One of my friends has recently been battling alcoholism, completed a 28 day rehab program, and has been doing very well. Do you think it is a red flag if this person uses tequila or other alcohols in his recipes? Just wondering.....

So you don't think it is strange that an alcoholic would be using alcohol for recipes? A lot of other people I asked were not concerned either. This makes me feel relieved.
Thanks so much for your honest and experienced answer. I really appreciate it.
Thank you for your perspective, jlpark. I definitely think that this could be true for some people. I really appreciate your answer.
If you worked in a treatment center for as many years as I have you would see that really most people's lives are not unique when it comes to this. Denial is one thing that leads to this kind of thinking. In treatment we call it thinking errors.
One hundred percent agree Penny!!
Thanks, IJR112. I thought so, too.
I will read your hub! We were actually away on family vacation when this happened and it wasn't the person's house. So, maybe, it wasn't such a bad sign, but worried me a bit.....
I neglected the HOLISTIC approach to which Penny refers; didn't think of it; her last statement should probably hold true and is probably discussed throughout the 12 steps, exp 10th step. Encourage that your friend join a 12 step group. and follow up
Thank so much. This is very heartfelt and good advice. This person is a family member and we are all long distance (on recent vacation together), so showing support is a bit more challenging, but we are trying very hard to provide it!
