  5. How did you stop drinking?
Asked: 2018-01-01 11:44:32
I've started drinking to relieve stress with all the family issues going on in my life. My kid has been arrested several times this past year and I feel helpless about it all so I drink. I am on here to ask how do you.. or I stop drinking? I realized I am acting no better than my kid is by drinking all the time.

For me, I had faith that I without question could stop drinking on my own. I was wrong in every respect. You may be different than I was, seeing as rehab became my only alternative if I was to stop. If you feel like I did get on top of the problem before it takes control of your life and goes into full-throtle mode. If not you could try cutting back the number of drinks, slowly weening yourself off and then try some alcohol abuse counseling. If the hospital is warranted while weening your self off, dont delay the trip.

I understand that the way you stop drinking will be different for someone else. But if your under the impression that you possess a drinking issue that is more complicated than stopping independently, you may run the chance of having an alcohol addiction. There is not a thing wrong with asking for help or requiring treatment services. If you feel in a rut and want a push in the right direction, you can look into local treatment centers and check out what type of services are available.
