Do they ever get over it? Just I have seen a nice outing, its wine tasting and a meal for dead cheap. I haven't got my mum anything for mothers day as I was skint BUT she was an alcoholic for years and is now clean and doesn't drink now as far as I know, will this set it off again? I haven't got much money and I think this would be really fun and a nice day out, but I'm nervous. I want to see my mum drink and be able to control it. That would mean more to me than her stopping completely, that prob sounds weird but to me that would mean she can do it normally and would mean she had really got over it. This is probably a stupid question!! And you will prob all say no! haha Guess I want her to be normal!
