In brief: Look For Support

Fisrt make the decision that you want to stop and realize that you will need support.
Find a 12-step program that addresses your particular substance of abuse. Family and friends can be a great source of support. A physical exam by your primary care physician would be a good idea. An evaluation by a psychiatrist or addiction specialist would also prove helpful. Good luck, many do succeed.
