weekend hiking in the mountains many months ago. To celebrate this milestone we invited difficult child to come along. We were to fly up tomorrow night. This morning he called from the parking lot of detox to say he came home to his sober living house drunk last night and his choice is to immediately check into detox or he's kicked out. He started drinking again "4 or 5 days ago" and has been drinking "pretty much every night." Except I saw him 3 days ago and he was basking in my praise for how well he's done. He even slipped in a few other good things he did that I didn't know about. He can't come back here. He knows that. He didn't ask. His boss offered to help him with a place to stay until he can get $ together for an apt. I told him it was his choice but I thought other than this relapse it seems the house he is at has been great support for him. I told him relapses are a part of addiction and all he can do is learn from them and not drink today. He decided to check himself into detox. I didn't yell or make a big scene about his dishonesty the other night, or in general. To be fair, I didn't have to. He apologized for it repeatedly before I got the chance. Still going on the trip without him, still going to have a lovely weekend. But I'm still really angry. I get relapses, but the dishonesty...confounds me.
