      I just took my first dose of Bac; 5mg three times a day for five days than 10 mg three times a day. I will keep a log as well.
      My drinking pattern is as follows:
      1 beer and approx 0.5 pint of Rye per night - in a 2-3 hour span

      Weight - 155lbs
      height - 5"6
      age - 39

      Any suggestions or comments are greatly appreciated!

      Actually, the best way for your body would be to reduce your alcohol intake gradually (if you can do it). That way you can avoid or mitigate severe physical withdrawal symptoms.

      It's the same concept as getting off benzos (or any addictive medication). You never want to stop such a medication (including baclofen, which technically is not addictive) suddenly. It is dangerous to do so.

      Problem is, most alcoholics can't control their alcohol intake on their own after they start drinking. If bac allows you to assert some control yourself over your alcohol intake, you can set a schedule whereby you titrate off alcohol while you titrate up on baclofen.

      In this way, I avoided most withdrawal symptoms (which I am all too familiar with from having detoxed "cold turkey" numerous times).

      Good luck, and keep hoping...

      I guess I have decided to wait until I am up to 30mgs a day of Baclofen before trying to go AF which is in 4 days. Last night was a typical night for me....

      Apologies for being off-topic...

      Beatle, I've just recently realised that when I went AF, I wasn't experiencing withdrawal, but anxiety over having dumped my best friend!

      And hang in there! The off-switch does exist. I started not giving a damn about AL, but it was bloody difficult to believe that it was actually happening. I've joked with you about being a cynic, but truth be told, I'm one myself. I've since suspended my disbelief, even as I've titrated down to the point where I'm not experiencing total indifference.

      Day Three of Bac,
      My days are somewhat like usual, thinking about how much al i have and when i will start drinking although I usually get 12 beer every week and today I told my self I do not want that much and didnt by any. Bac makes the al hit me harder blck ou a lot faster. I will be glad when the bottle of Rye is gone, I may try to finish it tonight, just to get rid of it. wish me luck!

      Spot on Tips "the switch does exist" according to Dr A with the weight thing conducted on rats My switch should have been 230 mg a day My switch clicked in at 200mg I think even at 190 I had no thoughts or cravings for alcohol anxiety dissolved at 60 mg. I have experienced no side affects except insomina which I have always suffered...for those thinking of trying bac do it!!!...But it will only stop the craving as tips says you need to put a plan in to deal with the fact that you chose self destruction by alcohol ... keep trying this is NOT a useless endeavour
