Alcohol is not the answer to your problem. I suggest you use a healthy diet of fresh fruit and vegetables daily , 2 L. Of water daily. Also ask your pharmacist to suggest a good pro-biotic. You seem to be suffering from an addictive personality disorder , I suggest you consult a psychiatrist to address this , so that you do not continue to swap one addiction for a nother.
