Alcoholism is a chronic illness and is not something that can be stopped by willpower alone. It is a physical, spiritual and mental illness that requires the correct treatment. The initial phase is an alcohol detox which involves consultation with a medical professional and detox medication to assist with the detox process and prevent serious complications such as seizures. It is extremely dangerous to stop drinking if you are physically addicted and can be life threatening. Recovery from Alcohol Addiction requires inpatient treatment to understand and learn about the illness and to gain acceptance and the tools needed to stay sober long term.
