Yes, IF able to reduce gradually (maybe a half drink every 2-3 days) you will not have withdrawal. It's easier if you eat a healthy diet (rich in organic veggies and fruits, low in sugars/starches), take a quality multivitamin and the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid). Kudzu root proven to reduce cravings for alcohol. Exercise, stress reduction, counseling & EFT can help. See http://tinyurl.com/jhhmexs
