i drink every night. Most of the time 2 glasses of wine, sometimes 1 beer and 2 glasses of wine, and on weekends, usually 3 or maybe 4. I've been doing this for over a year.

I want to be able to just NOT have a drink if i don't want to. Which I can do, i just haven't wanted to! Now, i want to but, I scared myself silly by googling withdrawal symptoms.

Now I am scared that if i don't have a drink I will have a seizure or DT's.

Is my drinking enough to cause that type of withdrawal if I stop?

From what I have read, it seems you are not a real heavy drinker and could possibily stop on your own. It will be hard. AA is alway a good support group to start off with and a sponser you can have as a mentor. Try going to a couple meetngs and see how it goes. I truly think you can do it my friend.
