Hi Silverotter, welcome to SR. Glad you are here, there's lots of support. I was doing the same thing of 1-2 bottles of wine a day for two to three years. I quit at the end of January and feel so much better. What is your plan to quit/detox?

I too was a wine drinker. One to three bottles a day. I feel so much better now that I'm sober. Good luck with your detox and getting sober. Come here any time you need to vent or ask for advice. We're here to listen and help you.

Welcome. Being sober is definitely the way to go. The bottle does not deliver
