Key #3: Learn the Basic Steps
You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, or make the journey to sobriety any more mysterious than it has to be. There are certain steps that others have already used to quit drinking, and you can use them as well.
I’ve written before about 10 Steps to Quit Drinking Alcohol, and I even added an additional 10 Tips. I also mentioned that one of the more important things to do is to Avoid the 2 Major Mistakes that most alcoholics make.
Follow those basic steps as much as possible, and you will be following in the footsteps of millions of people who have ALSO quit drinking alcohol. Those people, by the way, quit on their own – without the need for AA or alcohol rehab.

Remember, the method you try might fail, but YOU don’t. If something doesn’t work, then change your approach to see different results. Now, let’s wrap this up:
