Alcoholism sucks.  It farking sucks.

If you can't stop even if you want to, seek help.  Most insurance will pay for alcohol (and benzodiazepine) detox.  Go to a highly ranked hospital - most now have chemical dependence wards, and they're quite civilized.  You're a patient not an inmate.

And check out an AA meeting.  Those two letters are going to bring out trash talkers but decide for yourself.  People want to help, and they don't want anything from you.

Call the AA Central Office near you, found at AA.org, and ask them to find you a "speaker" meeting.  You won't be asked to speak there, except possibly to read from a script, but no one will pressure you. You don't have to identify as a newcomer, or even an alcoholic.  Just listen.

If people pressure you, leave.  If it sounds too cultish, leave.  If you don't like the coffee, leave.  It's not supposed to be like that.  Find another meeting.

Until we can implant lasers in our brains, those are the best two options we have.

For those that don't buy that "surrender to a higher power" nonsense of AA, there is Rational Recovery

Plenty of atheists and agnostics work 12 Step programs.

If anyone at a 12 Step meeting tries to push their religious beliefs on you, don't just leave.

Give 'em the stink eye and leave.
