Hello, this is my first post. I have been drinking excessively for over 35 years. Wine. Up to a bottle a night. Blood tests are usually normal or slightly elevated but I know they don't tell the whole story. I've been referred to community addiction at my request but they only tell me what I already know. I was hoping to be prescribed Naltrexone but have to be abstinent first. If I could stop drinking I wouldn't need help! If I smoked there'd be no stigma and a range of readily available treatments. I never thought I'd be in this situation, unable to stop a harmful habit. I want to be able to stop before I get to the point of no return. How do I conquer my own lack of self control? Please help me.
