are you addicted to alcohol?
Your body's reliant on the alcohol to sleep. This is not good see a doc NOW.
alcoholic drinks interfere with rem sleep even if you are not drunk
this is a question you should ask a doctor, are you asthmatic?
I had the same issue I thought. If you are looking to get drunk then you ask for trouble. When I got drunk, I got drunk and got me in heaps trouble. Be glad and move on to things that stimulate your mind in productive creative manner. Time for new friends perhaps? Make the correct choice for you.
