So I've known someone for a while (icefish a year) in a professional capacity and we've been seeing each other for a couple of weeks. He has told me used to have alcohol problems but that it us under control and he goes to AA meetings. I saw him in his professional capacity last night and he stank of booze, we chatted on the phone later in the eve for an hour of so and made plans to meet on Saturday afternoon.

Usually we text and email a few times throughout the day but nothing today. I'm concerned he's gone off the rails and is drinking. I want to help him but can't allow myself to get too involved if he is going to behave like this I have a ds with sn and he is my first priority, wwyd? Should I cut my losses send walk away before done oboe fetch hurt?

'Cut my losses and walk away before someone gets hurt' - stupid autocorrect!

Cut your losses. It's only been a couple of weeks. Only he can change and help himself. Run!

Cut your losses.

It clearly isn't under control unless someone spilt a pint on him!

Get out now before it is too late.

I do need to don't I? Such a shame, 3 years on my own and this is my first attempt at getting back in the saddle! Go me!!!

It's great that you felt confident to get back in the saddle. It's just that this is the wrong one. Use this as a big fat hint to enjoy trying out a few saddles before you actually go riding!

Thanks Finola, I'm certainly glad I didn't actually go riding wink,

Really sad for you, but you're right. He is probably drinking and you don't want to get involved. You can't help.
