I was going to give them to a friend but then wondered if that is really a friendly thing to do.
I also have this problem. After I stop drinking I got lot of drinks left in my celler.
I gave some away but still not sure whether I am doing the right thing.
It is an interesting dilemma. If we chose to quit because it has been bad for us maybe it would be bad for others.
Many people drink and even smoke with very few ill effects though. There are people who live to a very old age who drink. I think giving alcohol to someone you know to be an alcoholic would be wrong to my mind.
As with everything I think it is about balance. If our friends drink or smoke in a balanced way it probably will do them no harm. I find it easier to balance drink then smoking but I will be happy if I have no more then one of each a week or a month.
I am sure one bottle given to a responsible person will do no harm. In fact quite the opposite it will most likely only give pleasure.
I am going to go see if I can get the packet back so I can give it to a responsible friend, throwing away money is a waste.

I guess it depends on what source you go to for information.
Unfettered at last, a traveling monk,
I pass the old Zen barrier.
Mine is a traceless stream-and-cloud life,
Of these mountains, which shall be my home?
