    Hi All, Im new here. I was drinking up about 10 - 12 beers a day. I started drinking heavily after my daughter was born 12 weeks prem. Her mother left me for a man whos son laying in the hospital bed next to my little girl had an operation. It hurt quite a bit. I became really bad a few months afer that, drinking from when I woke up until I went to bed. I booked myself into a medical detox and gave up for a month. That was 8 years ago. Recently though, I went through bad anxiety over some bad shit. I started drinking up to 18 beers a day on top of anti-anxiety tablets. 1 day I feel over smashing my face and thought, fuck this! I found this site and managed to taper off 2 beers a day at a time. The first few days were shitty, sweats shakes, insomnia and worse anxiety. Im 10 days abs now, and taking each day as it comes. This site has helped me so much.

            Welcome to the site. Lots of good people on this site with great advice. Good thing you understand the potential problems that can come along with drinking. Just be sure to keep your drinking in check. Big things are don't let it affect your job or get into legal trouble such as DUI.

            Use Abstar to track your drinks. Set daily and weekly limits. Your going to do great

              The thing is, I cant just have 1 or 2. It ends up 8 or 12. Im better off abstaining for now until I feel Ive got it under control. Thanks Curt.
