You seriously need: Help. Do you want to die? What you are proposing is crazy (and this is coming from a shrink). Please get help. Alcoholics anonymous is free, confidential and a great source of support. At this point, would also encourage you to let your gastroenterologist know what you are doing. An addiction medicine specialist is also very important.
