How would you go about quitting without any outside help? Is there any book, ressource, or method available that would enable someone to quit drinking without seeking professional help ? Some people have a high profile and do not want to risk public defeat for seeking help (even if that would help them). What methods available to quit by yourself ?
You have to just leave using drugs if you want to quit it on yourself. It doesnot matter if you read tons of books or take any kind of tool to do it. Unless you dont have self-confidence you cannot stop your drug addiction
I agree with STEVE... Quitting on your own if you are drinking a large amount can be fatal - you will go through withdrawals, may become dehydrated, and other medical things can go wrong. If you are ready to stop drinking, you need to go somewhere that offers detox. They will watch over you and give you meds to help you quit successfully and possibly refer you to IOP (intensive outpatient program) - groups to talk about triggers. You will be able to learn coping skills to get better -
