What Is the Best Way for an Alcoholic to Stop Drinking?

Question by mandygir: What is the best way for an alcoholic to stop drinking?
My boyfriend keeps repeating me he wants to stop drinking, but he’s an alcoholic. I’m trying to help him stop, but I’m not an expert. Sometimes I think he drinks behind my back and he doesn’t want to admit it. He’s real good at lying since I have caught him myself. I love him with all of my heart, but I don’t want to end up like others ladies after 15 years together all tired and exhausted for trying to help her husband to stop drinking. Our relationship is so beautiful when he doesn’t drink at all.

What should I do?

See if you can get him to go to an AA meeting, that may be his best chance.

Answer by brittney
if he doesn’t stop then that’s what will happen. try taking him along to AA [ Alcoholics anonymous ] or alanon. if he is serious then these groups can help. If he sees you are committed to go with him then he may be more resolved. You cannot quit for him so initially it is up to him. You may also give him the ultimatium ” its me or the booze. ” be prepared to carry out you threat even if it is in the short term. The shock may be enough to wake him up and do something serious about giving up.
good luck;ps sometimes it is necessary to be cruel to be kind.
