Cindy, how long should I stop drinking to get rid of my dependence?

Cindy, writes:
Cameron, when you have just stopped drinking, you think about it often, but those thoughts will stop gradually. It is hard to say how long it takes. People who drink a lot get used to alcohol. They need more each time to still feel the effects. To stop drinking breaks off that habituation, but if you start drinking again, you redevelop it very quickly.
