In brief: With help

Alcohol addiction is a mental and physical illness.
The first step is admitting you have a problem. Addictive disorders can be treated by addiction specialists but a good first step is to look for local alcoholics anonymous meetings near you. Your local mental health clinic usually can help, too. Sometimes inpatient care is needed for withdrawal and aftercare.
