Do you know your A1C levels? This is a predictor to determine

R-lipoic acid is very effective (and not in the supplement you asked about in the best form). If you have some beginning
diabetic issues, R-lipoic STABILIZED form (also called NaRALA)
can help. Take one an empty stomach.
2mos supply at one a day.
But for you and the drinking history, I'd do at least 300mg of Benfotiamine daily to start. This helps with the thiamine problem. 2 mos supply at 2 a day.
A good Bcomplex to start is easy to find.
This is one:
This one is affordable, has methylB12, and a good formula
50 to 100 days supply
You can also take a generic Centrum Senior for savings too.
That has all the other vits and minerals without iron.
That is the nucleus for alcohol induced neuropathy. Your diet should have EFAs in it --omega-3's from salmon and flax, canola oil, walnuts. Some smart foods have Omega-3's added as well as some eggs now. Some almonds for magnesium,

You can leave off the R-lipoic until you see how the rest work, in a month or two. You can add it in later if you like.
This is the typical diet given to recovering alcohol excessive users.
Amazon has free shipping for $25 which is the lowest I've seen yet for quality supplements. I am buying most of mine now there as well.
