    Hi Sue 

    I’ve been there. I have cut down from over 20 units a day of alcohol to 6/7 units a day and some days none others days just 2 units. Simply. Go to the doctors and you will get tablets for a week of detox and some heavy vitamins. It’s not too tough. A few shakes and disturbed nights but after that week only stick to very low alcohol drinks (ie beer). I don’t allow myself anything stronger unless I’m on a night out or have friends visiting. 

    When you get a craving literally distract yourself. You don’t need to go to AA if you don’t want to. You don’t need to visit anywhere if you don’t want to. But you can get this help from the doctor should you not want to be super open about it with the other groups. Seriously get a little help though. They don’t judge and are there to help. The sleep and appetite will come back for sure. I hope this helps pal. Give it a go and good luck xx

    Hi I used to drink 2 liters of straight vodka plus strong cider 24/7. I developed Korsakoff's syndrome in 2011 now disabled because of it. I spent 6 weeks in hospital recovering and now on medication for the rest of my life due to brain damage caused by drinking. The depression you feel is because of the drink it causes depression when you crave it. You need serious help before you also develop Korsakoff's syndrome. Look it up I was diagnosed in 2011 and have been soba sinice then. I lost my home nearly lost my family but did beat it. I am now 48yr old and all I can say is IT IS NOT WORTH IT !! Get help before it kills you and never say it won't happen to you because it can !! Don't be scared or embarrassed it is an illness you have ! Get it treated if you want to live and that is FAST !! I am registered Disabled you don't have to be !!
