      Withdrawals worse asleep or awake?

      p.s I forgot the part with the supplements. I think I am also the Supplement Queen here (and I won't willingly step down from that throne)... go check the Holistic Healing forum about that. There is an incredible amount of information there.

      Heavy-duty supplementation before, during, and after withdrawal are essential. And if you prepare with a good diet and lots of relevant supplements, the withdrawal will be much easier. Believe me, I talk from experience.

      I find for me, the anxiety of withdrawals are worst when I'm asleep or awake.

      Haha! You asked.

      Things actually have gone smoothly for me at work. It's more distracting. I've had enough bed-laying pity parties to suit me for the rest of my life. I still cycle sometimes and slip, and then have to detox. But my cycles are getting longer, and the detox is easier when I catch the slip quick and get back on the right road.

      Thanks Sheri-- I also use "Seven Weeks to Sobriety" as my key reference when it comes to supplements.

      I had never seen that article before-- very thorough and helpful.

      Withdrawals worse asleep or awake?

      I think trying to get your body back into a decent eating and sleeping routine is the most important. Today I've had the jitters so going out for a walk was not on the cards. What I have done is eaten 3 meals, drank lots of water and am off to bed shortly. I get muscular aches and pains too, you have to remember alcohol is an anaesthetic so taking away you painkiller means your nervous system is going to go crazy.

      I don't advocate shovelling loads of pills and suppliments down one's neck - but do agree at first some people do require that extra help, whilst they eliminate the alcohol and get back into following a proper, healthy diet.

      Regards withdrawl medications - librium/temazepam/valium is highly recommended but you must be clear you cannot drink on any of these sedatives. To do so can depress your breathing which is serious, or cause you to pass out dangerously. This happened to a guy living in a town nearby - he was prescribed sedatives and drank on them. Newspaper reported he'd a drink problem so don't know if the sedatives were to help him detox. Anyway, he fell down the stairs and broke his neck. That's aside from any risk of developing an addiction to the sedatives.

      I'm putting up with my shakiness right now since I know if I drink even the bottle of wine I have remaining, then I may wipe out another 2 days, and that's if I'm lucky. Has to be all or nothing.
