Friend, as a family man, you should control your drinking. it affects other members in your family, mainly your children. So, first, you have to make up your mind that you will resist drinking. You can take of a doctor. I have heard once that medical marijuana can help people to get rid of addiction.

You have won half the battle, check into a Alcoholic Anonymous rehab and get yourself detoxified so you don't have withdrawals. and attend AA meetings everyday one day at a time, and you will transform yourself into a better human. don't do all this for your daughter but for yourself, your daughter will enjoy the fruits.
