Learn from the Stars!
There are several celebrities who did overcome their addiction. Stars like Robert Downey Jr, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Angelina Jolie, Demi Lovato, and Daniel Radcliffe went to rehabs or found out their own ways to get sober. Not only that, they have stayed sober after that.
To be "clean and sober" is increasingly becoming uncommon these days. It seems like everyone is either into alcohol, tobacco, or drugs. The reasons vary widely―from peer pressure to sheer curiosity―but it is commonly seen that the habit is picked up in the younger years.
My personal opinion is, if you have tried it, just for the sake of trying, that is acceptable. But, why make it a habit when you know it is eventually going to destroy you? It may seem that your problems seem to vanish after a couple of drinks; but just think, do they really? Drinking is not decreasing your problems but rather compounding them further. Quit consuming before it begins to consume you.
For those who have already crossed over to the other side, take heart, it's never late to choose the right path. So, why not start right now? You have so many things to do instead of thinking about your next round. Here are some inspirational quotes and sayings; some will make you laugh, but we hope that the impact will be much more than the joke and might just get you started on the road to recovery.
