“………..a regular contributor. Bit of a serious post for me, I’m looking at giving up alcohol, have done the whole binge drinking but after….last weekend, I was smashed and beligerent, I don’t remember anything…What tips have people got about giving up? Have found some good sites and advice and I’m seeking out professional help. Alcohol never has really played a big part in my life, it’s just something that I have had while I was socialising and yes I know and my friends know, I dont need it cos’ I”M larger than life!!”
