It got better for me as my time away from a drink built AND I worked my recovery program.

I tried to quit before not understanding about recovery. I simply stopped drinking. I had no tools to run a healthy life, or anything to fill the void now in my life. I was miserable and of course returned to drinking.

In my experience, we need both to make our lives better. Quit and action of working our program of choice.
