Patient discussion about cutting

Q. can he simply cut down? When a problem drinker take effort to stop his habit, can he simply cut down?

A. It can be appreciated if he is not toooooo late. So it depends. If that person has been diagnosed as an alcoholic, the answer is "no." Alcoholics who try to cut down on drinking rarely succeed. Cutting out alcohol--that is, abstaining - is usually the best course for recovery. People who are not alcohol dependent but who have experienced alcohol-related problems may be able to limit the amount they drink. If they can't stay within those limits, they need to stop drinking altogether.
