    So I talked with my therapist today, and she says I need to stop drinking. To be honest, I know she's right.

    I really dont think about drinking until the drive home. I always see the corner store and think, "I really could use a drink..."

    Anyone have tips for getting through this? I'm seriously not sure how to live any other way... Maybe I should get a pack of smokes instead...

    Hi Anonymous!

    The best advise I can give on stopping drinking is what I did.

    Alcoholics Anonymous. 90 meetings in 90 days.

    I know its an old system but it does work.

    There are online chats for AA, perhaps find one and just hang out with them. Most AA and NA people I've known are good people. And they understand.

    I wish you well in your journey.
