Curt, Welcome to the forum. I too tried all the methods out there to control my drinking but invariably it ended up with a worse binge. End of the drinking career, I had turned into another daily drinker, and blackout drink during weekends and holidays. The yets were still looming. Fortunately, like you I came to the realization that I had to change. Thats when my shrink recommended AA. The 12 steps and the fellowship has given me a new life. This will be my 12 years without any mind altering substance in my body. I encourage you to read the book Alcoholics Anonymous, though written back in 1939 it is still pertinent. I would suggest you read chapter More about alcoholism and There is a solution and Bill Story. It will give you a glimpse of the problem and what we need to do to recover.

I've failed to manage my alcohol use. It really concerns me. I feel like I need help.
