Can a Person Who Was a Cocaine Addict Drink Alcohol Occasionally After 6 Months of Rehab?

Question by kat: Can a person who was a cocaine addict drink alcohol occasionally after 6 months of rehab?
My husband is getting out of a 6 month drug rehab program on Friday. I want to know if it is ok to allow him to drink alcohol or not. Alcohol was never a problem for him, cocaine was his only addiction. I do not drink very often. I will maybe have 1 or 2 drinks every couple of months. I just wanted to know if I should ban all alcohol from our home? I just need some guidance on this one. Serious, helpful answers please.

I don’t think so, as your husband has a addictive personality, and should stay away from any sort of habit such as drinking, gambling, etc, that can become toxic. I think since you don’t drink much alcohol anyway, it’s better to be safe than sorry on this one. If you go out with some girlfriends without you husband, you can have one, as long as you don’t have a addictive personality.
