    Same here, definitely research the Sinclair Method.  It has a 78% success rate.  You take one pill at least one hour before your first drink and over time it works on your brain’s pleasure center, blocking the pleasure. For some, they see a change in behavior in a couple months, others, when completely compliant, it takes up to a year. I have been using this medication for several months and have seen a big difference in my interest in alcohol.  I haven’t been 100% compliant as my mother was killed in a robbery in December and that threw me off for a bit. But, when I take the pills and drink, I feel different and haven’t gotten truly drunk. Please look into it.  It is truly miserable to have a drinking problem and there are other ways to beat it other than complete abstinence, which hardly works for anyone. Good luck!
