There's really no magic recipe for staying clean and sober, and anybody who's trying to find such, won't find such. Once you start drinking and you can't stop, then you're in 100% addicted. I always suggest to stay away from alcohol no matter what. I'm not saying tha you're never supposed to drink at parties or whatever, but don't abuse drinking because once you abuse drinking and just drink to must of alcohol then you will just without doubt get addicted, and then it's a long way out of this addiction and a lot of people fail during it. Be that strong and when you're having a bad time in your life don't try to run away from them, face whatever you have to because you will eventually need to face time sooner or later.
