Do you think it is strange for a recovering alcoholic to cook with tequila?


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.

    Peeples, I was thinking the same thing about the temptation. I would think that if a person was really sober, they would not want to be around alcohol at all... Thank you for your response.

    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.....

    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!
