DEAR ABBY: "Robert" and I met four years ago and fell head-over-heels in love. At the time, he was two years clean and sober and attending meetings. Due to his hectic work schedule, he stopped attending the meetings.
Robert prided himself on his sobriety, so imagine my shock when I found an empty liquor bottle buried in the trash and three more under the bed. I I didn't know what to say to him or how to react.
I told Robert I knew he was drinking again. He said he didn't want to discuss it, so I didn't push.
