Boozing all day barely affects me – I’m an alcoholic and it’s killing me

DEAR DEIDRE: BOOZING all day barely affects me now. I’m an alcoholic and it’s killing me.

The doctor said my liver and other organs are badly damaged. I’m a 50-year-old man but I have lost so much, including my job, because of drinking.

I worked in a factory and was in charge of two machines. Eventually my bosses decided I was incapable of working safely. 

I’ve got one friend who looks out for me and she buys me alcohol.

She knows she shouldn’t, but also that I need it.

I spend 15 hours a day in front of the TV, eating a little but mainly making sure I get my fix of alcohol. Otherwise I get the shakes.

I’ve tried different alcohol addiction programmes but nothing works.

DEIDRE SAYS: These programmes do work but you have to stick with them. 

Perhaps the timing wasn’t right for you before and you didn’t have the willpower to keep to the guidance.

You will find great support, as well as an online toolkit to help, through We Are With You (wearewithyou.org.uk). Anyone who has drug or drink problems can chat with them online.
