Preparing for battle
Before looking for the most effective recipes and ways for a woman to stop drinking alcohol alone at home, you should understand your own mind a little. Remember the reasons that led you to embark on the muddy path of alcohol addiction, to understand what exactly led you to take up alcohol for the first time. And then give yourself a specific answer to the following questions.
Because it is necessary
Self-treatment for female alcoholism must begin with a specific and clear understanding of why a sober life is necessary. What will the woman get in return?
- Grandchildren love.
- children's location.
- Family well-being.
- Establishment of personal life.
- A new, more stable job.
- Improvement of the financial situation.
- Restoration of battered health.
Each person will have their own incentive, what is worth fighting for. This thread throughout the difficult path to sobriety will support a person and prevent him from going astray. Don't forget that even with the full support of family and friends, the fight against alcoholism, especially independently, can go on for months, if not years.
You must really want to get back to a healthy and sober life. Only then will the results that appear will become a new incentive and create a powerful reason to be proud of yourself and your achievements. One more truth must be remembered - a sober life is based on one's own full responsibility for all events that occur in it.
To first understand yourself and discover the origins of the problem, it is worth visiting a psychologist. A specialist will help to level the time and understand the origins that led a woman to start seriously abusing alcohol. According to studies, the reasons that most often force a woman to drink regularly include the following situations:
- prolonged depression;
- difficult stressful situations;
- hereditary predisposition;
- disorder and problems of personal life;
- constant conflicts, hostility in the service, in the family;
- environment (husband drinks, friends, co-workers constantly organize meetings).
By the way, the psychologist will give effective advice, to better fill the void. After all, when the constant use of alcohol leaves life, the person usually has depression. You should find useful activities that help you get out of depressive states and fill the spiritual void.
Women's alcoholism must be treated immediately, it must not be put aside and it must not continue to self-destruct. In fact, with each "drunk" year, the return to a sober life becomes increasingly difficult.
