    I feel bad for even hoping he and I can be drunk again and party.

    When you're 50 and using words like "party", it may be time for you to check in somewhere, too.

    Recent family member just did time in rehab as well. He was drinking a 26er and 24 a day.........it's a learning process to figure out how to "hang out" with the person again. You don't want to demean their progress......but their issues are their own. Just be respectful and go out for coffee with them.

    I misworded that - he's still a family member. But recently went through rehab. It's a learning process for ME to not offer up a beer, nor have any around him.

    Not having any around him will just make him feel self conscious about it. Drink like you always have. He has to re-learn life you don't... aside from the not offering part of course.

    Much as I always appreciate a cold beer, I'd rather have his company and not make him feel uncomfortable until he gets through this. Never a struggle for me to go without........just used to it with him. I'll give it some time before I go from a coffee to a beer in front of him. It's just respectful.
