Ok i have been drinking lager any lager i can get my hands on or cider for 5 years now at least 4 times a week but now its everyday, i drink anything from 4 cans onwards to 24 cans a night, say if i buy 24 cans il have to drink them the same night unless i fall to sleep before there gone, theres no stopping me once i get 1 can down me which is scaring me now i dont know what to do, i dont get hangovers no more, i wake up in a morning feeling normal and fit for a day or 2 after a good drink but then all my mind can think about is a can, my first few cans or gone within 15-20 min, i went to my docs in oct 2015 and told him the situation and he just said stop drinking to me which is easier said than done, i cant sleep at night if i dont have a drink and i start sweating in bed even when i have only my shorts on. im getting worried now as i dont want to die from drink im only 25 and started getting pains in top of my legs and in my back, i feel sick all the time and cant eat properly as anyone got any advice please. thank you.

    The sweating is a type of hangover...withdrawal symptom.

    my opinion is that you should start cutting down...so instead of buying 24 cans when you go...only buy a 12 pack and a 6 pack for the first week....then just a 12 pack....

    Then rethink your situation.

    You can not stop...it is not a reasonable thought at this time.
