Hi all. I am desperate to get some advice on my alcohol issue so any information would be appreciated. I have just turned 28. I have had an issue with my drinking for 2/3 years. It started off slowly imaginable to help with my anxiety and now it's become really high. I am drinking between 8units being the lowest to 15/17 units being the highest. I occasionally go over to the 20 units once a month if I am out partying.
I started though a hard time. It helped with my anxiety which I have had now over 7 years. I have been on steraline a antidepressant 25mg for 3/4 months which helped with my anxiety drastically, but as I started to feel in anxious due to the medication I became more social-able which meant more drinking.
I don't suffer any major withdrawals in the day, I am an evening drinker but i do get anxiety. My main reason for concern is if I just stop drinking something bad will happen to me. I'm almost starting now to to become obsessed with looking for signs of withdrawal, it's making me really miserable. I have been to my GP in the past about it but was told to seek alcohol support which I did but found it only to be talking therapy.
My mother was a chronic alcoholic when I was growing up and I don't want drinking to affect me the way it did her. Can anybody offer peace of mind to be how I can tackle this?
Thanks so much.
