Advice needed urgently

Hey guys. So I have been drinking for about 2 weeks now, and had spent the whole morning vomiting. After I finally got fed up with spending my morning in the washroom, I caved and bought some booze. I have had about 4 shots in the past two hours, as I wanna keep as little a buzz as possible, so I can get back to life asap. Before that my last drink was at about 3 am last night. However I downed most of a 26 at around ten pm prior. I have just recently started eating again, only a banana, but its more then I have had in the past two weeks pretty much. I have also been taking multi vitamins, gatorade, and vitamin water. The problem is that this morning as I was lying in bed, not sleeping of course I literally thought I was dying. Everything was so vague and ominous and I just felt nervous. Usually I just tough out withdrawals, but I had a panic attack months ago, and since I never find the courage to stake it out, especially if im alone, which I am now. I actually called an ambulance as the attack was happening cause I thought I was dying. Worst experience of my life. I feel meh at the moment, but earlier my symptoms where extreme nausea, cold sweats, and for an hour anxiety. I just paced around my apartment, wanting to escape from my body. I know I cant sleep right now, but its been three days and Im scared the insomnia/lack of food has messed up my body badly.This is probably the biggest binger I have ever had, and I dont know how well/bad im doing. Can you guys tell me how bad I have it (bad obviously, but an opinion from someone who has had dt's, or near it), and any advice to speed my recovery. I know if I stuck it out I would be fine by tommorow, but I just couldnt stand the panic nausea and all the rest. I am 23, 5.7 feet tall, and about 150 pounds, likely less right now because of the lack of eating for over a week.

Thank you sincerely.

Yes, I've been where you are and it sounds like you are in serious trouble. Please get help soon because you can die from this. I don't mean to get all dramatic on you but that's just my experience.

Re: Advice needed urgently

Well im laying in bed right now. Feeling iffy, but not even a quarter as bad as today. I had a mickey, over like 10 hours, so im not drunk, just feeling alright. I cant really go to the hospital, my best friends mom works there, and she knows about my problem. I cant say I am anywhere close to siezures or anything that extreme. I just have to play it by ear untill the morning. Then im gonna go get some salad, some vitamin water, and maybe one more mickey for the day, a shot only when I get sweats or nausea or anything. I think I can do this and be okay by sunday. Do clinics offer any help by chance, cause there is one on my block. I just dont want any benzos or anything. They make me feel horrible.

Re: Advice needed urgently

Also I have had worse withdrawals, in terms of shakes and sweats, but this is the only time I have had extreme nausea, so Im not sure how to interperet it. If one is "worse" then the other I dont know if its part flu or not, as it is flu season where I live.

Okay well thanks for the help. If you have been where I have been you would know how good a sympethetic ear is during an ordeal. Not trying to be rude or creepy. Just wanted an ear while im busy having panic attacks.

Re: Advice needed urgently

Hello jack426 and welcome.

Did you make it to the hospital?

I know how it feels to be isolated and concerned about symptoms occurring.
If your friends mother works there or not,I suggest you go.

Being responsible for yourself is all that can be expected of you.

If people talk,let them and know that you are getting the help that is required to attain your goal.
Goal; a better quality of life.

Please keep us updated.......and take care of yourself.....one step at a time.

We can speak on the why's and preventive measures when you're feeling better.

Respectfully
Phoenix
