Any other substance that you are taking like smoking etc.
Circumstances which increase your drinking
What prevents you from quitting
Problem faced by you because of drinking till date
Problem faced by you while trying to quit this habit
Your family history of drinking or other substance abuse
What you tried till date and duration of trial including any medical help
Any effect/side effect experienced by you while trying the therapy
Maximum duration in which you remained abstinent for alcohol
After quitting what lead to returning back to alcohol
Do you have any other illness.

At this moment I assure you that treatments are available on basis of magnitude of problem in form of the medicines and various kind of psychotherapy.
