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. Maybe you might want to join and see if they can help you better. Here is another website you might want to look at. 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. "
