  • Do you mean he just recently had some drinks, or he has been putting the drinks away as in starting to drink them regularly? Any addict will usually fall back and do it again. It's rare that they put it down and never touch it again. Any professional who deals with this would say just to turn right back around and continue on your journey of not drinking, even if you did mess up, even if you got trashed, don't let that be a reason to give in to it all over again, let it be a stepping stone in to sobriety, and gain strength from it.
