You are talking to your friend about his drinking problem. He does the first step and, accepts it is a problem while denying the help he needs.

There are two ways to stop an addiction.
1: Find supportive people, find a track or program to get enrolled in, and separate yourself from any form of the addiction you are trying to distance yourself from.
2: Totally disconnect from anybody that associates with the addiction. Cut yourself off from any places where you will be tempted to pick up where you left off. The last part is the hardest, you must accept that you no longer are addicted and are a totally different person even if you just quit five minutes ago.
