So I'm an alcoholic in a country with no AA

I recently admitted to myself that I am an alcoholic. I always used the excuse that I don’t drink every day so I’m okay. But I think about drinking, can’t stop once I get started drinking and I use alcohol to cope. I’ve tried to stop on my own but don’t get far. I’ll do okay for a few days or weeks but can’t get past a month or so. I live in Central Asia and there is no AA groups in my country…nothing similar to help support people who are wanting to get and stay sober. I hope this online community can help me feel not so alone in this. I want to be healthy.
