Trying to quit for good

I've had problems with alcohol in the past few years, had a few weeks- up to a month of sobriety during that time, but it always comes back.
I have a history of alcoholism in my family, and I don't want to end up like some of my relatives, so I'm trying to stop it before it gets even worse.
Any tips are welcome, or just some conversation.

Also I posted here, because I'm an atheist, and want rational, fact based recovery information; as opposed to religious, or spiritual, advice

Hi Will and welcome. You've come to a good place for support. Good for you to realize it's a problem now and get ahead of it. It's progressive and never gets better, only worse.

You've posted in the "Secular Connections Forum," so I suggest you do a Google Search for "Rational Recovery" and take the "AVRT Crash Course."

There's a bunch of interesting, on-going threads here at SoberRecovery. I suggest a daily check-in with the "24-Hour Recovery Connections."

Have you checked out any local meetings? Smart has some in your area. Or, do you have access to a medical outpatient group that isn't religious or 12-step based? There's a lot of good information in books too, from Smart, Rational Recovery, Lifering, SOS, etc.
