Realising you have a problem with alcohol is the first step to getting better, but it is often the hardest one.
You may need help if:
- You always feel the need to have a drink.
- You get into trouble because of your drinking.
- Other people warn you about how much you’re drinking.
If your body has become dependent on booze, stopping drinking overnight can be life-threatening, so get advice about cutting down gradually.
A good place to start is with your GP. Be honest with them about how much you drink.
