I read Hope's posting to you. It was ominous. One item... sleep. I'm guessing that if you go for three days without sleeping and without alcohol, you'll sleep... very soundly.... without the drugs that you've acquired. If you're a brain surgeon, I suggest canceling all appointment for two weeks.
If you're just a run-of-the-mill human like me, do the best you can at your livelihood without drugs or alcohol. Give yourself a week and see how you feel.
I've just been reading this book by Susan Powter called, "Sober... And Staying That Way." She talks about us taking vitimins to decrease or irradicate the craving for alcohol. I've read this in two other books as well. This sounds like a good thing to me. I hope this helps. Julie.
: Hello. I am a young alcoholic who absolutely cannot sleep for about 72 hours between my drunk periods. I have come across a pretty good quantity of Xanax and Ambien. Will these medications help me get some sleep during my next detox? I also want to state that I do not intend to get addicted to the pills, I am trying to clean my life up and sober up.
: Thank you.
