Welcome to our SR Alcoholism Forum
I'm glad you are keeping your doctor aware
and I'm sure......you can't go wrong by following
his directions. He knows what is best for you.
You might want to begin a healthy eating plan
and begin walking. Your added weight could also
be a factor in your BP ..it often is....
Be gentle with yourself....you are healing
and overdoing anything is not wise.
AA? certainly has worked great for me
Keep going....there is much to learn.
All my best
