    For the first 4 or so years, no alcohol in the house. DH would drink with friends somewhere else or on business trips etc. DH occasionally drinks at the house now and has a bottle liquor in the house, it doesn’t bother me anymore.

    There is still alcohol in my house. Just because I stopped drinking doesn’t mean that everyone that I live with has as well. They drink responsibly and are respectful of my decision to abstain. I have become comfortable with it and I guess that is a good thing. After all, we live in a world where alcohol is every where and you cant go around avoiding it forever.

    That being said . . . I’m not sure keeping alcohol in the house as a means of proving something to yourself (or anyone else for that matter) serves much of a purpose. I think its a little foolish actually. If I lived by myself or with people who don’t drink there would be no alcohol in my home. Period. What would be the point? I think trying to prove your own strength over alcohol is a waste of time, especially if you have already come to terms with the fact that you have a problem.

    I would ditch the booze. Just my two cents.

    When I first quit I got rid of all the alcohol in my house but now that I’m past my daily struggles with not drinking my wife has a few bottles of wine in the house. They just sit there gathering dust and are more decoration than temptation for me. Those first couple months…..um, that would not have been the case.
