Keep in mind that I do not consider myself an alcoholic but I did recently start noticing a "need" to have a couple of drinks on stressful days. Then, the stressful days started being more often whether they actually were or not. So by the grace of God I made a preemptive strike and cut myself off. Not forever necessarily but for now. You asked what helps. I have a wife and two young boys and I take my job as a husband and father very seriously. Becoming dependent on alcohol impairs my ability to do both and I owe it to them to be the best I can be. I only have one chance to teach my boys how to be good husbands and good men. There's too much on the line to screw it up.
That I know one drink is too many and a hundred is not enough,I am an alcoholic and live it one day at a time,and the only one I repeat the only one you can give it up for is yourself because at the end of the the day you are the alcoholic, I find great solace in a higher power,buts that's a personal thing other people find their own way, hope this helps someone out there.
