So I have anecdotally heard of a technique, whereby people swap things to achieve sobriety as opposed to going cold-turkey immediately. I know the Australia Government did something similar in trying to tackle their obesity crises, but I am curious if the notion that someone could drink hard-liquor, switch to beer, and then cut to light-beer, actually works. Are there any thoughts or success stories for people who have used this technique out there?? Would this be something people could see 'softening the blow' when it comes to sobriety??
