Good luck. DH did that almost 8 years ago and hasn't had a drop since.

Again, I recomend things such as Flavored carbonated spring waters and tonic waters with lime... it covers the flavor aspect of missing booze. The rest is kinda up to you but I hope you get things under control, I remember your posts on vodka excess.

Thanks.......Its tonic water with 10 mg of valium tonight. The valium is to prevent seizures and help with the shakes. I also am taking a antispychotic to prevent hallucinations and paranoia.

I hate AA meetings. Been there done that and the very mention of "god" gives me the chills. Ughhhhh! Funny thing is I hate to be around drunks. They sound like broken records.

To assume that one can build bonds with other people based on weaknesses is kind of troubling, so I understand what you mean. Still some kind of help would be good, especially since I dont think there are that many experts here. Also I dont identify with group religion that well... mostly because I raised myself catholic (both my parents are athiests) so I tend to see spiritual matters as too solem to share with groups.

Btw more things I suggest:

1) The bottomless water jug. I keep a jug of room temperature water that I drink from constantly and refil at least once a day when Im at home. It helps clean me out from my daily vices (which revolve more around sodium and sugar than alcohol) and it keeps you nicely hidrated and refreshed. It also helps you avoid picking up stuff such as sodas to replace the drinks.

2) Working out: first figure out a way to make it not boring (mine is watching dvd's while I work out) and the rest is natural. Sweating helps you clean out your system while the natural endorphins well... they take certain edge off.
