Doing an alcohol detox means you cut out or cut down on your level of alcohol consumption for a set period of time. Generally two weeks is a good period if you have been drinking more than two or three times per week. The basic idea is for you to allow your body a bit of time and space to recover.
Before you begin the detox process, however, if you have been drinking heavily and feel physical symptoms of not drinking such as shaking etc. definitely check with your doctor. You may have a physical addiction to alcohol and quite possibly will need to wean yourself off alcohol much more gradually.
However if you have none of those physical withdrawal symptoms you are ready to begin an alcohol detoxification program. The first thing you want to do is prepare. The second thing you want to do is to prepare.
Before you begin you will need to figure out what you want to accomplish during the two weeks and what you will be doing during that time you would normally have spent drinking.
