    Hey guys,
    i am a regular drinker and have been drinking for the last more than 15 years. Now, i am trying to quitting it as i am having many health problems like high BP. Well, i tried Link Removed for getting some help and yes, i am seeing some improvement. It is my 5th day today and not having any more alcohol since then, but how long would i go , just finger crossed.

    I would highly suggest getting involved with your local AA. Everyone's alcohol tolerance is different. Some people become alcoholics (body addicted to alcohol) and others not so much. The fact that you posted on here says that you need some help. Seek out a group of people who have the same exact goal as you do...support from others knowing what you are facing is very important.

    I know the feeling :( I have tried to give up alcohol so many times now! However I have managed to go from drinking 4-5 days of the week, to just 2 days of the week. My problem is once I have a pint, I need more. And what's worse alcohol makes your brain think "sod it" and you just go for it. Something that has helped me however, is taking the money I would usually spend on booze, and putting it in a pot towards a treat that gets me really hyped up, enough to ease the cravings a little! You could also buy yourself something smaller each week out of the money, as that would motivate you to keep doing so.

    Every time you refuse a drink, whether you just have one drink, or decide altogether not to go out or buy any, put the money in the pot and look up the thing you are saving for online - for me it is a sky diving session! But it can be a new game console, a new bike, whatever makes you excited to think about enough to override some of your cravings :) Or buy yourself something nice with the money every now and then! Whichever works best for you!

    Good luck!
