I'm 40, and have been drinking since 17. Only time I could completely quit was during my pregnancies, had no desire with morning sickness. I drink a bottle of wine sometime more each night. (After the kids are in bed) every time I quit, I feel sick like getting the flu. Sweating and headaches, can't sleep, and my eyes are bloodshot and dry and hurt. How can I get passed these horrible physical symptoms without rehab? I have young kids and do fine in the day at work, but spend 8-11pm drinking my wine to relax. If I don't have a few drinks I can't sleep and feel like c**p!
