I have not started drinking but I have started smoking again.
I quit for the second time in my life March 03. I started again around May of this year. You see, I was just Dx in July of this year. My first quit was for 9 years! Stress has a lot to do with it I think.
I will quit again when things level out in my life. I did it cold turkey both times. I have a strong will when I set my mind to it.
You have taken the first step when you can admit that it may be a problem. Maybe you need to talk to someone about it. Your husband, a friend maybe even your doctor, an MS or alcohol counselor.
Or I don't know if it will help but we can private message if you need to talk. Sometimes things look better when you are able to talk them out. Life is too short and you have enough just dealing with your MS and a home and family. I have a FT job, 3 kids and a home to take care of myself and it can all get very hectic at times. I try not to let it get to me.
Please keep in touch and I hope this finds you well...
