Yes: The GI symptoms shortly after ingesting alcohol are nasty; strong motivation to not flirt with that first drink.

Disulfiram: I have prescribed in the past. What is your question? Disulfiram (antabuse) is used to treat moderate to severe alcohol use disorder by causing an “unpleasant reaction” when alcohol is used. It is a prescription medication that is best used as part of rehabilitation program that includes counseling.
