    Hi kota. Have you made a good plan to stay alcohol free on your days off? Early on, I FILLED my days with things to do. Some of them chores, but also some fun stuff. Exercise has really helped me stay on the right path too. Endorphins lift my moods and I sure don't feel like drinking AL when I'm moving my body hard.

    Have you read the My Way Out Book? If not, you might want to give it a read. It recommends a specific regimen of supplements, hypnotherapy CD's, diet, exercise, and prescription meds. (I did everything except the prescription meds when I started out)

    These tools really do help. Have you checked out the Toolbox Thread here? Lots more good ideas in that thread.

    Most of us tried many times before we got it right. You can do it too.

    Dear doggy,
    I have read out tool box which made my mind to stop drinking al any way! Nice information shared. I am now reading Allen Carr,s book easyway......,and Dr. A,s book. I read out about mood swings ,some holly books,I know about meditation but all are behind the alcohol. Sorry..
    As you said exercise, supplements,meditation, hypnotherapy all matters to cure an addiction but they are really helpless at the moment in front of alcohol. Any idea that can stop craving at all? I am yet to read out MWO book.
    I can't imagine a day or night without a job or al!
    Many thanks Doggy for yours advice as ever.

    Seeking advice please!
    I am 39 yrs now ,drinking tested at the age of 17th.
    -casual drinker for the first last 10 years.
    -almost all nights for 2nd 12 years .
    -always hydrated after drink.
    Physical status.
    -no shaking,vomiting, active and looking healthy.
    -there is no abnormal changes if I am 2-3 days AF instead mood goes up. So could you share if there will be any problem in brain if I give up totally without medication?
    I do not want to see the doctor. I think I am risk free to give up totally as I don't have any abnormal changes for 72 hours.
    recent history of drink and my mood

    24 sept 5 uk units mood 5/10 ( 5 out of 10 )
    25 Sept AF Mood 6/10
    26 Sept AF mood 7.5/10
    27 Sept AF mood 8.5/10
    28 Sept morning AF mood 8/10
    28 Sept evening AL (8 uk ) units mood 6/10
    29 Sept morning AL ( 4 UK ) units mood 6/10
    29 Sept evening AF mood 7/10
    Recommended uk units is 3-4 each day.
    Seeking your advice on what could be an effect if I give up Al totally with no tapering down and without medicine?
    Thank you for your sharing.

    kota, didn't you say you are already going 2 - 3 days at a time AF when you are working? Maybe I misunderstood that. I think that if you are already able to go without alcohol for a few days, then you shouldn't have to worry about physical problems going AF for longer?

    What I did when I quit was to print out the information that is "stickied" on top of the "Need Help ASAP" section of the forum. There is a link to a web site that lists what symptoms to be concerned about when someone is detoxing. I reviewd that list with my husband, and he kept an eye on me for the first few days. (I was a daily drinker for years and years.)

    Of course if you are concerned, then it is best to involve your doctor.

    Kota,

    You're about the same age as me, and you have the same inability to stop drinking using will power alone.

    You can read books 'til you are blue in the face. They didn't help me at all.

    The only thing that has helped me, ever, is Baclofen.

    You don't need a doctor to get it, you just need to order it online and take it carefully and responsibly.

    Dear Doggy,

    I really can stay 2-3 days without any symptoms of withdrawl but become active,fogg in the mind out .no physical side effect.but the problem is to stay AF for long.Feeling lonlyness without job push back to strong craving. My curiosity is what's happen if I be free of alcohol without seeing a doctor?
    Seethpony,
    Does baclofen really stop craving and you can stay peace of mind?
    Thank you for your support.

    Kota, if you are interested in Baclofen or any of the anti-craving prescription medications(with or without a doctor's involvement) I would highly suggest reading the many threads about it in the section of the forum that lists all the medicines. There is lots of info with people's personal experiences and info about the pros and cons of your various options.

    I think it's safe to say there is nothing that is 100% easy. It's just a matter of finding the sobriety method that you can deal with to accomplish the desired result.

    Have you read all the threads about Baclofen and other meds?

    "Does baclofen really stop craving and you can stay peace of mind?"

    From my experience, I can say "Yes" and "Yes".
