No more blood pressure, panic and heart issues they are only minor so this taper is working and I feel okay. Down to 12 beers a day and I feel so much better now. Hopefully I can get it down to 8-10 this week

It was for a week about 4 years ago. I'm up to a handle of rotgut vodka and in addition a bottle of wine or a six pack per day now so I'm not particularly comfortable with the idea of going cold turkey. And fuck going to a pirate medfag and getting pills and having him do an exam and shit then hearing the timeworn lecture, fuck that noise.

The best part is I don't even want to back out of my taper. It sucks when I finish that last drop of alcohol for the day but at least I'm a lot better of now. Fuck those withdrawal symptoms.

first solid shit in weeks. 3 days sober. thank god.

Are there any supplements for alcoholics? It seems that everything online is just for recovering alcoholics, not ongoing. I was trying things like b complex, magnesium taurate, zinc, and a few others, but nothing seems to do much for anxiety after eating or my raised heartrate after my first drink, which I assume has to do something with my GABA downregulation.

I'm on multivitamin and milk thistle, and sometimes a b complex. Tudca or udca helps with liver damage, but only if you're not drinking at the time.

Oh, another thing, activated charcoal. If you take like 10-20 tabs in a night, it will prevent alcohol absorption, but if you're doing so right before bed it might help your morning. Makes you a more expensive drunk but does have its benefits. Wear black underpants tho

Had to take two courses of antibiotics for a skin infection so I took two weeks off twice but that was over ten years ago.

Last year, I think I totalled maybe 15 days sober at the very most. Did five of those in a row.
>>

>raised heartrate after my first drink
There's a youtube video about that that's shared here regularly, about addiction when booze works as an upper instead of a downer.
I don't have the link or remember the title, but I'm sure some Anon will help.

A couple of months. I've tried quitting again. Since I moved back home with my parents, and getting on meds and into therapy, I've drank twice. The first time, I had like 4 drinks, but it fucked me up with my meds. Then like 3 weeks ago, I had a Guinness, and that actually got me a little buzzed, but I felt depressed afterwards. I haven't had a drink since. I felt tempted the other night, but otherwise, I haven't had any cravings. I just want to get my life together, and maybe only socially drink, but for now, I want to stay sober at least until I get over my depression.

Hanging onto that "maybe one day I can drink normally" thing is super annoying. I still do it. 37 yrs old, tons of examples why i should not ever drink again, but i will. Good luck to you man.
>>
Is is really just 6 p.m or is my clock lying hard?
>>
>>9927743
Yeah, I mean deep down in the back of my mind, I know how easily I will slip down to drinking a lot again. I've told myself so many times that if I were to drink, it would be only socially. Then I end up drinking alone after a couple of weeks.

I just hate the idea of complete abstinence because I do still want to have a social life, and I feel like I'd be a wet blanket if I went out and stayed sober, not even having one or two drinks. Plus it sucks being the only sober one in the group. I honestly don't like hanging out with people if they are drinking, unless I'm drinking myself.

I guess at least I have weed still I guess. I haven't smoked weed in like 2 months though, and I plan on staying sober while I find a new job.
>>
>>9927756
Yep. I fucking hate daylight savings time. It's so depressing that it gets so fucking dark before 5 PM.
>>
>>9927764
AA people suggest not to make any promises like " i will never drink again ". They suggest just going day to day and doing your best 24 hours at a time. I find thats better than holding oneself to this lifetime deal.

You may drnk again, you may not, but just keep trying! Never give up and you will be OK.
>>
>>9927781
Thanks man. I'll admit, I went to AA and I just didn't like it, it just felt like it was too much of a cult to me, but I do like that philosophy of taking it one day at a time.

We may slip up from time to time, but no need to beat ourselves up if we break our sobriety. We just need to be self-aware of what is going on, and not fall back into drinking. I've felt pretty good lately though. I'm still depressed, but I'm at least learning to deal with my depression without self medicating. It kind of helps that I'm on bupropion, and drinking on that shit kind of fucks me up, so even if I slip up, I know I can't have too much or else I'll risk having seizures and even death. I swear that shit potentiates alcohol even more than benzos. I'm not a light weight, but I felt a bit of a buzz just drinking that Guinness a couple of weeks ago. Shit, I even bought some kombucha which had less that .5% ABV and I swear I got a slight buzz from drinking 2 of those suckers.
>>
>>9927200
I love you all, remember that.
>>
I'm at 1.75L/week, whisky. I'm hovering between buzzed and drunk from basically 7pm to midnight every night, for roughly the past couple years, only missing a couple days at a time. I was worried about going home for the holidays, but I actually made it a bit over 3 days without any alcohol or physical symptoms. I was just really looking forward to a drink when I got home. No shakes, not really irritable (tried to keep tabs on myself).

Am I just lucky enough to be able to go cold turkey, or am I not actually drinking enough to form a physiological dependence?
>>
>>9927773
Start getting up at dawn and go outside in direct light for an hour a day.
>>
>>9927852
I get up pretty early, but it's been pretty cold here lately. I should just man up and go for a walk or something though.
>>
>>9927824
That’s like five airplane bottles a day, pretty manageable. Still not a good habit to have though.
>>
>>9927868
Preferably around noon for maximum exposure.

And walks make you feel great afterwards, almost like you’ve earned your drink.

It is the worst to be honest, the broken sleep doesn't even give your body time to heal or feel better. The thumping in your chest and nausea are crazy.
Just drink 1-2 beers and try to ride it out.
They may help some.

the temptation to drink more is always there regardless if you type a schedule or not
you can also just remember "drink less than yesterday"
once you get below a shitton of drinks per day it doesnt make much of a shit if you have 3 or 4 drinks anyway

>just drink less lol
having a concise schedule to abide by/measure actual against helps a lot of people trying to taper. maybe it doesn't help you, or maybe it does.

>once you get below a shitton of drinks per day it doesnt make much of a shit if you have 3 or 4 drinks anyway
it does if you allow the number to creep back up. again, having a schedule to stick to is a check on that, and helps you monitor rebound drinking
>>
>>9929424
eat. your body wants alcohol, but it also just wants calories and to feel full. splurge on delivery or whatever if you don't feel like cooking or don't have the ingredients at home already. try having a flavored beverage you enjoy that isn't alcoholic, too, like juice or soda.

also, do something to occupy your brain. i like playing online blitz chess, going down wikipedia article rabbit holes, online window shopping, etc. if you have no ideas, you could try something like stumbleupon.

Could always use weed like I did to get off alcohol. I barely remember 2016 and missed half of 2017, but I don't drink or smoke any more and weed is easy as fuck to put down.

He died of respiratory arrest due to an overdose of benzo+opiates, iirc.
He obviously needed a large dose of benzo, equivalent to his daily consumption of alcohol. We know they don't mix well with alcohol, but it's also true of opiates : it "relax" the body so much it stops breathing (like dying of old age, at least he went in peace.)
He was given opiates to reduce pain, can't remember if it was due to his digestive system being fucked or some random back pain. (Medical marijuana may be a solution to replace opiates in similar cases.) Withdrawals are usually not painful.

The clinic was closed as it wasn't the first death for similar reason, the doc has had his licence revoked.

>>9930232
How do you know you didn't puke a turd?

>>9929760
You need to do a taper. Either home made beer taper, or medical-style benzo taper (or you can do both, but it's complicated to get the doses right. It's not recommended to mix booze and benzo, but you're already doing it anyway.)
It's very hard when you're addicted to both, but it's still just a taper. You can do it outpatient or inpatient. I'd recommend inpatient because it's safer and easier to not relapse in the middle of it, but if you don't have insurance the main difference is that there isn't a cute nurse waking you up every 2 hours of the night to check your vitals, your bed is more comfortable, and your usual liquor store is as easily accessible as it always was (and will be).

Not really trying to sweeten the withdrawls, but for me the period AFTER the worst ones are over is always the time i relapse. In fact, during heavy withdrawl I dont even want to drink. The 6-12 months of psyc terror is what gets me every time
>>
>>9930366
Well, now you know you can't celebrate your sobriety with alcohol, or relapse in any way. At least not right after a taper.
I did it a dozen times, including several times in detox/rehab, before finally sticking to the wagon. At least for now.
I'm now a year dry, using pot as substitute. It's not perfect, but it's better than drinking a litre of vodka daily.

"Bad cop" in this situation was pretty shitty. That's incredible you only got a bit of assault.

I remember I was 19 once, and I'm Canadian in a small city, I got lost when I was piss drunk at 3AM and knocked on some rando door because I thought I was getting frostbite and asked to "stand in your entryway for 10". Cops showed up lel. Drove me home, and that was it.

Lol the shit we do when we're drunk

Yeah I was so lucky. I went to the er the next day for withdrawals and they referred me to the mental health hospital where I could medically detox. Best decision ever.

You got legal aid there? Lawyer won't be cheap
>>
>>9930640
There's a chance that I can find a way to get a grand up front and hopefully a payment plan after that. Otherwise, yeah we do have legal aid, would be about 800-1500 total, but the fines that would be reduced would put it at about the defense costs, just a matter of finding someone who will take me.

Family is poor and can't help, don't expect them to, it was my mommy's car.

But I'm 30 and it's a first offense, and I have legit PTSD I can get dx'd in an instant if I can find an affordable psych. I might get out on reckless, who knows. I'm just praying I can contest the intoxilyzer, which was accepted by a judge in Canada to be unreliable in 2016 but sadly is still in appeals so no precedent.

This was partially spurred by the fact that I've been super anxious about work lately while getting horrible sleep. I saw a thing new year's eve about how drinking any alcohol at any time of day (not just before bed) can significantly impact these two things.

So far I've been feeling pretty good, though super tempted (especially at dinner time, when I tend to start my evening drinking sessions). I was even able to get up at 5:30 this morning to do extra stuff before work.

I quit daily/binge drinking for about six months after my son was born because I just couldn't sleep off the booze anymore. Then he started sleeping better so the drinking slowly increased again over the next two years. Now the wife is three months pregnant and I know I need to stop before the new baby gets here.

You'll be good in a few days. If yu aren't too sick grab some chicken soup or something.

At detox they pound us with ginger ale. They say your body is craving the sugar that's in alcohol

I remember I got this new job at dollar general and the first day was also the first day of wds and I was pouring sweat and stuttering and looking like a madman. Yet I somehow pulled it together long enough to make it through 4 hours.
Halfway through my shift they just said ""yeeah we uh got things covered, we are slow so uhhh go home""
Then tried to pawn off me the new hire to the other 2-3 stores around my county.
I never got another shift again. But damn I got a card with like 28bucks on it and got like 8 bucks of gas money and 20buckeroos of el cheapo booze.

Aa isn't that bad, my man. Alcoholism isn't a completion. It doesn't matter how much you drink. If you drink once a year and wind up sleeping in your back seat in a parking lot, you're an alcoholic. It's what it does to you.

I've been medically detoxed with ladies who drink a bottle of wine a night. That's like four Fkn beers. I more than quatrople that. It's a physical and MENTAL thing
>>
Dunno how you dudes could handle withdrawals at work. I remember passing out in my bosses office when I would drink at work. It was award when they found all the bottles in my locker.

basically i would get real fucked up friday and saturday from quitting time and then all day saturday. I would taper on sunday and feel sort of shitty but manageable. I would then drink a few on monday and then taper back to thursday at which point i would break the taper and repeat the process friday.

Needless to say this got out of hand quickly after a few months.

I usually start drinking around 6pm, kid is in bed by 8pm, then I pick up the pace. So I'm usually just a little buzzed before he's in bed.

day 104 here. still no booze, cough syrup, hand sanitizer, or mouthwash. Still smoking pot and around 35 cigs a day. No AA, cold turkey detox with full on DTs and a seizure I'm told the last time too. AMA

Samefag here. Good for you man. Aa to me is like these threads, just a bunch of fags you have something common with

Aren't the seizures awesome? And by awesome I mean shit. Last time I had one was in my gfs bed and pissed myself. Was unresponsive for ten hours

Drank the next day

People who are anti AA always bring up the relapse rates as a reason why AA doesnt work and it's like.. I think that's more a testament to how fucked up alcoholism is rather than that AA doesn't work. Doctors don't do any better. It's a shitty, shitty 'disease' and I think any small bit of success is a plus.

The thing is anybody else who is there is also there because they have problems with alcohol. And I don't think people who go to AA gossip about who's in AA. I understand the fear but I don't think there's anything to worry about.

that being said I've never been to AA but I'm going to my first meeting on Monday. Luckily where I live there's a couple 'young person' meetings a week (I'm 29) which I think will be an easier transition into the AA climate
>>
>>9931010
Notice how I said addicts, not Alcoholics? I wind up in detox with people who are on all sorts of shit
>>
>>9930972
I might be delusional but I'm a better parent when buzzed, I guess I just feel more like myself, and the alternative I just withdraw and get lazy.

I know it's not sustainable though.

And ya second kid, you're going to need to help the first couple months, you're not going to sleep. And newborns aren't fun. Precious, but definitely not fun.

I hope you can pull it off. I don't know what your wife is like, but unless she has outside support like a mom of her own, she'll need you.

Young persons meetings can be good. I did a few. Although the best were the ones with the old timers who have like 10+ years of sobriety. A lot of wisdom in those ones. Young people meetings are good for sharing etc, but the old drunks who are sober have all the advise.
>>
To the anon up there, I agree completely about those anti aa people. We do have a shitty "disease" anyone who claims otherwise has never been through it so they dont understand.

To the anon below don't worry about who you see there. One of the steps is not to mention who you do see there.vif anything you'll find a reason to bond

A lot of ppl in abusive relationships go to AA, even without substance problems themselves and even if their spouses are clean, they just need the support. It's a mixed bag.

My dad told my mom in numerous ways that he'd kill her, beat her senseless numerous times, tortured her by throwing 400F lasagna on her because he didn't feel like it that night...he went from charming to monster in a drink or two.

He's dead now, but my mom is a full on drunk with good days, but is on several heavy pain meds so she just nods like a smack head randomly if she's had literally one too many.

Really would be better if I abstained. Cut out for about 2 years with few fuckups until problems recently, now I'm pretty pathetic all over again.
>>
>>9931023
Fortunately we have a lot of family nearby, so the wife has a lot of help. Still, the first couple months with the first kid were brutal. I can't really even imagine what it'll be like with a toddler running around this time. Gotta sober up for this so I can be a good dad/partner.

I know what you mean about feeling like a better parent when buzzed though. I get a little more energy and worry less about things if I have a couple beers when I get home from work. I'll end up down on the floor playing with my kid until bedtime instead of just sitting on the couch watching him play when I'm sober and stressed out. I know that is not healthy though and in the long run my kids probably want a dad that doesn't die early from liver problems.
>>
Be a sober dad anon. My dad was a deadbeat alchy who ditched when I was four and its haunted me my whole life

I got my girlfriend pregnant and we had an abortion because we were on a meth/booze binge. It was almost a year ago and I haven't even thought about it because I can't deal with it
>>
>>9931137
Sounds like mine, he was an alcho and abuser, then my mom left him thinking he'd kill us all, probably true, and didn't ask for a dime in child support because he took life insurance out.
Found out when he died he took his policy out less than a year before his death. Would have given me a chance to go to school as he died when I was 15.

What a horrible abortion situation though, I'm so sorry, and I understand the crisis of trying to make the right choice.

The more I come here the more I realize my light addiction is nothing compared to some of the shit you all have been through. Day 5 sober, the shakes and nightmares are mostly gone, sleeping is still rough because I catch myself not breathing occasionally. Super fucking irritable and depressed, but the good news is I can't feel my liver anymore, which is probably a good sign.

I don't know how I'm going to make it past Friday, it was all I could do to not drive to the liquor store after dinner.

Shit man. Mine came back I was 14 but I think it made it worse. Showed up to my nans funeral and when my mom was grieving got her to sign a paper saying he doesn't owe any child support. It was mom and nan who raised me and my two brothers. On minimum wage. Mom worked at a thrift store. Nan was so broke all we ever had was stew and milk. She literally locked her door with a jimmy rig of a paint can and a bra strap. Couldn't afford to fix her fridge so she kept it cold against the window

Meanwhile dad was out buying corvettes

Mine just remarried another lesser abuser, knocked me around a great deal. She got an ok life I guess though. He treats her like shit but doesn't maul her, so she's got that going for her.

I know the feeling of the level of poverty for using the outside as a fridge. Damn squirrels were clawing at my screen window trying to get at my borscht. Heavy clothes and ambient heat from the adjacent apartments, saves a lot of money.

I'd recommend a low dose of CBD edible/oil if they're available in your state. I used to smoke weed and go out of my gourd with paranoia, but I switched to tinctures and it's so much more manageable. Just a few drops under the tongue for a minute and the nausea and anxiety mellows. Luckily I can go to a shop and buy exactly what I need, so ymmv.

>strong desire to consume vinegar
I had a surgery and didn't drink for 2 weeks afterward, but whenever I felt the urge to drink I would take a shot of apple cider vinegar to quell it.
>>
>>9931448
If you have it, eat the shit out of apple cider vinegar, ginger and garlic. It will give your immune system a minor boost.

If you have the ability, order l-glutamine. Costs 10 bucks, it's been clinically proven to fight alcohol cravings. It's specifically depleted by alcohol so it's a double whammy to recovery.

And tons of b-vitamins. 5-htp is good for mood, l-arginine is good for "get up and go" if you're depressed. Amino acids, well you're probably depleted anyway so it can't hurt. At best it'll give you an advantage. Just don't take 5-htp or tryptophan for more than a couple weeks in a row or you'll crash slightly.

you drank too much and now your liver, gallbladder and pancreas are not digesting fat. Happens to most after a bender. Don't drink and lit your liver heal. Eventually you will have normal shits.

It's called steathorria (sp?) and basically alcohol flushes everything out of your system so your body stops even trying to digest fats, hence the gross yellow shits. If it continues def go to a doctor though.

I started drinking 3 months ago after a breakup. I've been getting drunk every night. I blacked out twice in that time. 1 fifth and a 6 pack of beer would last me a week because I'm 23 years old and lightweight. Now the girl wants to get together again and she has no idea I've been doing this to myself, so I need to get my shit together. I've never experienced withdrawal symptoms, so I'm kinda scared. Do you have any suggestions?
>>
1 fifth and a 6 pack of beer a WEEK?

Why are you worried? Unless you ramp that up you have nothing to worry about.

Do you have stable income? Stable living arrangements? Stable method of transportation? Stable family life?
This is what you should be worrying about you fucking faggot.

Not saying he isn't wellcome, just saying that the dose he's on is bretty unproblematic. It would be extremely unlikely that he would get withdrawals except for maybe a bit of restlessness and sleeplessness.

You won't have life threatening delirium tremens. You most likely won't have physical withdrawals.
You'll have some light psychological withdrawals though. There isn't much to do about them beside having a good sleep hygiene (usual grandma tips, avoid screens and sport before bed, go to sleep on time, herbal infusions and shit), going outside daily for a walk, eating balanced food 3 times a day and staying hydrated.
Try not to drown your sorrows next time she breaks your heart, alcoholism and withdrawals only worsen.

Just went from beer to whiskey and have been having chest pains in the morning.

Please tell me I'm not dying. Past 2 days I've talked myself out of going to the ER (only 30). Don't think I can take it any more.
>>
>>9932778
go back to beer and taper dude
>>
>>9932809
I thought I was playing nice - I went from a dozen beers to half a fifth due to the bloat.

I'm praying it's heartburn, sleeping positions, stress, dehydration, or the cold, but I'm starting to run out of things to blame.

Yea, I was a paramedic for about 5 years. That's the worst part.

I'm playing back my patients' experiences and seeing their lives and trying to decide if I'm in their shoes or not ... then I stay there too long and remember what happened to them. Fuuuuck.

Pretty sure it's just panic/endocrinatic, but yea man. Certainly took men my age to the hospital to get roto-rooted.

What's the name of the cocktail where you take brown sugar, dissolve it in lime juice, add rum, and then top it off with seltzer?

Day 2
Went to AA and could barely spit out words
Shakiness has gone but diarrhea, insomnia and brain zaps have kicked in. My shit is disgusting
Just went to walmart and spent 50 dollars on healthy food, gatorade, sleepy time tea and even bought a candle.

Sorry for the blog post, but going back tomorrow.

I've read mindfulness meditation helps with the ruminations and anxiety. Scientifically proved to help to some extent.
>>
>>9933313
you should be sad about that instead

>>9933342
I'm more sad I lost a friend that loved me because of my negligence than about people who readily toss me aside.
>>
>>9933332
You know what? I reckon I probably need to see a doctor about it.

I hate to sound like a pussy but it's the anxiety that always leads me back to booze. I just cannot stand being alone at night, in a room, with only my thoughts for company.

>>9933390
try a hot bath and this

Thats why going for long walks helps so much.

Gets you out in the wide open world, fresh air. You see people. You get exercise -- which tires you out some naturally. Also releases endorphins. It's great.

I'm in the same boat. Gotta find ways to stay busy and spend time out of the room.

Hi all, i'm 18 and all alcohol tastes bad.

I want to post up with a bottle of gin or something but it all tastes like absolute poison to me.

What do?
>>
Relapsed last night. Destroyed my bank account, nearly got into a fight and wanted to kill myself. Woke to the neighbors dog yapping st 6am, been throwing up since and shaking like mad from just one night back on the vodka. I am in hell.
>>
>>9934409
drugs
>>
>>9934661
Iktf. I can drink about half a bottle of wine or three beers, a whole bottle or a sixpack and I get mild withdrawal syndromes already.

The heavy drinking days are over, i don’t feel like having to taper every single time I get drunk.
>>
>>9932062
that's just crazy enough to work though
>>
Woke up drunk. Somehow managed to get a samosa and three empty fifths with me in bed
>>
Gin tastes like pine needles. Us old to timers drink vodka.

Not recommended though. Being a drunk is a curse
