I Want To Stop Drinking Alcohol
If you want to stop drinking alcohol but find you can’t – however hard you try – then don’t feel bad. How this happened is not important. What you do next is all that matters. According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine: “Simply put, addiction is not a desired condition”.*
What you must do next is ask for help. However determined you are to stop drinking, your determination will not be enough. If will-power alone could solve the problem, then nobody would stay trapped in drink.
The first – and often hardest – step in rehab is to admit you need help. Tell somebody that you have a problem. Tell your family or a good friend. Tell your GP. Call AA. Call us or email us at Rehab Guide.
Don’t let pride stop you getting your life back. Don’t say you’ll get help with your drinking after you have sorted out your other problems. As soon as you admit you are losing control of your drinking, then you can start to regain your physical and emotional wellbeing.
The good news is that there are many people out there who have successfully escaped their entanglement with alcohol, and there are people and places able and willing to help you do the same. Rehab Guide can put you in touch with them.
There is no shame in contacting us at Rehab Guide. But there is the hope of brighter days ahead.
