I have been able to cut my alcohol consumption in half, but does anyone have any suggestions to get away from the booze?

It hasn't affected my life yet, but I feel that it might if I continue in the fashion I have been drinking. I had to sell my guitar and amp to get out of debt (not alcohol related), and since then my alcohol consumption has skyrocketed. my girlfriend has been able to help me cut down on my drinking without problem. I think that I am not an alcoholic (i dont have any withdrawal symptoms) but rather alcohol dependant. (psychological dependancy of alcohol without physical dependancy)
Any help? suggestions?

EDIT: also, when Kensai is genuinely worried about your drinking, you know you're over doing it.

Don't buy beer, or put it near your mouth.

I'd say the first step is to stop drinking.



that's like telling a manic depressant to "just cheer up".

The only way I've ever been albe to cut down on my drinking is by having a job... So I suppose if you don't have one then that could be an idea

There is no point except party and be healthy and happy. Also money is not something to live for. If i didnt need money for drugs and beer i would give mine away.

I think being alcohol dependant is pretty much being an alcoholic on some level...

Having said that just ask your friends to not offer you booze and stuff and don't go to places where you can readily get alcohol.

ie: Never leave your room.

Ever.

you stopped being alcohol dependant? kudos to you, mate. my uncle is an alcoholic (serious alcoholic, has been drinking for 20 years) and I don't want to end up like him.

Should I start stopping drinking completely?

Yeah. Remove any alcohol from your house, and try not to buy any more.

A) DEPRESSIVE.
B) It's actually not like that at all. Manic depression isn't really something you can fix by having a damn bit of willpower.
