My best friend has just got sober, but is finding the cravings desperately hard. When are these likely to go away, cos I’m afraid she’ll drink otherwise.

It varies from person to person, some find that after a couple of months that the cravings have all but gone, for others it can be a few years.

Alcohol cravings can last for years, but they will get less intense and fewer over time so reassure your friend of this.
