Well I'm ready to have a go at the 'Sinclair Method' to reduce and hopefully stop drinking altogether. In case you aren't aware of it the method, briefly, comprises of taking a drug (Naltrexone or related) an hour before drinking. The effect is to stop the 'let's party' feeling that we can experience as the receptors in our brains which create that feeling are stopped from doing that. The process of 'extinction' whereby the brain 'learns' that there is no great excitement to be had from drinking happens gradually – though it varies from person to person according to what I have read.
