Are you at risk of serious withdrawals at this point?

Bhudson, welcome, good to have you here.

Dump the rum (and all alcohol). It's not fooling anybody. I'd bet even your neighbours could smell it on you from their living room? .

As a lot of people here have said, you need to want to stop drinking more than anything else. It sound like a throw-away statement at first, but it's similar to deciding to get married, deciding to have kids, etc, it's that fundamental to your life and will change everything.

Briefly, first step would be to consult a Dr, and confide in your husband
Second step. Dump the booze. All of it.
Third step. Work through the withdrawals (whichever method you want to use / been advised to use)
Fourth Develop and refine your plan.

Simultaneously to all of this, stick close to SR. This is where the specialists in alcoholism and recovery hang out. And I learn from them every day.

All the best,

Bruce.

Throw out the booze or ask your husband to do it for you if you can't. Next, go to the ER and say you need detox, they have to help you. Can you look into a salvation army rehab, I believe they are no cost or low cost.
At this point, you have to be willing to try anything. Why not go to an AA meeting today? You will find support there and I bet, if you asked, you could find someone to come to your home and dump the alcohol for you.
Someone here once said something that really hit home with me, we have to put the same effort into getting sober that we put into drinking. Think about how much effort you put into your drinking- all the money, shopping, hiding, hours, days, etc. If you put the same time and effort into getting sober you have a chance.
Let's do this. We are here with you all the way.

First things first, you need to safely detox and then get a game plan together. If you are able to stop drinking it will be the most wonderful gift in the world you could give yourself.
