    Hello everyone,

    First time posting here so I’ll give a little background. I’m 28, a tax accountant, my daughter is due this week, and I am a complete alocholic mess. I’ve tried quitting several times and I usually last awhile (30-60 days) but always end up going back to the bottle. I’m a binge drinker, I can not drink for 4 or 5 days easily but when I do drink, I really drink.

    I woke up at 1:44 AM this morning on the couch, still in my clothes. I had a 10 minute phone call with my brother yesterday, anda 20 minute call with my Dad. I only know this because its in my phone history. I was home sick, and I don’t remember my wife coming home from work. This morning, she told me she obviously wasn’t enough and she really hoped my daughter will be enough for me to stop.

    So, I’m making another go at it. I’ve made an appt. with my doctor to check on getting some meds…antabuse, campral, whatever. What are everyone expeirences with these? My big problem is that when I quit, there’s always an end…a time where I’ll be able to drink again. I need to somehow take that out of the equation.
