Hi.. If the alcohol is affecting your daily activities and if you are not able to perform the usual daily activities without consumption of alcohol, then you are alcohol dependent.. You need to decide what you want to do know more than hearing it from others, as your motivation and not others that is going to help you come out of this.. If you have decided to give up alcohol then give up as soon as possible.. You can take the help of the rehab centres to assist you in quiting alcohol.. My suggestion is definitely "QUIT DRINKING"...
