Hi. I am an asthma patient. I have the habit of drinking and I have a feeling that alcohol consumption is making my condition worse. Is there any connection between asthma and alcohol consumption? I am single and I stay alone. I have no idea how to deal with sudden asthma attacks? Luckily when I had my last attack, my friend was there who just came to visit me. We both were drinking and after lunch, I started wheezing and it became uncontrollable. I cannot abstain from drinking. What should I do? My sister suggested an alcohol addiction treatment in Calgary ( http://www.canadadrugrehab.ca/ ). Anyone here has previous experiences? Or is there any other effective way?
