Hi, I'm wondering if online...
Hi, I'm wondering if online help is as beneficial as outpatient classes pertaining to alcohol rehab? I've recently stopped drinking wine and want a little help keeping myself from drinking again.

Hello!

How much has been your usual I take if wine?

I would be happy to work with you daily but honestly I thing an in person approach such as seeing a psychologist or joining an AA group would be more help to you !!

Alcohol in MODERATION is not really harmful BUT don't fool yourself if you have a problem sticking to moderate consumption then to AVOID ALCOHOL is best ....

It is a deep ingrained problem...

Folks with alcoholism problem will NOT BE ABLE TO ADHERE TO MODERATE alcohol consumption

It simply does not work that way ....

We can WISH all we want but if you are in truth an alcoholic or have an alcohol problem ....then when you do drink you automatically want MORE AND MORE ...that is the reality for many individuals ...

That is not making any judgment but is the reality of the situation

I do not know you or your specific habits ...

Let me know what details that you care to share with me ...

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback Thank you and Best Regards,

Anthony Bray MD

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
