My husband is a successful recovered alcoholic. I need to substitute the wine. Thank you.

It depends on the recipe, but there are often some fine alternatives.
Water is usually a good replacement unless the primary function of the wine is to add acidity. In that case, diluted vinegar or diluted citrus juice usually acts as a fine substitute for wine.
Best of luck.
Exactly- a little lime juice goes a long way.

I have a terrible reaction to wine so I leave it out and add broth and/or water.

As BB says, broth & water are good options.
If the recipe needs or can stand a sweet note, try white grape juice or some other fruit juice...diluted if necessary.

Depending on what you are making, a squeeze of fresh lemon will add a bright note (for example to sauteéd mushrooms). It's what I use when I don't have wine leftover and don't want to open a bottle for a small amount.
Thank you so much. Appreciate all answers. Very helpful.

Um, he is not recovered he is "in recovery" and will be for the rest of his life, or one day at a time.
