For many people there is no one "easy" solution to quit drinking; however, there are many practices that make it easier to quit, such as 12-step programs, private meetings with therapists, group therapy sessions or detox plans, according to WebMD. Keeping a journal can also help, notes Helpguide.org..
A detox plan can include a visit to a treatment facility or can be a health plan that an individual follows at home, according to WebMD. Patients have the highest rates of success when they are able to identify the problems that drinking creates for them and find a strong support group to help them remain committed, according to Helpguide.org. Setting a drinking goal and checking in each day with a daily diary message can also help make it easier to quit drinking.
