Our expert says:
Its not helpful to argue about how bad an alcoholic one is - you're a problem drinker, and that's enough for you to deserve proper treatment. AA is a good first step, but you should also see a shri nk with an interest in alcohol ( and did you say also prescription drug ? ) problems, so you're under proper expert supervision. A psychiatrist could aso take proper account of your other problems, such as high BP. Don't try to do this on your own - work with a psychiatrist, maybe a rehab program as well, an with the support of your kids, who I am sure would be pleased to help. With the right help, you CAN do it.
