I'm not even sure why I'm asking for advice as I know I should see my doctor but I think I'm looking for some either encouragement or reassurance. I've always loved a drink but it has definitely been a problem for me in the past and felt a bit out of control. I've always held down a demanding self employed job and am now a mother to a 2 year old which really helped at first, but now I find myself drinking a bottle of wine a night and feeling completely anxious about it and convinced I have a silent liver killing disease. I try and stop all the time and have recently taken up running and have managed 2-3 days a week without alcohol but I'm finding it so hard to stop. I think I'm generally depressed and have anxiety issues that are eased and then exasperated through drinking. I find it really hard to be honest with anyone close to me about how I feel as they are either tee totallers or drinkers and I just don't feel like anyone understands. Any advice?
