Ingestion of alcohol is acceptable so long as one consumes safe and healthy amounts of the substance. Problem arises when one becomes a binge drinker. This is when alcohol can have repercussions that can be termed as nasty, to say the least.
Therefore, at the outset, it is imperative to understand weather ones drinking patterns are safe or risky and harmful.
If the results of this assessment point to the latter, it is time to take immediate corrective action.
There is help available by way of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), 12th Step Committee.
The one simple requisite to get the best out of this simple program is to be honest to one. Success stories abound wherein addicts have helped themselves out of the quagmire simply by being fearless and thorough throughout the AA program.
AA recognizes that the enemy, alcohol, is cunning, inexplicable as well as powerful. Therefore to overpower it, the program advises to turn to God, the only One who has all the power. Ask for His protection and care with complete abandon and do not adopt any half measures in the AA principles. Success is guaranteed!
