Re: alcohol Please help


I'm not sure there is going to be a magical, easy way to quit. For me it took getting pregnant. My desire for a healthy baby was more powerful than the urge to drink. That's not to say it was easy though. It took a healthy dose of shame and guilt about what I would do to the baby what people would think to get me through. Once the baby was born, the urge was still there for a long time, but I had the incentive of knowing that I could not care for the baby properly if I was drunk every night. Accidents and near accidents that I had while drunk told me this. Basically I guess you need to give yourself a powerful motivation that will outweigh whatever you get from drinking. Is it the effect alcohol has on your health? The way it hurts your family? Also, look at the reasons that trigger you to drink and find healthier ways to cope. Someone else mentioned AA which I think is a very fine program. I didn't go through it myself because I didn't believe in any sort of God at the time, but I did attend a meeting when I was first coming to terms with my problem and found it very helpful to be in a room of totally supportive people who understood what I was grappling with.
