I sometimes get asked from people

whether they should and how to stop

drinking cold turkey in other words just

one day I'm drinking in the next day I

don't drink my answer to that is well I

have two answers I start with a question

how much are you drinking so if you're

drinking a small amount meaning you

drinking one to three drinks a day

recommendation is to not ever stop cold

turkey without really getting a good

consultation you need to know how much

you're drinking you need to have some

advice from a professional about whether

you stopped drinking will you experience

withdrawal symptoms and cold turkey is

puts you at risk for having alcohol

withdrawal syndrome and that can be

medically dangerous so again it whether
