Stay totally of the drink up until your medical and cdt levels should be fine but just bare in mind they can ask for a second medical in some cases

You will certainly have a challenge on your hands getting your license back. I’ve heard the second time around there will be more thorough GP reports.
If there is anything on your File about alcohol misuse, abuse or dependency you will be in a fight for the long haul getting your license back.

again, you need to come to a decision alcohol or your licence?
 
there should be nothing on file from my gp as I've never been to him regarding it but i did have probation in which they wanted me to do alcohol corse for drink but due to me being in full time job it wasn't something I could do without losing pay and maybe my job so they said work was more important they whould be the only organisation with info regarding alcohol and thats is it for the alcohol I need this bk now been far too long and now with two young kids wife etc now 33 I have grown up the festival days are long gone with the lads 👦

DVLA are sure to make medical enquiries with your GP after your list of offences. Given the current Covid situation there may be a delay in that process.
There is also the isssue of if DVLA give you your licence back, you will only get a provisional licence (because of the DD40) and witll also have to undertake an extended driving test. This could take months to obtain an appointment as they are all on hold again, leading to a huge backlog.
