I have a problem with alcohol and would like some help

I have a problem with alcohol and would like some help

If you know that your drinking is out of control, and would like some help to cut down or stop drinking then you have come to the right place.

Many people find that they become addicted to alcohol without even really realising it. Drinking can be an easy habit to slip into and what started off as an occasional drink has turned into a desperate need for alcohol. They may not fit the traditional stereotype of an alcoholic and can continue to hold down jobs, run homes and maintained the front of a perfectly normal lifestyle. Alcoholism is more commonplace than a lot of people think. Alcohol addiction is a crippling disease which is indiscriminate in choosing its victims-people of all ages, genders and nationalities have problems with their drinking and a considerable amount of them will keep it hidden for a long time.

Your drinking habits

Try keeping a “drink diary”, a record of your drinking. By keeping note of how much you drank and when, who you were with and what you were doing, you’ll probably be able to see a pattern emerging. Drinking diaries are often used in rehab as a valuable tool to help identify triggers and situations that could potentially cause someone who is recovering from alcohol addiction to drink again. Managing behaviours that lead to drinking is a key survival skill for those in recovery, and effective alcohol rehab programs can equip you with these essentials life skills.

Changing patterns

Changing your habits and routines to activities that don’t involve alcohol is recommended when trying to cut down or stop drinking. Try new activities or develop different hobbies, it will cut down the amount of time available to you to actually be able to drink. Meeting new people who enjoyed different  interests away from ones that are centred round alcohol will help too. By giving yourself time out, you’ll be able to help yourself.

Talk about it

Looking at the reasons why you want to stop drinking can help boost your determination to cut down or stop drinking, but until the issues behind the addiction are addressed and resolved, then long term recovery is less likely. Giving up alcohol is one thing, but staying clean is another entirely. The road to sobriety is a rocky one, and someone who has a problem with alcohol may relapse sevral times before they manage to stay off the booze for good. Counselling and therapy are crucial to success in any rehab program, and by delving into the roots of an addiction problem, underlying issues can be addressed.

A helping hand

If you have a problem and would like some help then don’t delay, give our qualified counsellors a call. You’ll receive caring, discreet and non judgemental advice and to help you beat your problems with alcohol. Our qualified, knowledgeable counsellors are on hand 24 hours a day to give you the help you need to break free from addiction.
