      Bacman- Congratulations on your AF success with BAC. I just wish I had read the Meds threads about 4 years before I actually did...in 2010. I was so ignorant because I thought you could only buy BAC with a doc's prescription, and at the time, I did not want to admit to my doctor I had a drinking problem, and MOST importantly, I did not want it on my medical record because I did not want my insurance rates to go up. So happy for you!!

      I agree - Everyone has different goals, I respect those who want their goal to be moderation but it is not what I want or what I want at the end of my journey, which lets face it will be with me for the rest of my life

      Hi Rusty

      Thank you for your reply - Ne speaks very highly of you so I totally welcome your comments

      I did "lurk" for a while trying to decide if Baclofen was right for me - This side of the pond Baclofen is unheard of for treating alcohol symptoms-alcohol-depression or Anxiety - We dont need insurance due to our wonderful (or not in some cases) NHS service that "asks no questions".... - I have discussed this with my GP and she (note she) said that if it is working she might consider prescribing a dosage, which was fan-bleeding-tastic news - Why we have to lag behind other countries is beyond me

      To me the meds threads are a bit of a mess - There is some priceless stuff, mixed in with ramblings and totally off topic rubbish, which somewhat disolves the quality information contained there-in

      Anyway, thanks again Rusty

      Regards


      Bacman

      Baclofenman - I have SF on ignore. It makes life a lot easier on this forum. He is a past master of trolling and though it is hard to ignore his bile and passive (and not so passive) aggression, it is worth the effort. He was one of my biggest hurdles here when I was trying the baclofen route, nasty excuse for a human being that he is. Anything you post in response to his poison just fuels him.

      Best wishes - and hoping you like the graphics! : )

      I am aware that a lot of you have "him" on ignore - I on the other hand look at it from a different perspective - By ignoring him, I feel he has won - Yes on the one hand you dont have to listen (read) his bollox but then the true aim of the troll will have been acomplished IMO - In fairness I enjoy conflict, especially with an idiot so it does bring a "side show" to the rather quiet meds section

      It is such a shame that he is so "Bi-polar", especially when inebriated because a very small minority of his post are a very good read <sigh>

      Graphics are good old bean - Just waiting for the go ahead from die Führerin

      Best Wishes

      Bacman-thank you for your kind words about me. NE has always been one of my favorite people here and she has always given so unselfishly of her time to help others. It sounds like your doctors in the UK are kind of like they are here...when it comes to addiction, most GPs only know TWO things, and TWO things ONLY: AA and Rehab. That's what my doctor said I should do and I gave her an immediate thumbs down. She had never heard of Baclofen for AL. She wasn't even familiar with NAL, which is called Revia in the medical community here in the States. Funny how we patients educate our doctors, no? ;-)

      That is the biggest problem. It's not the old timers or the people that have already reached some success with baclofen that he threatens (though I receive many, many emails from old timers and newbies alike about his interference keeping them from participating). It is the fact that when lurkers look here, they see the drama. I actually had a donation for the new forum from someone who hadn't even participated yet because of it! You'd think, that since his purported purpose is to keep alcoholics from dying, he'd stop and let us get the support we need.

      Thank all that matters for reason and tolerance. "No going bac man". You're awesome.

      Keep yourself busy, and enjoy the folks' place this weekend.
      Thanks, Stuck. I'm glad you understand about the therapist. Can you still see your old therapist?

      I'm in Baltimore now. I am going shopping today, I think. And tomorrow I'm going to go to the American Visionary Art Museum. It's full of art by crazy people, including many who have our particular brain dysfunction. (The museum shows work that is by people who are "without formal training". It's full of art by people like us, as well as people with other more dramatic brain chemistry...dysfunctions.) And maybe I'll see if there's anyone around to have coffee with. Baltimore's our hometown, so there's always someone around I haven't seen in ages. I can't decide how social I want to be.

      Thanks for stopping by. Sorry that Spirit was here spreading his mud all over. Glad you posted anyway.
      (Forgot the book you sent at home, dammit!)

      Don't play the blame game! It takes what it takes! ha! As if I can deal with that right now. I swear, it is SO DAMN HARD to wait 5 days to go up by a mere 20mg. <sigh>

      Thanks everyone for stopping by. Much love to you all.

      Ah, yes...I see the drama is still abundant and active. Like many, it's one of the reasons I haven't been participating. NE, will this kind of crap be prohibited on the new forum?

      I would encourage any of you who are impatient with the bac titration to try and get a Rx for Nal! For me, it worked on the first day! I remember not being able to finish one beer!

      I stayed at 40 mgs yesterday and was fine. Had 4 beers during the superbowl and over a period of 6 hours. And, I had some of the best pork ribs I've ever eaten!!!

      Bacman, Rusty, NE, thanks for your encouragement and advise. I don't plan on going above 80 mg/day with the bac. My goal is to moderate my consumption. And, I remember my days in the 200-300mg/day; I was a zombie! I can't do any work at those levels. NE, I can understand why you want to go back up to that HDB, but I couldn't do it again. Try the Nal with a lower dose of bac.

      Bacman, good for you on being AF! Keep up the good work!
      All the best to you all.
