Hi everyone, I'm new here, however I can be in bit of a denial when it comes to alcohol intake.
I've drank till I've passed out since I was 18yrs old. However I've never had alcohol before my 18th birthday.
I am now 28yrs old, and I drink over 8/9 cans 440ml 6% cider (scrumpy jack) every day.
I want to quit, but trying to quit leads a few things, 1. I cannot sleep so I often go to work the next day tired with no sleep and 2. anxiety, especially feeling my heart pump (cos I can feel that very vividly, and fear that It'll stop and I'll have a heart attack), this mainly stems from the fact my dad died of one. As a result, I get even more anxiety and cant sleep further more. 3. I suffer bad heartburn that ONLY occurs when I dont drink, so I drink to avoid it.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to the best course for cutting down and stopping all together? Be most helpful, thanks.
