Please Note

If you experience fits, shaking hands, sweating, seeing things that are not real, depression, anxiety, or difficulty sleeping after a period of drinking and while sobering up, there's a possibility you might be clinically dependent on alcohol. In such cases, it's important not to abruptly and completely cease drinking. However, you can regain control over your drinking habits. We strongly advise you to consult with a GP or reach out to your nearby community alcohol service for assistance in safely reducing your alcohol intake.
