How to Stop Drinking Alcohol – Prepare to Stop Drinking
While it may seem easy to decide to stop drinking one moment and simply not drink ever again, in reality that approach isn’t effective. When looking at the question of how to stop drinking, first set the goal to stop drinking and then prepare your environment to stop drinking.
How to stop drinking by preparing ahead of time:
- Set a date on which you will stop drinking and announce this date to others so you can be held accountable.
- Remove temptations, like alcohol and anything that reminds you of alcohol, from the home and office.
- Let everyone know you intend to stop drinking and don’t be around those who don’t support your goal to stop drinking.
