    Im happy to say im down to 40mg a day,
    I also go to the pub every so often, 2 or 3 pints all night, I never drink at home now, don't see the point.

    Sweet success! (with baclofen)

    Hi Ne -what a great thread. For those that can not take Baclofen because of side effects, etc., what are their alternatives? It truly is a miracle that it worked for us and we had what it takes to stay with it until we finally felt indifferent. Is there hope outside the world of Baclofen for those that can not stay with baclofen?

    Your input is both needed and helpful.

    Ne,

    Thanks for reposting these 2 posts. I wasn't aware of either poster and was happy to read their experiences twice.

    spirit, I'm hopeful that those who have success with a different drug or a different way will post on a thread other than a baclofen success thread and you can read it there.

    Hi Kronk -I think it would be great news to post anywhere if another drug works as good or better to help with alcoholism. But hey, that is just my opinion. "Sweet Success" from the chains of alcoholism is a priceless gift -regardless of how one gets there, or at least that is my opinion.

    AA, Spirit. The alternative is f**king AA.

    I'd rather take the side effects.

    I think there are some people who could contribute to this thread now. It's been quiet for too long. And others, who have been sober for a while, can update if they want.



    More than once this thread has given people hope, determination or a big fat smile. (The last one is definitely true for me!)



    Hope it's a good day, folks.

    I was gonna write a really long-winded story of my entire bac journey. But it’s all on my thread for anyone who cares to read. The short version: before starting on bac, I was drinking a liter and a half of vodka a day, terribly physically addicted, very, very sick, and my daily life was miserable beyond words. I never in a million years thought I could break my two decades long addiction to booze, but I was willing to give bac a shot after reading all the research and all the positive reports here. Today, I am free of any and all cravings, or even thoughts, of drinking. Unlike what I had been told for years, I’m not doomed to a lifetime of AA attendance and working daily to safeguard my sobriety. I don’t have to safeguard anything. Sobriety is now the easiest part of my day. Of course, there’s life and all its attendant problems. These things must now be dealt with head on. I also have panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder which need both medical treatment and other forms of help (exercise, breathing exercises, etc.). But I don’t have to put any thought whatsoever into maintaining my sobriety. It simply maintains itself. This is a freedom I had never before imagined possible and am still unbelievably grateful for every day. So, thank you Dr. A, and thank you to all the wonderful people here who helped me along the way
