In brief: See an Addiction spl
There are many new ambulatory treatments for alcohol that can be done in an out patient basis in most cases.
See an addictionologist fit an evaluation.

In brief: Just stop
You may have withdrawal symptoms which can only be handled medically but for that, you will need a medical evaluation.
This can be done inpatient or out patient. With the use of appropriate protocols. Strategies to stop drinking bycutting down usually fail. If you had that level of control, you would not need to ask how to do it.
