Jail and Alcohol :(

 My alcoholic boyfriend of two years went to jail this past July for his fourth DUI and gets out in April, so he's had nine months of being sober. He swears that he won't lift any alcohol to his lips, and do everything in his power to not do so. I'm just scared he will go back to his old ways, I've seen it before, granted him not drinking for nine months is the longest he's gone. Has anyone been in a similar situation? What was the outcome? Any feedback is appreciated, thanks!!! :)

My Bf went to jail for two months and said the same thing, but he did not change. Remember, your BF will not drink for 9 months, not because he chose to not drink, but because he has no choice but to not drink. Not drinking anymore has to be a choice and he will most likely drink again unless he gets help.
