Hi Ann,

I'm sure others will be responding but, in the meantime, I wanted to welcome you here.

Ann, you took an important first step by sending this note to WebMD.

You've described several classic consequences of alcoholism (shame, fear, irresponsibility,) and the first thing I'd like you to realize is that alcoholism is a disease. Would you be ashamed if you had the disease of cancer? I would guess not; you would want to do whatever you could to fight it.

It is important for your children, other family members and most importantly, yourself, that you get help. Making an appointment with an addiction specialist is a good beginning; this is a doctor who can evaluate what sort of treatment would best fit your circumstances. If you live in a smaller city without one of these specialized doctors, please be completely honest with your family MD; it's possible you may also have medical consequences from your drinking.

You do not have to live the way you described anymore - there is hope, and the sooner you take positive action, the better.

I wish you well.

Hi Harlryguy and welcome to WebMD,

Our experts look in here about once per week, usually towards the end of the week or over the weekend.

I realize this won't be soon enough for you and hope you will contact a doctor to help you through this. You need and deserve support through this process. Please take care of yourself and I hope you'll keep us updated on your discussion as to how you're doing.

Recognizing the problem is an important first step. For me, accepting that I had the problem was the hardest part. Now, its important that you tell your family and friends so that you have a strong support network and can avoid all temptation.
