To learn how to live without alcohol, you should understand that life without alcohol is beautiful, interesting and amazing, and also learn to say "No!" This will help youth to avoid becoming a victim of alcoholism and drinking is a good answer to the question, how not to drink at all alcohol. If in the first case to abstain from alcohol would not be a problem, that depends on alcohol to understand how to give up alcohol, have to go through and understand a lot.
The importance of education
Can a grown man give up alcohol, which largely depends on education. And here a very important position of the parents. The probability that the man will not drink, if at the time he was able to explain in child language what alcohol actually drink only weak people, unable to abandon the use of harmful substances. And answer Yes to the question: "If the uncle drinks, he's sick?".
Accordingly, parents should be an example to your child: the word should not disperse from business, and therefore in the presence of a child should not drink at all, or do so minimally. In the future it will allow him, being in company, abstain from alcohol or to comply with the rules. Or not he will quit drinking, which largely depends on attitudes that have been imparted to parents.
If the baby often present at the feasts, when drinking all the relatives, mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, nothing bad to drink alcohol he would not see. So when peers invite him to drink beer or vodka to get to know new sensations and relax, you are unlikely to refuse. If he likes alcohol or teenager will continue to succumb to the persuasion of peers, the probability of early development of alcoholism. And any disciplinary measures on the part of parents to explain to the child how to drink alcohol, be ineffective: too bad example they filed in time.
It is also very important to teach the child to say "No!" And this applies not only to alcohol, but also Smoking, drugs. This science is very useful in the future: the world is full of temptations, and will only be a plus, if you teach a teenager to fight against what can hurt him. And should be taught not in adolescence, when the teenager came home drunk, and before school age to the idea that alcohol, Smoking, drugs – the evil was firmly entrenched in his head.
What to do dependent on alcohol?
But what if the person has already fallen in psychological and psychological dependence on alcohol and wants to get rid of it? And avoiding alcohol is really his heart's desire, instead of seeking deliverance from addiction, made under duress. As experience has shown, forced deliverance from alcohol usually gives very short-term result.
The best way to learn to live without alcohol will contact the psychiatrist, psychologist and take courses of rehabilitation. Psychiatrist needed to rid the body of physical dependence, detoxify, restore work damaged by ethanol in liver cells, brain, kidney, cardiovascular, nervous, and other affected systems.
If necessary will carry out coding (psychological or using medications). This will cause the dependent disgust about the mere thought of alcohol, and will refrain from drinking. However, there is one point: if a person slips and drink, all the settings will fly, and he himself would be very, very bad. In this case, you need to urgently run to the doctor to unlock.
With the lock need to be very careful. Do not trust traditional healers, witch doctors and similar "experts". Coding should be a doctor who has a diploma from a reputable University and relevant specialization. Otherwise, success can not be achieved, and the money will be wasted.

Do not be afraid of sidelong glances of friends who are persuaded to abandon the new position, claiming that one hundred grams is the norm, which helps to relax and nothing bad will happen. This is a test of strength: if you are a valuable person, he will accept your decision and unconditionally agree that the way to live better. But if he doesn't care about you, then it becomes relevant is another question: and whether such a company? And this applies also to those situations where it is necessary to sign a contract, or during communication with the authorities. Do not drink out of fear to disrupt the deal or lose their jobs.
