Hi all, I currently drink a bottle of red wine each evening and perhaps 1.5 bottle each Saturday & Sunday and have done so for many years. Now and again I will take Mon-Thur off but not often, so i know I can do it but lack the willpower to do this each week due to habits.
I really want to cut down or ideally cut it out altogether but have read about possible dangers from just stopping outright so thought I could taper it out over a weekend or so. I thought of changing to Guinness this weekend, doing 3 cans tonight, 2 cans tomorrow and 1 can Sunday, is that a sensible approach for a wine drinker?
I wouldn't worry so much but this winter and for several years now, each time I catch what appears to be a cold, I stop drinking. The following nights are always terrible with night sweats, confusion and racing mind, I wonder if its not the actual cold at all but withdrawal from the alcohol?
Any advice much appreciated, I've tried hypnotherapy downloads such as Georgia Foster and more recently Alcohol explained by William Porter, but not with much success. I'm looking at Give Up Alcohol by Mark Bowden but hesitant due to failure previously..
