Helping an alcoholic quit

Does anyone know of anyway to help cut the cravings? Is there any natural herbs that can be taken?

  • Oh, baby, I only wish I did. I do tend to believe depression is the root cause of most alcoholism and drug abuse. Maybe if they were being treated with anti-depressants that would help? I dunno, I failed miserably in this area, my DH died drunk driving.....shouldn't have even answered.....

  • It depends on if you are pregnant or not. Disulfiram is a drug that makes you really sick if you drink while taking it, its an aversion drug. There have been great succeses with it. I don't know if you can take it if prenant or BFeeding then again pick your battles...
