    I’m 24 and have been a heavy drinker for just over a year now. I drink every day, mostly at night time, at least a 375ml bottle of vodka if not more. I drink for many reasons that I won’t bore everyone with but I could sure use some tips and advice on kicking the habit! I haven’t told anyone in my life about my problem so I hope to get better by myself which means lots of research and probably a little trial and error. I think weaning myself off will be where I start, drinking less and less each week. I’d love to know a little about what to expect and some ideas on what to do health wise to make sure my body doesn’t suffer any more harm than I’ve already inflicted. Congratulations to everyone who has been successful in this journey, I hope to be one of you soon!

    Way to extend the hand of AA to that lady. I hope she has the willingness to follow through with contacting and God willing she is ready to work the steps.

    With a will power you have,you will definitely succeed..Best would be to join a rehab centre, and undergo proper counselling.Would be great if your family and friends also stand by you in these trying times..good luck !!

    Looks like you’ve started on the right path and have done some research. Little by little you can cut down. From what I hear, smoking is the hardest addiction to quit, but doing it cold turkey is not the way to go. Please keep me informed as to how it works out. Wish you the best.
