What kind of problem? Drinking too often, during the day, at work, etc? Or more like binge drinking?

I had a problem with alcohol as well as pain pills, Xanax, and coke.
I didn’t see it as a problem ever. I got to a point in my life where I wanted a change. I was finally woken. I realized how I was destroying everything. I fought and fought my self to give everything up. I had times I stopped then I would get a craving and do it again. Or have an excuse why I needed to numb myself. Enough was enough. My way was just telling myself it’s all in my head and I don’t need anything.
I dealt with bad withdrawals to the point where I felt like giving up. I couldn’t give up though. I needed to do this for my family(wife and kids)
It’s now been over 5 years being clean. Wish I would have done it sooner.
It is hard but you can do it. Believe in yourself and find all the best things in your life to give you more reasons to do it. Last thing you want to do is wait till it’s too late.

Also, as I’ve explained, it’s just such silly advice. Why not give suggestions as to how to do it? Saying just do it is the same thing as you telling me you want to become a Pro bodybuilder and me telling you just do it, and then strutting around like I actually have you legitimate advice instead of just useless drivel.

Thank you guys all so much for all the responses. l am glad I can have people to support me. Bought some kudzu root and took it for the first time today. Will continue to take everyday for possibly forever as long as it can aid in my quitting alcohol. I know it will take time and a lot of mental strength but I will do it. I have no choice. Otherwise it will be to late. Thank you all again.

I do know it was a ritualistic and triggered effect, so coping mechanisms were involved along with the physical and timing of the ritual.
I believe breaking an addiction that is psychological and physiological require a few angles of attack. I didn't want drugs like Chantix because they scared me. (Sides) I told myself the stink and all the negatives that go with smoking were robbing me of some great and meaningful moments.
- Emotional Support
- Talk Therapy
- Some kind of replacement therapy
- Maybe even chemical substitution (I used vaping, which was my gateway to just quitting)
I'm not being glib or pretending to be scientific, as this is off the top of my head.
I do know AA is important for anyone struggling with alcohol.
I hope my words help a little.
I don't think of smoking, and when stressed that usually triggered the desire, now I just enlist a coping mechanism. It's automatic.

Bah chantix sides aren't even half what people want you to think they are.. I get vivid weird dreams from it and that's it.. with the root he picked up, or antabuse it works more like aversion therapy..

Nice dude. I used to hang out with my cousins every weekend. From 18-23 I would get hammered every weekend. Sometimes multiple times a week. I am now 24 soon 25 this October. Unfortunately some of those bad habits of years of alcohol abuse stuck with me. Really trying to get rid of it once and for all.

I was a total drunk(liquor everyday) for years. DUIS, jail, family issues. AA meetings. I know ALL about alcohol and it's abuse.
First step really is putting the bottle down.
Try marijuana or Kratom.
I highly recommend Kratom, no side effects. It actually aids in digestion and has a host of other health benefits

I know the ins and outs of addiction. It runs in my family so it really is a struggle to stay clean.
Alcohol, benzos, weed, pills, cocaine, speed you name it.
Getting sober really is UP TO YOU.
Even if your around sober people(which I found out in AA is a lie, half of them are still drinking/drugging) it is ultimately UP TO YOU.
You have to get to a point where enough is enough.
It's not up to others, it's up to you. I stopped because I was ruining my life and health. I chose to stop after hitting rock bottom.

It is up to the individual. Plain and simple.
AA did nothing to help me. I did it myself. It's called will power
