The best Medium-like resources that I used were two Reddit forums: reddit.com/r/stopdrinking and reddit.com/r/stopsmoking

It just helps to be able to read and talk to other people going through the same thing. The /r/stopdrinking forum is basically program-neutral, meaning some of the people there are in AA and similar groups, but some aren’t, and everyone (mostly) respects that.

Medium itself was also very helpful when I quit smoking, although I hadn’t discovered it yet when I quit drinking.
