    That's ok, Max. You can turn it around. Have you heard of The Sinclair Method? Have a look for it on this page:

    http://patient.info/forums/discuss/useful-resources-487627

    It's what I used and I went from 300-400 drinks per month to about 12 per month.

    There is nothing there to work with Max59. Are you after help, or is this just simply a statement of fact and you have some other plan to "End your Drinking problem" permanently?

    Hello Max . I'm so pleased you have reached out here. This is a wonderful safe place to open up and find comfort . We all have different experiences and stories to tell . I've written loads of posts on here over the years , some very drunk , some after a few glasses , some sober . We all act and react differently . I'm on the Sinclair method too but with counselling also and I must say that talking with people that understand is the key . It's unlocked many things for me . I hope you can revisit this post fully tomorrow and investigate the possibilities and choices you have in moving forward . There is always some way !!!! I'm focussing my treatment in learning more and helping others in the progress I make . Sending you kind thoughts and compassion smile xx

      You are absolutely right and I second your message. I would have said the same thing. It's not easy and there are ups and downs, but as long as one wants to get better and isn't afraid to reach out, anything is possible.

      There are some "brick and mortar" Sinclair Method doctors in Texas, and at least two telemedicine providers cover the whole state. I'll PM you some links.

      Hi there max  and welcome.  I was like you too a few years ago when I joined.  Found it hard to work around the Forum.  You sound so very lost and I know it hurts.  Same here.  I have a hubs that can easily drink up to 18 pints when with his mates but at home he is happy with a pint!  I would have put him (and used to call him years ago) an alcoholic, as he would do this 4 times a week.  One of the boys you might say.  It turns out that it is me who has the problem.  Easy to down 2 bottles of wine a day.  Got it right down now to 2 units Monday to Saturday, but could easy go back to 2 bottles.  I do fall down now and then but get mad at myself next day, then start again.  But this road is a hard rock road to treck down and it is only when you come on caring forums like this that you realise that you are not a weirdo (as I thought in my case) you are a normal human being who is fighting for your life and for that you are so not alone.  I do not take any meds, I do it by sheer bloody willpower but I know if I fail too often, I will look at TSM.  This site could truly save you.

      Stay here ya here smile
