Step 1: Throw alcohol out Rid the house of alcohol as soon as you decide to stop drinking, which should be done with a clear head and not while hugging the base of a toilet bowl. Step 2: Keep a journal Keep a journal to track your thoughts and emotions as you quit drinking, reflecting on why you feel you need to drink. Drinking is often a symptom of what's really wrong. Tip Seek professional counseling. Step 3: Avoid friends and places Avoid drinking buddies and places where you drink, as well as the situations and habits that invite drinking behavior. Step 4: Create boundaries Create boundaries so you can stay sober. Some of your friendships may change, but true friends will understand.

Tip Join Alcoholics Anonymous or another support group if you need more support than you can muster yourself.
