I told the Doc I had a serious problem with alcoholism
and wanted to stop drinking. When he heard the admition of alcoholism
he took it seriously.
You seem to have an alcoholism problem if you need to drink every night. You should quit before it does bodily damage such as diabetis, spelling?, liver damage, heart damage and more. Most of these things are reversable in the early stages of alcoholism, but the longer you drink the more damage done the less chance of complete physical recovery.
