My brother is so very alcoholic and then someday he told me he need to quit drinking and he need more advice!
There is medication that he can take that will make him really ill if he tries to have a drink. I don't know what it is called but a doctor will know, since it has been around for a long time.
Personally I gave up by learning to deal with my emotions. It's not for everybody, but it worked well for me. I used to drink 40 drinks a week, and now I drink 0.
I'd recommend professional help if it's available to him. Quitting any addiction is hard, and sometimes family members and friends aren't equipped to support the person, no matter how much they want to help.
Ask him if he needs a drink or he just wants one from habit?
If he needs to have a drink he needs medical help and support from the AA.
If he chooses to have a drink then it is down to him to realize the damage he is doing, ask him why he drinks, most people drink because of other failures in their life, like depression or an un happy marriage. He needs to confront his issues in this case.
