I Am An Alcoholic Trying to Get Sober Again

I am struggling and I'm not sure what to do.  I have been sober before, 18 months, 4 months, 30 days, etc. etc.  I have been drinking steadily again since May.  My days start early with Tequilla around 7am.  I am trying to put the bottle down and go to AA but the withdrawls are so bad.  Does anyone have a suggestion on how to get through the withdrawals?  Honey, orange juice?  Any suggestion would help.

I just found this website and figured after the crazy out of control drunk past 3 days, hours ago I think might try to quit..All the money i could save, be healthier, so many positive things to stop.My father was so bad in Florida he was drinking mouth wash, now he hasn't had a drink in years.My brother i hope just got his wake up call and when he gets back out he can do better.I guess it's in my genes please help with any ideas???I'm leaving soon just to get away; even though problems can fallow, also a saying that you become who you hang out with, and I think i got a some good ones just not with me...

Good for you sexycagirl45. Hope those good feelings stay with you. Keep with the meetings and keep your phone numbers close at hand. And if you feel like reaching for something, reach for your Big Book. I've worn out three of them over the last 11 years. Remember the sayings - you know: A day At A Time; Your worst day sober is better than your best day drunk, etc. They are all soooo true.

I am doing great and don't need detox. I don't know if it's because I prayed so hard last night or not, but I have no withdrawl symptoms today. Back to my AA Woman's group tonight at 6. I feel great.

go to detox !! pm if you need support !! God bless you!

This probably won't be good advice, but I thought I'd mention it anyways.. Well, whenever my organs start aching, which tells me that the heavy drinking is really starting to do some permanent damage, I smoke weed for a while instead of drinking. Makes it easy to go to sleep, and turns the brain from negative thoughts.

I am actually feeling a little better now. I haven't had a drink in 9 hours. I've been drinking a lot of water today. I am going to go to AA at 6pm tonight.

i don't think any of those things will work for you hun, please get help..... substance misuse teams are everywhere.... they can help!
