Cindy, I tend to be an anxious person and what has helped me for the past year is drinking a bottle of wine each evening to relax my mind. Apparently, my husband thinks I have an alcohol problem. Should I be concerned?

Cindy, writes:
Addison, your consumption of wine is abnormal and unhealthy; it’s a form of self-medication. Based on the amount you are drinking per day and depending on your weight, you could be damaging your liver to say the least. If you cannot stop drinking you have alcoholism and should seek treatment as soon as possible.
