We are having a large group of friends over this coming weekend. One of the guests is an old family friend who recently moved back here after being gone for 6 years.
Here is the dilemma. She is a recovering alcoholic with almost 2 years soberity. Admittedly she doesn't put her self in positions that could cause her to falter.
Our gathering is an end of summer type of BBQ and we had antcipated having beer and mixed drinks. In support of her, I decided not to have alcohol. While everyone is mostly supportive, I have heard some grumblings about it.
She called me and told me she would be fine even if there was alcohol there. She doesnt want to be the cause of any hard feelings from anyone else.
My gut says no alcohol and if other friends get upset, too bad. But at the same time I am usually not one to accommodate only one person and ignore the rest.
What would you do? Or am I just over thinking it all?
