How to stop drinking

By drinking, I mean alcohol. Quitting drinking could be as a result of approaching alcoholism, being prone to drunken stupor, or for health reasons. 

Not only is alcohol a leading cause of death, but it is also the root of many domestic issues in numerous homes. Alcohol is addictive and quitting it is ridiculously hard 

For one to stop drinking, he first needs to realize that he has a drinking problem and has a good reason to quit. Also, he needs to prepare mentally for what would happen after he quits. It’s difficult but possible. To quit drinking, you can attempt the following. 

Lifestyle changes

What is it that can make quitting alcohol difficult for you? A lack of good reasons to quit associating with alcoholics and drunkards who under the guise of friendship push you to drink, indiscipline, and a lack of commitment to your plan. If you go to the bar every night or have the habit of drinking during the day, you need to set rules to stop such and stick to those rules. 

Avoid places, situations, and people that will break down your defenses. Be determined to make sobriety your priority. Let your friends know that you are working on quitting (don’t mind the jabs). 

Anyone who keeps trying to get you to drink is no true friend, let them go. Choose a group of friends or associates that are trying to quit and on their way to recovery or already recovered. A strong social circle will help you on your journey to recovery. You might falter but relapse is no cue to stay down. 

Go to a rehab

You may need professional assistance provided by rehab programs. You can either be an in-patient or out-patient.  A suitable treatment program will be drafted for you based on the degree of your addiction. 

What should I expect once I stop drinking? 

At first, you will experience acute withdrawal symptoms. The first few days will be agonizing but that’s the price to pay for quality time for other sober activities, a better lifestyle, lesser financial burden, better sleep, and better social standing. Health benefits for you include improved liver function, strong immune system weight loss, and lower cholesterol. 

Some withdrawal symptoms you will experience include increased blood pressure, tremors, excessive sweating, high temperature and sometimes, seizures. This is because your body is trying to get rid of the alcohol in it. 

Professional help is thus recommended. Also, note that quitting is a lifelong commitment until self-control of steel is attained and continuously fortified.
