This subreddit is a place to motivate each other to control or stop drinking. We welcome anyone who wishes to join in by asking for advice, sharing our experiences and stories, or just encouraging someone who is trying to quit or cut down.
For everyone on the subreddit, and for the sake of your own recovery, only participate here when you're sober. (?)
Here in /r/stopdrinking you can get a badge to share with everyone how long you've been free from alcohol.
Note: Badge requests are handled by an actual person, not a bot. Please be patient, and do not send multiple requests.
#stopdrinking IRC chat!
This channel is a way for Stopdrinking members to connect with each other and get support in real-time. We ask that people only participate when sober.

Quote of the Moment
SD is the best subreddit. I've checked them all so it's a certified 100% 22-carat fact. Slather me in cocoa butter and slip me a coffee drink, it's another day of sobriety!
Remember: /r/stopdrinking is a great place to get support, but only a doctor can give you medical advice. If you are experiencing acute or persistent physical or psychological symptoms (including withdrawal), please contact a medical professional immediately.
