Hi Karl, I don't think it is a good idea to take valium and alcohol. They both depress the central nervous system and can be very dangerous.

Also alcohol wrecks sleep patterns.

Did you manage to make an appointlment with your doctor? You said you were going to try.
Hope you are OK mate

Karl,

Take a look. Good information. I would consult your physician. The combination of the two can lead to death.

Valium and Alcohol

hey, well i did postpone it. and well now my mother(god bless her) is making the first step tomorrow, but calling and making me the appointment.

Im so friggin scared about going, i have wrote down a few things, i just think its going to be hard to tell my entire life story of being dependant on some form of drug(crutch).

one day i may 'man up' and write my story here. but its kinda hard to remember it all.
