If you have a problem with controlling the amount of alcohol you consume, just stay away from it altogether to eliminate the risk of binge drinking. You must train yourself to live without alcohol. To do this you should avoid people and places that make drinking the norm, such as bars and parties where alcohol will be consumed.
