Few people know that alcohol and fructose use the same pathways in the liver. So, when you drink, do not drink pop, soda or any other product with High Fructose Corn Syrup in it that same day. Drink only very dry wine, as a sugar addiction coupled with an alcohol addiction makes it twice as bad and hard to break.

When trying to quit, do not let yourself get hungry, but avoid high carb snacks. Nuts, veggies with dips, moderate fruit all work. Shiritake noodles (yam based) work great with any soup, stew or sauce you like to satisfy appetite and fill you up with low carbs.

Alcohol depletes vitamin B1. It is water soluble and easily drained from your system. To fight back, buy the fat soluble form, called Benfotiamine, and use as a suplement. In short, you will lessen metabolic damage. Hopefully, this will mean it becomes easier to quit as the side effects of quitting are less.

Likewise, vitamin C is depleted. Same story, top up vitamin C as soon as possible.

Repair liver stress with silymarin and NAC (n-acytlcysteine).

Some people find niacinamide (a form of vitamin B3) lessens cravings. | do not confuse with niacin (also B3), as niacin causes flushing.
