Re: help

Welcome to the boards Lovergurl!

Could you give me a little more information on your situation? It's difficult to give advice without knowing what you are asking for.

As far as stopping drinking cold turkey...well, it could be bad or not so bad or not even an issue. It all depends on the severity of the drinking - the length of time/amount of alcohol consumed on a regular basis.

Personally, I am a 38 year old female, average height/weight proportional. I have been drinking since 14 or so. Never had a prolem until about 1.5 years ago...consumption got up to 10 or 12 beers a night - more on weekends.

I quit cold turkey and didn't have a MAJOR problem, although I could tell - had some signs of w/d...shakey hands, sweating, irritable, etc. Not sick in bed, but definitely not completely well either.

Please give us more info and I'm sure others will come along and share with you.

Angela
