This is the 3rd or 4th thread in the past few weeks on this subject.
At the risk of repeating myself, true it is an unnecessary temptation, however, that being said, for people that are going to AA meetings, working their program, etc., being around it should NOT be a problem. That includes going to restaurants, etc., where alcohol is sold and served.
Alcoholics do not expect those around them that do not have addictive personalities to abstain just because of them.
And, since this is a soap, and not real life, all these people have more than enough money to go out and buy alcohol if they so desire.
