So for me it takes the drinking option off the table if i all of a sudden feel a strong impulse. It's just to kick start my sobriety. i want to reach 6 months AF which will be a significant milestone for me. I doubt i'll need it after 12 mths. I take small doses about twice a week. No noticeable side effects as long as i don't drink, and i won't on this stuff.

      Thanks for asking. Have a gr8 week.
      Great to hear that Guitarist. There's definitely More than one way to skin a cat. Best of luck. So do you still get cravings with anti abuse?

      Thanks Liz. No cravings actually. I had a little emotional turmoil recently, nothing serious, but i reckon if i wasn't on AB i might've resorted to my easy default coping strategy - boozing.

      No cravings is a combo of my mindset too. My mindset has been evolving in a positive way these past months, years. I'm thinking more and more along the lines of....life is damn short, so get out there g man while u have your health and make music, travel, be my best self. there is so much i want to do, and so much to offer humanity. This is my attitude now anyway.

      @Guitarista antabuse is not allowed anymore in Canada, or at least in Ontario unless you visit your pharmacist daily. It can be deadly so its rare here. Campral is designed for after you are AF to help you recover.

      If it worked for you congrats! NO doc will ever give me that (antabuse). Like I said campral is for recovery and not for AWS.

      That is my effort. If you look at the tray it has campral, naltrexone and B1 and B100 and C1000. As the photo shows I've tried everything.

      Hi Empy,

      I couldn't get AB here in Oz either, as it has apparently been recalled and taken off pharmacy shelves, although a doc prescribed it to me after a few questions. I had to order it online from india. The product looks kosher to me, and i take less than the prescribed/recommended dose i.e. about a quarter of a 250 mg tab twice a week. No noticeable side effects after 4 weeks. It may well be aspirin, but it's doing the job which is to make me stop, pause, think twice before drinking.

      Hope you're doing ok there buddy.

      Re: 90 days. ..Campral miracle

      Im up and down atm. My pup wakes up at 3 and for some reason wants to lick my head and ears so my sleep is all wacky.

      The new keyboard is hard to get used too so typos all over when I can type blind in the dark with perfect spelling on my other one. Until keys started to get stuck. I type a lot! This one is clean without ashes from cigarettes or spills as I have it pretty much under control. This keyboard was for my wife as I had hand built her a computer she never used, and this eventually became my kodi keyboard. Its a logitech wave K350, so its simple. So its curved, unlike my other other and messing with me for hand placement. My other is a bluetooth MX5000 which is old but was very expensive. I'll try to pair it again and see if keys keep getting stuck. Naw the keys are stuck from a decade of drink spills and cigarettes so it will take some more work. Might be a waste of time.

      Antabuse my dr won't even prescribe, because of the reasons you describe. He knows I will never get it, canadian boarder is crazy. Standards are Nalrexone and Campral (thats like 600-700 CAD a month) and if you are coming down diazepam. Diazepam is odd but yes you do not drink as much because you are already high as hell or asleep. Experimentation with a load of other meds. Never had antabuse so I cannot comment on it how is it? I'm extremely curious.

      Hope you are doing well. Be good to yourself.

      Congrats on 90 liz! (I highjacked another thread, darn)

      Thanks life change. I really do feel great and for the first time actually feel free. I don't feel condemned to the life i had once accepted as my curse. I know it God's hand that drags me out of bed and walks me through out my day to help me make wise choices. The Bible says we are to live a disciplined life before God and honor him with our lives. God enables us to do anything that's his will. We must align ourselves with his will though. This includes physical discipline....exercise regularly, feed out bodies right and develop spiritual discipline of prayer, to be made whole.
