Q. I am a regular beer drinker. I am a regular beer drinker. I drink 3 cans of beer every day in the morning. Every alternate day in place of water I drink beer and especially when I am very thirsty, I drink even more beer than usual. Recently I have insomnia due to guilt as my wife has been very patient with my beer drinking for the past 14 years. I feel stressed out because of my guilt feeling and with less sleep. I feel like leaving my wife as I feel guilty every time I look at her. It has been very difficult for me and I would appreciate any suggestions which would make me feel better.
