Reply To: Dealing with Alcohol Dependency
If you can think of a suitable reward find a image/photo of it, photocopy it or print it out. Something visible to remind you what you are denying your self the booze for. Think! You are not giving up drinking you are gaining this (whatever it is) reward. Look at it before you get the beer out of the fridge and when you pour it away afterwards. Look at it every time you feel like a drink. Every time you look at it you are getting closer to achieving it and making it real. The first few sessions should be the hardest after that it will only get easier.
