    @BMartt... Welcome and thanks for sharing with us. I'm happy to hear that you want to stop drinking alcohol. Doing that will definitely improve your life and your health.

    I don't know how much or how long you've been drinking, but you should know that quitting alcohol cold turkey can be dangerous for people who have been heavy drinkers. If that describes you, you may want to consider seeing an addiction specialist. They can help you quit alcohol in a way that will minimize any danger and withdrawal symptoms.

    Quitting drinking won't be easy. In fact, it will likely be very hard. But I can tell you that the struggle will be incredibly worth it. Take things a day at a time, or even an hour or minute at a time. Whatever helps keep you moving forward.

    Sending you lots of positive, sober vibes and tons of hope and encouragement.
