There is no easy way if you're an alcoholic - you need to be detoxed in a hospital - where they can monitor your vital signs and give you vitamins and minerals while keeping you hydrated. You then go to a rehab for several months - typically - and attend 12-Step meetings (Alcoholics Anonymous) where you meet others with the same problem with booze - that can help you.
Hi, YSTBro. If you positively don't want to go to a hospital (which would definitely, no doubt be the best way for you to go because of the help you would get there and have the back-up you need), I have found a self-help site that I think would be very helpful. I'll give you an example of the titles of what it has to do with and would ask that you look at it. (My father was an alcoholic and ended up dying by means caused by it.)

One of the best things to do is change your lifestyle. Get rid of the people that are enabling you to drink. Change your surroundings so that they don't involve drinking or make it convenient to do so. Ask for help, from AA, family, support/church groups and then start your new life one step and one day at a time. Every day sober is a victory.
I managed to do it in a single night. I fell off a train.
I don't think I was a bona fide alcoholic but I was a bloody good drinker (the basic difference is that good drinkers don't have to go to the meetings). After that wake-up call I didn't touch a drop for about three years. Now I have a glass of wine with a meal but rarely drink anything else.
But if you don't want to try the extreme measure of ending up in hospital -- or worse ! -- then AA or rehab is the way to go.
