You first off have to be serious about wanting to stop, because without realization and desire then all the counseling and AA Meetings in the world won't do a damn thing except waste your time and money......speaking of time and money, how much time and money do you think you have already wasted on getting wasted???? I figured out a CONSERVATIVE estimate on how much money I've spent on drugs and alcohol over my 17 year span of idiotic stupidity, and the number was OVER SIXTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!! Do you know how sick to my stomach it makes me everytime I think about that? Not to mention the abuse to my body and mind. All the times I was supposedly "having fun", yeah, just sitting there doing nothing but drinking.....good times.....smh......
To cure alcohol addiction, you need to first seek help from a medical professional to inhibit alcohol dependence and see a counselor. You also need to stay away from people who drink and eat carbohydrates to avoid cravings. Eat fruits, take water and vitamin supplements and you will improve as days go by.
Destroy all your bottles, and make sure that you have ABSOLUTLY no way of getting more, spend most of your monthly income on the necessities right away, then take the rest and open a savings account and make sure that it is only accessible through a trusted family member that will keep you from spending it on alcohol. Ask for help and acquire a roommate of some kind, or at least have someone to check on you daily. If you keep yourself away from alcohol, you can kick it.
Speak to a counselor or seek professional help, in the mean time try to change your daily routine, at times when you find yourself wanting to drink try and do another activity. A friend of mine in South Africa runs a rehab clinic http://www.twinriversrehab.co.za I am sure if you make contact, which is the first step that help will be afforded to you.
The best way to kick alcohol dependence is to start first with detoxing. You, and if you are not asking for yourself, exchange "you" for whomever, can go to a 48-hour detox over a weekend. While in detox, have your home cleaned out of any and all alcohol, glasses used to drink, anything in your home that would trigger wanting a drink. After detox, start attending AA meetings immediately. You can then find an outpatient treatment facility whereby sessions are held at night as to not interrupt daily work schedules. Find a sponsor so when the urge to drink arrives, and unfortunately it will, you have a support system. All you can do is try. If you are serious about this, you will try hard, listen to suggestions, and take it one minute at a time until you can handle an hour at a time then a day. Be healthy, happy and live a less chaotic life. I wish you all the best.
There is only one way to "Kick" an Alcohol addiction. Admit and Accept that we are Alcoholic, and that we are Powerless over our addiction. If you can admit and accept that fact you CAN kick an addiction. Reach out, get help. Alcohol withdrawal can be extremely dangerous, so recommend Medical supervision in some form for the initial withdrawal. The easier/safer way to do this for many people is to find a Detox or Re-Hab, but it can be done under your own Doctors supervision and with help from resources such as Alcoholics Anonymous. Go to; www.aa.org. and find resources in your area, find AA meetings, reach out to people and you will find there are many out there like you/us who are willing to help and support you. It is not an easy road you're considering but then again neither is the daily hell of being addicted and all the negatives that go along with that. And becoming Sober and staying that way is The most rewarding thing you will ever do in your life! If you need any more help or assistance just Ask. Good luck !
