Re: URGENT:- Cold turkey off alcohol
My friend, I really do believe you need to work this out in rehab or privately with a doctor, a professional, to conquer this addiction. We need to have solid plans in place, live people to hold us accountable and live support.
There has not been success trying on your own and flying by the seat of your pants. Time to get a regulated plan in place. First step is to start with what you know... you are not capable of trying to ween down. No shame in that, it is like that for most. Truly, your best bet is to work on this with a doctor who can provide the meds you need to withdraw safely and to get support from AA, a social worker or phychologist. No man is an island in fighting addiction successfully. Through counseling, we discover the root of what we are hiding from as we lose ourselves in a drunken haze. We learn to cope with Life using a new set of strategies. This takes guidance. Withdrawal truly is but the first step in the process.
You can do this. You can retore your brain, your body, your spiritual self and find happiness in everyday life.
Let us all know how you are doing. We are all rooting for you.
