Jack drinks alcohol?
« on: March 02, 2018, 10:54:31 PM »
There have been a few episodes recently in which Jack had a drink and today's was a very large one.  Please set me straight since maybe I'm not remembering correctly but isn't he a recovering alcoholic?

I know that he had a major story line with prescription pill dependency a few years back but didn't he swear off booze as well?

Is this just revised history under the new writing regime?

Jack always has a drink now and then.   I don't think he ever quit drinking completely.  Ever so often this very question about Jack pops up.

Past writing regimes have had Jack drink, often with him explaining to the person he's with, that his problem was with pills, not alcohol.

When he first detoxed off the pills, Jack was off everything including alcohol for several years.  Then he "slipped" when he drank with Gloria that one night they first got together. Since then I guess he feels it is OK to drink now and then.
