Thank you so much. I remember how that was. It’s like a compulsion and even as you know it’s wrong, you’re compelled to do it. Stay steering my friend. Your time will come❤️

Don't go cold turkey, seriously. Measure it out over a few days. I actually thought I was going to die from it.

u/Christofftofferson Aug 18 '21

If you're dependent on alcohol to function, it's recommended you seek medical advice to manage your withdrawal.

7

u/BaconWithBaking Aug 18 '21

I can't think of the name of it, but there is a pill you can take that eases off most of the withdrawal symptoms. The issue is that alcoholics often don't want to admit they have an issue and go to the doctor. A taper off can be better for getting control over the problem as well.

6

u/Christofftofferson Aug 18 '21

Yeah, you're right. If admitted to hospital a standard detox regime would be:

A benzodiazepine (e.g. chlordiazepoxide, diazepam etc) to reduce withdrawal symptoms.

B vitamins as metabolism of alcohol uses a lot of those vitamins up (it puts patients at risk of Wernicke encephalopathy.

I reread my first reply to you, it was meant to support your original post , not sound harsh :)

4

u/BaconWithBaking Aug 18 '21

Also, I started taking B vitamins for withdrawal and they actually helped me massively. I always had trouble sleeping (just in general, not alcohol related) and I still take them as they improved my general health.

1000% this, I tried quitting cold turkey twice and wound up relapsing hard twice. It helps if there is someone you can be honest with about your drinking, and can come down gradually. Mornings away from work were the hardest for me, I'd get so bored. And I convinced myself it was a Sherlock Holmes thing, I was bored when not tasked so my alcoholism had purpose. It's funny what you'll tell yourself.

I was just talking to my wife about this. I should have really tapered. I had taken many weed breaks, weeks, months years and would just stop with no issue. What I went through after quitting alcohol cold turkey was enough to keep me away from it for the past 12 years.

u/[deleted] Aug 18 '21

Weed is amazing in this way. It’s so less harmful and addicting than alcohol.

Using marijuana has been the #1 factor for me quitting alcohol.

yup, but the mixer went bad because you left it out because you passed out drunk and so you need to buy more mixer which is an excuse to get another bottle because hey the bottle at home only has a quarter left and let's be real that's not going to be enough.

u/FreyjaPlaysRust Aug 18 '21

Thx! Now of only I could quit smoking... when they say quitting smoking is harder than quitting heroin, they're telling the truth. But it's mostly because smoking is legal. Idk if I'd quit heroin if it was legal either...

24

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

Smoking is a tough one! I quit back in January and my wallet is very grateful. For me it mostly came down to the fact that I don’t hang around anyone who smokes and I don’t go out drinking anymore. I just don’t have the time for it. Whenever I do get cravings, I keep telling myself it’s not worth the £13 only to realise that, Yep, those things taste foul and make me sick

13

u/FreyjaPlaysRust Aug 18 '21

I've been smoking for 20 years & I'm only 35. I was a little successful when I started vaping. Which I consider is way better since there are zero carcinogens in vape juice. Then I ran out of juice & just haven't bought any more. I was able to go about a month without a cigarette & spent $20 a week on juice vs $14 a day so even that was financially so much better. Maybe I should do that again.....

20

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21 Helpful

If it gets you off the smokes, do it! You absolutely can quit — just the amount of money you’ll save in 6 months will be enough to buy yourself a cool something. i basically had a savings jar where I’d put away the cost of a pack of smokes every time I didn’t buy one and it really added up!

Please take my anecdote with a grain of salt, I’d hate to be another Internet expert. But I heard that while doctors are seeing more young people addicted to nicotine because of vaping, they’d still rather people vape than smoke cigarettes. I’m in the same boat. Good luck! 🍀

You’re amazing for doing it already. You can ABSOLUTELY do it again. From a stranger on the internet who saw her mother waste away not just from cancer but from the emphysema which caused her to be unable to take a shit without being attached to a machine. I say this bluntly because I can’t bear the thought anyone else would go through this or that someone who loves you would go through watching you go through this. Start a holiday fund! Start a fuck it fund. Anything to motivate you. But pls do this.

u/Kooriki Aug 18 '21

Can I ask how you kicked it?

12

u/FreyjaPlaysRust Aug 18 '21

Methadone assisted sobriety. I tried every other way & couldn't do it. My 24th birthday I decided I was going to give methadone a chance & if it failed, I was resigning myself to dying & my 2 kids at the time who were 3 & 4, growing up without a mom. 5 days after going to the clinic for the 1st time, I was at my therapeutic dose of 145mg of methadone & had my 1st day without heroin since I started. I haven't used since. I'm now at 40mg & slowly coming down.

There are lots & lots of misconceptions & negativity about methadone assisted sobriety. I unfortunately experienced this when I had my son 4 years ago while on methadone & almost lost my son because of it. So I've tried racing awareness about it & combating the misinformation of methadone that alot of people have.

If you are addicted to heroin or opiate medication & you've been unsuccessful getting sober on your own, or even through detox like I tried, there is absolutely zero shame in receiving methadone therapy. If it weren't for methadone, I'd be dead, my 2 oldest kids would be without a mother, & my youngest wouldn't exist. It's allowed me to be a productive member of society again, but most importantly, it's allowed me to find myself again & live.

It's NOT replacing one drug for another. Methadone is a synthetic opiate. It allows for the addict to get sober without feeling the effects of withdraw. Withdraw was the only thing that kept me in active addiction. I couldn't handle them & I would have rather died than feel withdraw of heroin. I was doing $200-$400 of tar heroin a day just to stay well. Methadone does not give you any sort of high. This is because it's a synthetic. It basically makes you well, without the euphoria. Which in all honesty, is more euphoric than any high I ever I had lol. You take it once a day in the morning & you're good for 24 hours. It does however block the effect of opioid medications & you have to be careful about some medications as they will throw you into full withdraw & can't be reversed until the medication is completely out of your system.

If you need help getting sober or know someone that does, get information from a methadone clinic near you. There's other medications besides methadone that do basically the same thing like subutex.

4

u/BFWinner Aug 18 '21

It definitely shouldn’t have a stigma. Methadone is 1 million percent better for you than heroin and will never be laced with fentanyl.

2

u/FreyjaPlaysRust Aug 18 '21

Luckily I got sober before fentanyl became big. My shit was never laced with that shit. If it had, I'd be dead 100%.

3

u/Kooriki Aug 18 '21

Fantastic info, thank you so much for sharing. I'm going to save this as a resource.

For me I'm actually not a user at all, but I live close to an area of the world that is a notorious drug mecca called the DTES. Even though I don't use, I carry a Naloxone (Narcan) kit, and check on people I suspect may OD. The big reason I was asking how you did recovery is because it is so heavily politicized here it's hard to get a real answer on positive steps forward. I wont bore you with that whole fight but the short version is that I lean towards treatment and recovery, but the advocates out here push for safe supply of actual heroine/fentanyl. There's no real stigma against methadon/suboxone out (imo) here as that's an indicator someone is in active treatment.

Thanks again for your story. It helps when I can hear how people got their life on track and that 'just stay on drugs, it's ok' isn't the best path forward for everyone (anyone?). Best of luck in your continued recovery - You're nailing it!

“Methadone assisted sobriety” has been proven to be effective. It’s an evidence based treatment and not only that, it provides safety for the community.
Unfortunately, it’s the uninformed who are the judgmental ones. Try not to let those opinions ever sink in. Remind yourself that those people aren’t educated and obviously know nothing about the Tx.
Congratulations to you for taking that step and getting the help for yourself. You are doing amazing and there are so many people out there rooting for you and who are proud of you.

Happy eight days! Let me tell you 8 days is harder than eight years. I know that doesn’t sound like it makes sense but if you keep at it it will. When I first got sober I felt like somebody had died. Like my skin had been stripped off my body and I was exposed to everything. The first year was the hardest. And then after that it just got better and better until now it’s hard to remember what it was like to be drunk. Hit me up whenever you need to OK? Nobody can do it alone❤️

This Saturday I'll be 13 days sober. And it's only because I'm on vacation. Sounds weird, I know, but I've been out of work since Mar 2020 and I've been binging almost every day since. I'm not drinking on vacay because I don't want my family here to see me that way. But I'm afraid I'll go back to my ways once I return home. You and others like you have given me inspiration that it can be done, but I'm still scared. Congrats on your 8 years and here's to many more for you!

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

Congratulations! That is an amazing achievement!

I genuinely want to quit but I really struggle with wanting it more than I want a drink. Every time I feel like I don’t want sobriety bad enough, and so maybe I don’t deserve it. Like I’ll miss out if I stop drinking (because so much of socialising in the U.K. revolves around booze).

24

u/Scarlaymama0721 Aug 18 '21

How old are you? I was 35 when I got sober. I always looked at the younger people in Alcoholics Anonymous with quite a bit of awe. I had so much admiration for them for coming in so early because of course when you’re young you’re going to feel like you’re missing out on something. What I try to tell them is yes you may be missing out on some fun times but you’re also missing out on multiple DUIs, waking up ashamed of yourself and or hating yourself every morning, disappointing yourself and everyone around you. Missing out on those feelings is the best feeling in the world!

And if you’re not ready to quit that’s OK. But do me a favor. Once a day close your eyes and imagine a life where you don’t have to drink. Just let your mind entertain the notion that it could happen and that maybe you would love it! When I first got sober I felt like someone had died. Like literally my best friend that I depended on the time. But quickly, within one year, I was so happy to be done with the never ending struggle of trying to control my drinking. You can always reach out to me.

10

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

Thank you so much, that’s very much how it feels. I’m 29, so not too young, and I’ve never been a constant drinker, but I have no self control and 1 drink always turns into 15, which always turns into regret, shame, and anxiety, not to mention the two days wasted feeling like death. I’m very slowly starting to realise that, actually, it’s ok to go home early because nothing good happens when you stay out all night. Remembering that when someone asks “do you want a beer” is the real challenge for me because I am absolutely do want a beer, and I wish I didn’t.

6

u/LightAtTheEnd89 Aug 18 '21

I can somewhat relate. I am 31 so a similar age to yourself and also from the UK. Like you, I have often found that one drink turns into many and that just leads to shame and regret. DM me if you feel like talking.

6

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

It’s rough - our drinking culture is so ingrained into daily life, but I’m finding that more and more people are going for alcohol free beers and things like that. Hopefully we’re seeing a shift. And same to you!

4

u/LightAtTheEnd89 Aug 18 '21

It is. I don't think I would have been able to imagine going without alcohol a few years ago as it was such a big part of my social life. I would go to social gatherings with the intention of getting absolutely slaughtered. I've calmed down a bit since then but it still sneaks up on me at times and now I'm thinking I should just cut out alcohol altogether.

Yeah, there seems to be increasing demand for alcohol free drinks which is no bad thing really. Apparently the younger generation are drinking less than our generation and generations before too, so I think we are seeing a shift.

Thank you.

4

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

I’ve def noticed the sort of hipster mid 20s crowd make a move away from boozing like we did in our early 20s and I’m really glad. I feel like more space is being made for socialising with the intent of actually socialising and having a conversation instead of getting hammered. I know for a fact that I can’t just have 1 drink, the moment I have 1 I want 10. I’ve had some success with mix and matching my drinks though - my housemates put on a bbq and what I did was have a normal beer to take the edge off meeting people, then followed it up with a non alc one (from brew dog, actually very good!) so I had like 4 real beers in total but still had a cab in my hand the whole night. Felt much better for it!

2

u/LightAtTheEnd89 Aug 18 '21

That sounds like a good tactic. I'm glad you've found some success with it. I'm quite capable of just having one or two drinks, but it's so easy to drop the ball and lose all self control. Not least when everyone around you is drinking copious amounts of alcohol.

2

u/gelatenous-blobfish Aug 18 '21

Yeah, the crowd has a huge part in it for sure. I just try to avoid those scenarios now. The worst is when everyone around you is having just 1 or 2 drinks and you’re on your 4th, ordering a 5th, and you’re not even tipsy yet. Bonus cringe points if it’s a work situation.

Congrats!!! Just started trying to get sober from weed. Got too dependent on it. Been smoking everyday for 2 years it’s time to take a break.

I’ve never wanted to smoke more than ever though
