What you need to keep in mind when hosting a party with a recovering alcoholic

Consult the sober guest on whether it is okay to serve them water instead.

What you need to know:

  • If there are outside caterers on duty, ask the guest if it is okay to let them know about the situation so they don’t offer the alcohol.
  • A party in which drinking alcohol is the main activity can be overwhelming for a recovering guest.
  • Ask them to come with company. This will allow them to pick someone they would be comfortable with, in such circumstances.

Alcoholism is a frustrating and burdening condition and can affect anyone. Even if you escape the grip of the addiction, someone close to you may not be so lucky.
