Like "Drinking is altogether another problem. Your A1C looks good and I believe that as long as your A1C’s are as good as yours you might not have to test everyday. Weekly or monthly testing is all you might need to do. I would still have my A1C tested 2-3 times a year and do some kind of weekly or monthly testing. I believe testing daily is best but really isn’t necessary for everyone. There is another help community for people with addictions. http://www.addictionconnect.com/?source=14&token=0cc097b3dd3222775efa665a4950df9a8c3c2946c3e3454bdde715f138ab6d06 Maybe you might want to join and see if they can help you better. Here is another website you might want to look at. http://www.aa.org/?Media=PlayFlash There are many organizations out there for people having problems with drinking. Maybe you need to find a local group were you can go to meeting and socialize with people who been there and have been able to stop. "
