Ways To Stop Drinking
If someone has serious concerns about their behaviour when drinking, or the impact drinking is having on their family, or their own health, they should consult their doctor immediately.
Alternatively, there are many national helplines and organizations that can provide help. Many of them can put you in touch with trained healthcare professionals, or there are support groups and fellowships.
Joining a sobriety group does increase the chances of maintaining long term sobriety.
Be mindful that if someone has been drinking for a long period of time, stopping altogether may not be an easy task.
