The person suffering from alcohol use disorder must first make the decision to stop using alcohol. Without such a resolve, achieving long-term sobriety is unlikely.
Prevention of Alcoholism
Prevention of alcoholism is best accomplished by abstinence. You must first have access to alcohol before becoming dependent on the substance. A strong family history of alcoholism is a warning you are at increased risk of becoming dependent on alcohol. Increased awareness of such a risk factor may help modify your attitude toward alcohol consumption. A strong social support system and early medical or psychiatric intervention may also help prevent the escalating consumption of alcohol so characteristic of alcoholism.
