Drink less or drink less stronger stuff.
Do another drug which you have no tolerance against. (Cannabis is highly recommended, XTC and cocaine are okay too if cannabis is not enough)
It sounds lame but, you can only help yourself.
You are probably the only one willing to help yourself.
Get the laziest hobby of all: listening to music or watching tv series and movies. These are the very things that I can enjoy at at any time.

I'm sorry for your lost but it sucks not having a dad and being black. Your mom was a slut and dumb by getting pregnant.

There's two routes you can go in situations like this, full blown lifelong alchie which is common but gotta ask yourself why you justify doing this *something bad happened in my life(happens to literally everyone) and I didn't deal with it like an adult and talk it out and realize time will heal this wound* or you can study the art of moderation and make alcohol a fun indulgence again and not a liquid coping mechanism for being an essentially broking human being(not putting you down this shit happens, life is rough) Something i've learned throughout the years is if you're fucked up all the time you probably wont ever know what you really wanna get out of this shit so it's important to get sober long enough to figure that out, write it down and look at it every day of your life no matter how amazing or miserable it may be at the time. I could go into depth on why your personal situation relates to me hard af but it's unimportant what is really important is you don't let a single event(especially one that wasn't in your hands) dictate what your life becomes afterwards because then you're just being a submissive bitch to the struggles of everyday life and that's some pussy ass faggot shit. Do whatcha like tho it's your life, I just wrote a fucking novel fit for /qq/ cause i'm half drunk but I doubt that makes any of what I said less true. Also that other posters suggestion to switch to just bud is generally a solid health move, a lot of people in your situation don't like that because it puts your thoughts on the forefront of your mind and alcohol blocks such thoughts usually but realistically to get through a problem avoiding it makes it worse and going at it full force finds the solution. Fuck some good pussy too that always gets me out of a slump and gets me a different head high than any other drug out there.

Do try and keep it to evening/nightime drinking, kick it way down as well, a pint is enough. Wake up the next day, basically feeling like crap regardless. Get through the day not drinking, drink at night. do projects while drinking.

1 and a half handles a week 'would' be pretty harmful in a short amount of time. As current you would be drinking about as much as much as and very heavy drinker would or could possibly drink. in a week.

Drink at night, when you would adjust you would start wanting or needing a drink about the same time you usually drink.

Help,, for quick detoxification if you get shakes and all by now, go to an er for alcohol withdrawal. They would give you benzodiazipines there and a prescription to last about 5 days. Make sure you emphasize you need enough to last long enough.

In 3 days you would be much better overall, 5 days may feel like everything is basically back to normal.

Sleep, mirtazapine is a anti depressant but will put you to sleep. You an get on a regular sleep and wake pattern pretty fast with these. A hospital may not prescribe these. An urgent care center may be more helpful overall, usually with librium, try to get 20 25. There is a drug called ondansetron/vivitrol is approved for alcohol dependence, it basically makes you feel like you don't care about alcohol or the cravings, consumption level and life revolving around alcohol will lessen. Maybe not even think about it. But try to have counseling, a even I guess
with this drug.

I am telling you, you do not want to waste day after day month after month, eventually year after year on alcohol. A pint every night, you can easily half that after a few nights of drinking a pint, then half of a half pint, then stay away from alcohol.

I just wanted to say that there are some heavy drinkers who finish a handle in 2 days, meaning they'd go through 3.5 a week.

In my experience, ontadestrone is prescribed for acid reflux, often associated with alcohol abuse. Is that what you mean, or is that another medication all together?

ondansetron helps with the nausea
that feeling you get in the gut that you just *need* some alcohol? the uneasy churning? ondansetron eliminates it and it really does help take your mind off wanting a drink if you are suffering from the nausea that kicks in.
you don't want to be using it for too long though, especially if your liver isn't in the best shape. it's a very effective short term treatment. i'm an emt and we use it quite a lot.

remember that drinking happens in the *now*. you are suffering, you have been wronged, but that has all happened in the *past*. in order to control your drinking you must be focused on how you are feeling today. the most you can do in a single day is to be responsible for one day.

for now, give yourself some time. it's not good to drink but it is very normal to grieve and nobody can seriously expect you to get over your mother's death within two weeks. if alcohol is making you feel better for now that's okay but remember it's still your responsibility to feel better and alcohol can't do it all for you.

at some point, you will move on. you need to be aware of this and be ready to quit drinking. you'll know you've moved on when you're no longer looking forward to it.

i'm sorry this happened to you.
