    Jsvikie you don't deserve this.hang on in there get some sleep then re-asses tomorrow. Help is available make use of it,all of it.You need help with you're mental health condition as well as your alcohol addiction. It isn't your fault so don't beat yourself up about this.I've been there,almost lost everything but I managed to get some counseling while still drinking.It took a while about a year I think.I'm 54 now and started drinking when I was 15,so there is hope.Just be honest with you self and all those around you about your drinking and that you are desperate for help to find a way out.

    Be lucky I'm sure you can do it my heart goes out to you,you are not as alone as you may think,this happens to a lot of people.

      You do have hope ,you wouldn't be writing this if you had no hope. I am 3 years ahead of you and have only been off it for 3 months. The fact that my liver count was into four figures helped me along a bit. Have you had yours checked recently? About how much do ya normally drink or does it vary day to day? Let me know so I can share some stuff with you. I know I ain't out of the woods yet and probably won't ever be. But at the moment,I managed to get some family back and have just started a job (don't know how long it'll last very scary).

      Please keep in touch

    Dear jsvkie, hi, try not to feel too despondent, you are in no way a bad person or a lost cause.... you can get better, you need to and you deserve to.... it is never, ever, ever, ever.... too late to give up alcohol, no matter how many tries it takes, or how long.... addiction is not a fun state of mind, by the time you realize, it is too late, I was a hopeless alcoholic for many years, I am now ok, and I still wake up grateful every single day....

    Ask if you could be taken into rehab, you need to rest your mind and your body, no matter how many times it takes ( and it can be a great deal ) keep trying again and again, you WILL DO IT... ,

    You will NEVER be worth less than anyone else, nobody can judge you, you are as.important as every other single person....

    Please get help, I wish you all the luck in the world, take care, kind regards, Deirdre xxx

    Hello jsvkie. THe others have replied really well and it is obvious that you are under immense pressure and feel SO guitly about everything in your life. Professional help and guidance is the way and perhaps not only GPs or doctors? Alternative routes, ie. meditation or self healing alternative evening classes if there any in your area? I cannot say that I have used this but it is just an idea I suddenly have. All the best and keep trying to survive!
