Is There A Easy Way To Quit Drinking Alcohol

Updated on August 12, 2013

And the Big Question Is?

Here is the question of all questions that alcoholics ask sometimes and it is, is there a easy way to quit drinking alcohol? Nothing is easy in life, that in the end will come out with positive results. It takes hard work, the willingness and determination to make a change in your life.

In my opinion the easy way to quit drinking is just to QUIT! You have to make up your mind and stick to your decision to get and stay sober. Don't keep torturing yourself.

Quitting drinking will take some work on your part and pure determination to get sober. If you are willing to stay strong and determined to surrender to your addiction to alcohol, than chances are you will succeed.

If you are not 100 percent loyal to your decision to quit drinking then you may have a tough time with long term sobriety. For myself, I made up my mind to quit drinking alcohol and placed on my calendar the day I would begin my new life of sobriety. I was so excited about what I was about to do, I couldn't wait to that date I selected, so I moved the date to the next morning because I said to myself, either I am going to stop drinking or i'm not. Why prolong the the date to quit drinking. Just do it and get it over with once and for all.

I wanted so bad my sobriety back, I started the next day and have been sober for two and a half years now and going strong. There is no use in waiting for something you truly want in life.

Alcoholics that want to quit drinking may do the same thing by selecting their sobriety start date, but in the meantime they are still drinking and possibly drinking more than ever because they know that the sober date is coming up fast, so they try to get as much drinking in before that date arrives.

That is nothing but torture in my book. Why wait so long to get sober? If you are going to do it then just quit and do it. In many cases the alcoholic may need to wait a day or so if he or she needs to enter a Treatment Center for the proper care and to detox in a safe manner and place with Professionals helping each step of the way. In my eyes that is the only reason the waiting process should happen.

From One Alcoholic to Another

Here is my suggestion for one alcoholic to another. Are you going to quit drinking alcohol now or are you going to set up a date to start your sobriety? If you are serious about changing your life why wait a day longer?

Each day you are not sober is just one more day you are wasting in your life. Wasting precious days here on earth being drunk and not thinking the way a sober person does. You maybe taking chances of being caught drinking and driving. You are putting your health one more day in jeopardy and many other things that could happen to you if you prolong quiting drinking.

So, never mind picking a date a week from now or a month or after the New Years for your New Years Resolution. If you are serious about getting sober than don't wait, do it NOW!
