A 26-year-old man is brought to the ER by a policeman because he was drunk while driving. He was arrested twice last year for the same reason. He also missed work for a few times because he was drunk. His girlfriend broke up with him 3 months ago because he promised her several times to stop drinking but he couldnít. He mentioned that he couldnít stop drinking because every time he quit, he feels horrible symptoms and he has to go back to drink more than before.
