If you’ve said, “I want to quit drinking”, you’ve taken a huge step in your recovery. While much information is available encouraging people to stop drinking, the next step is choosing how to proceed with finding alcohol rehab.
Tell Someone, “I Want to Quit Drinking.”
Call a trusted friend or family member and tell them the good news. Declaring your decision out loud can cement it in your brain as being “real”. If you don’t have anyone you can call, seek out an AA meeting. People there will understand and encourage you to stick with your decision.
Attend a 12-Step Program
Don’t delay. A quick Internet search will give you plenty of results for meetings in your area. Even if you aren’t sure what to say during the meeting, go anyway. You’ll find plenty of support in other members once you’re there. It’s a great place to get practical advice and encouragement to get you through the next few days, weeks, months and years as a newly-sober person.
After Admitting “I Want to Quit Drinking”, Call Your Doctor
If you’ve been drinking heavily long term, going through withdrawal can be uncomfortable and potentially dangerous as well. If you see a doctor regularly, give him or her a call and explain your decision. Since withdrawal symptoms can start within six hours of your last drink, your doctor will probably want to see you right away to reduce potential complications during detox.
