How to Give Up Drinking Alcohol

Alcohol has become very common in today’s society. Almost every body, with rare exceptions, drink alcohol occasionally, socially or on a regular basis. But drinking alcohol can lead to a number of serious health complications. Excessive consumption of alcohol can lead to lung cancer and can make a man weak in memory.

People have various reasons to drink alcohol, but none of those reasons are sensible, they are just excuses to drink. People say that drinking alcohol makes feel good, but no good can be felt once the effect of alcohol is vanished. It only ends in replenishment and guilt. Someone says to get on with people is easy after drinking but they don’t know that drinking alcohol is directly spoiling their social image. People say drinking alcohol reduces tension and stress but in actual sense the stress and tension are increased once the effect of alcohol is vanished.

The regular consumption of alcohol is not good for health, it leads to a number of serious health complications and once a man gets addicted to it, it is really very impossible for him to get rid of it. Hence, to keep away from alcohol is the best way to avoid the problems. If you are a heavy drinker and want to get rid of it, it is not a simple thing to do. In very rare cases a drunkard is able to get rid of alcohol directly.

To quit drinking alcohol, first you should control yourself and develop a hate for drinking by analyzing the negative effects of drinking. You should cut down the amount you drink. Then slowly on a regular basis you should decrease the amount and finally you will be able to get rid of it one day. Avoid the place and friends where you can enjoy drinking, indulge yourself in activities where drinking is not allowed. Tell all your friends, family members and relative that you are going to quit drinking. This will give you a social support.

The only thing that can help you in getting rid of alcohol is your won power, your commitment to keep your words and a true determination. Spend most of your time with your family or friends who do not drink. An outdoor activity to spend you leisure time can help. Be sure that if you don’t give up drinking, you will be facing the problem of liver and lung cancer sooner or later.
