I need to change

Over the last two years, I've been drinking increasingly more. Started when my mum was taken into hospital as was caring for her at home in difficult circumstances. I recall the first night she was gone, I went and bought wine and felt a sense of relief at not having the responsibility for a few nights. Got up to a bottle of wine a night, drinking on my own. Over the last six months, I've started to react badly when drinking wine and end up a crying, emotional mess. I gave it up for a few weeks but have crept up to daily drinking again. If I can't sort this out, I'm afraid for the future of my new marriage. I've emotionally hurt my husband badly twice this week and he's given up a lot for us.

He said this morning, when you are sober you are lovely. When your not, I don't recognise you.

We run a pub together so I will need to be very strong to deal with this. Help me please.
