Our expert says:
Stop saying you "can't stop". You can, but you haven't done so, this far. So it's accurate to say you HAVEN'T stopped yet. A competent and well-informed psychiatrist should be a ble to help with medications like Acamprosate and others, and working with a good local practical psychologist ( preferably one of the CBT, Cognitive-behaviour Therapy type ( as the analytically oriented type are useless ), should help. But essentially, only you can decide to stop, and what is far more important, to stay stopped. Others can help you to do that --- you know it damages you and your child, and that you need to stop. Get more help, and never stop, working as hard as you can with that help, to stay stopped. Do not give up and stop convincing yourself that you CAN'T --- many others have stopped, and there's no reason why you can't do that too
