  1. As far as I know, there is nothing better than the 12 steps program. So first of all, I would have found out about the existence of groups / Alcoholics Anonymous/ in the city.

    If not –

    1) set goals for the day. Don't drink for a day. Don't drink for another day.

    2) Disruptions are likely to occur. Basically – do not ridicule yourself for them, do not consider, they say, everything is lost. Normal. Setting a goal for the next day…

    3) As much as possible, change all the environment that can somehow provoke (yes cho you, come on, yes a little bit)

    4) Request and get maximum support from both your family and a specialist. That is, if there is an opportunity, of course, to receive professional support in dealing with addictions. This may be a psychiatrist and / or psychotherapist.

  2. The method of substitution (wedge by wedge) is to switch to something that is more interesting in comparison with the habit being eliminated.
    The method of deferred use is not to abandon it (the action often creates resistance), but to postpone it for a little while in a more suitable environment.
    The method of using within the controlled limits of sobriety is not to use something that easily sweeps away control.
    The first two methods work quite well, if you really can't stand it, then the third is the lesser of evils. (I call the loss of discipline and control evil)

  3. If you are not able to understand this issue yourself, then go to a psychotherapist. Since you are talking about the “first stage”, you probably think that there is no severe physical dependence. In this case, it makes sense to consider psychological reasons.
