      I’m glad you are back on the mend, taking care of yourself the best way you know. Forgiveness is given with the asking.
      My life is better without alcohol, since 9/1/12. My sobriety tool is the list at permalink 236 on the toolbox thread under monthly abstinance.

      Hope that you are doing better.....withdrawal is very real and painful. I know because I've been there. Like yourself, I was a big fan of vodka: loved to mix it with my wine for a quicker buzz. I finally became so ill that I finally admitted to my doc that I was an alcoholic. She wanted me to check into a detox program, but I insisted on doing it at home. I used the taper method, which I guess was OK, but honestly, I was so nauseous and spaced out that I didn't want anything to eat or drink. I pretty much sat in a recliner for the better part of a week, sick, shaking, scared and unable to care about anything for nearly a week. My hubby stayed home to keep and eye on me, which I am grateful for. My doc had put me on Trazadone (I was already on antidepressants) to help with the withdrawal and to allow me to sleep. I am still taking it for the sleeping issues, and it does seem to help.

      I would be wary of the pharm stuff, not only for your safety but we tend to trade one addiction for another, it's the nature of the beast.

      Good luck with it all, and keep us posted on how you are doing!
