Hi Everyone, I have been worried about my drinking for the past 20 years and over the past 5 years have been trying to stop. I usually stop for a few months, but one drink and I start again. I am not a blackout drinker, but when I start I drink every night. Over the last few years when I have started to drink after stopping for a few weeks or months I loose complete control and drink every night, probably about 10 units a night. Every time a relapse it gets harder to stop and it is making me feel over emotional and depressed. Should I go top the Doctor? I have been previously over the years with pains in my side, but I think I want them to ask about my drinking and for them to tell me to stop, a cry for help I suppose.
