Our expert says:
He has a serious drinking problem, and would not make a good mate. He is married to alcohol, not women. If he has managed to stay dry since January ( of course you only have his word for this ) you might want to encourage him to continue to stay dry, and maybe to join AA, but be cautious about taking him back as a close friend, let alone a lover or live-in.
The "everyone deserves a second chance" idea is not actually part of the constitution. Not everyone deserves a second chance - would you offer one to a serial killer, or to Bin Laden ?
And after a second chance, does anyone really deserve a 4th, 7th ot more chances ?
If he's serious, let him demonstrate it by remaining dry, and maybe meeting you socially for coffee now and then.
