One of the most frequent questions I get is, how long does it take to stop drinking alcohol?
And for me, that’s the easiest question to answer, it can be over in an instant, because stopping drinking alcohol is the simplest thing. Once you don’t put any more into your mouth anymore, the drinking alcohol part of it is gone. But people conflate it with the habit that they’ve built up over the years. And they say, “Well, you know, I’m still trying to stop drinking alcohol”, when I’m breaking the habit, the question should be, “How long does it take to kill the habit that’s been built around alcohol.” And, for me this is the thing that takes time. And it all depends on so many different things.
