Sobriety: If you check on -line or in your yellow pages - there will be contact information for alcoholics anonymous. Check meeting times and locations. If you don't have transport, sometimes they can assist. It is time for a comprehensive medical evaluation, if you haven't already had one. Working with an addiction medicine specialist is very beneficial as is alcohol rehabilitation. Take care.
