Yes, it is true that it is not easy to just stop it. Hence, I said it may be a hard journey for some. Please see what I especially said in my last paragraph. I know how it is because of my uncle who did not even quit but just lessened his alcohol intake. And he did that when he was already in his 60's. He started drinking while still in school. They lived in a town where people's pastime is drinking even early in the morning. So it was really difficult to kick the habit. It got worse when he got married and started having kids. He was often drunk. But the good thing was he was able to keep himself sober at work until he retired. We just looked at that as a good thing then. He was on and off with it until he finally decided to lessen the intake.
