      Hello Songbird and Welcome
      I am so glad that you are here. I agree with what everyone else said. I have detoxed twice from AL and benzodiazepines at the same time. It was xanax, klonopin, but the same drug class as valium. You must be medically monitored to detox from these things. Please go to the detox and then come back here and let us know how you are doing. You Can Do This!!!

      Hi songbird,
      I know we all feel alone in our darkest hours.........so many of us have been where you are right now, but you are never alone when you have MWO to come to. I know that we`re not there for you in person, but please believe that we are right by your side and ready and willing to help you in any way we can.

      I would never have got through my first AF night, had it not been for the kind people here who stayed online with me that night throughout the most difficult period of my suffering. Ask for any help you need here.........we are all in this together. :l

      Darling x

      songbird, I flew my brother across the country after he od'd on crack, pain meds and AL. He had no job, no insurance and a warrant for his arrest. The best I could do for him was to get him into a 3-5 day detox. Today he is 4 years alcohol and narcotic free. It's such a long story I could never put it into a thread. GO INTO THE DETOX. When you take one step things happen, sometimes things you could never imagine or hope for or pray for or guess or bet on. But they do. Right now, don't worry about being a "taker" instead of a "giver". There's no such thing. You are giving by sharing your story. How many others are going to read your post and get help from you. How many people are you helping right now? I'm crying my heart out because I remember my brother getting off the plane. He looked like the walking dead. I thought he was going to die. Now he told me he's the happiest he's ever been in his life. He's 45. I don't know you but I love you. :l

      I'm back from detox!

      Just want to let all of you caring, kind, wonderful people that I finally got into a detox facility and was in for 6 days...Today is day 10 for me! It was quite the experience. I don't think I could have done it this time alone. I say this time because I've been through this many times...6-7. It was the WORSE of all times...I am 45 yrs old and this is really taken a toll on my body.

      The first few days and nights they kept me comfortable on Librium and other things...I was doped up but safe, and I kind of miss that feeling right now....BUT...I don't want to drink...If I do it will be all over again and I felt like death after the meds were taken away...I was no longer at risk of seizure...I still feel like crap.

      This is going to be a tough road. I have gone to a couple of aAA and NA meetings but they are something I could never get into. I will go if I feel like drinking though.

      Although most of the people (of all ages) were in there for narcotics....there was the common denominator of starting with a drink. Some stopped and found that other drugs were more satisfying and stopped drinking. I am one of the ones that just loves it. Unfortunately, I abused it for so long that I can't handle it anymore.

      I am still so foggy and forget things all the time. I hope my brain clears soon because this is the feeling I get right before I went for a drink! I won't.

      Just want to let you know I am OK and I will be tuning in.

      thanx again, Songbird:h

      This is great, Songbird! You did the right thing. I am sure you are aware that there a whole bunch of other "right things" that you will need to do to keep from sliding back into that awful place... one of them will probably be to stay close to MWO, keep posting about how and what you are doing!

      best wishes,

      That's great to hear Songbird! Sounds like you have suffered a lot.

      I know what you mean about not getting into AA meetings, though I found that the people themselves can be great. Maybe there is another type of group support you could get? One organization that has group meetings is called Women For Sobriety. If you google them you can email them and ask if there is a group in your area.

      You could also ask the rehab if they know of alternative groups to AA. I think other options are springing up in some areas.

      SMART recovery also has group meetings.

      Good luck and you can always post on here of course with your progress.

      hello songbird
      Glad to know you are ok and on day 10! That is a great kickstart to the program.
      Keep posting especially if you are struggling. Have you any kudzu or L-glut to help you with cravings or anything like that?

      Songbird, you're doing the right thing. The detox will be a new start...hopefully the staff there can help you with the next step. In the Midwest US, the counties ( Family Services, Social Services) offer help in getting CD evaluation and treatment...they can help if people don't have insurance.

      Hope and committment are everthing.......Gaia

      Welcome back, Songbird! 10 days is incredible! I was so worried about you, thanks so much for checking back in! :l

      Nancy has some great suggestions for alternatives and you might want to try AA just at the beginning. My brother tried it, didn't like it then tried NA and found that to be a bit more to his liking. He's now been going for over 4 years, successfully. He says he takes what he needs from the meetings and ignores what he doesn't believe in.

      I'm so proud of you
