There are meds to reduce cravings FYI. Antabuse and revia are a couple of them and they do work to an extent. a lot of ppl with drinking problems DON'T see they have a problem and/or don't want to stop. which explains your belief that "Dr.'s gave out meds to help people quit drinking, there probably wouldn't be many people with drinking problems."
