The simple answer is to join AA!
by: Ned Wicker

Often, one of the hardest parts about alcoholism is knowing that you have a problem. But that doesn't seem to be the case with you, because you admit that you drink everyday and you are concerned for your children.

I would suggest that you to go to Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and get a sponsor and involved in a 12 Step group to help you deal with your drinking. These programs are designed to work on body, mind and spirit, and will help you to turn your life around and be the mother you need to be.

Your family would benefit from Al-anon, which is an organization designed to help families help the ones they love. Maybe some family members have already told you to stop drinking, but that really isn't helpful, is it? What can they do that IS helpful? That's what Al-anon is all about.

You may want to go to your doctor for a medical checkup to make sure you are healthy. Your doctor can also recommend treatment options for you. But make that call to AA.
