    Sue, I beleive over the last few months that you have stayed away from medications. Maybe it's time to get on the Naltrexone  (or Nalmefene)  program - it has helped me.

    I am also on Campral which has helped with my stability from stumbling around. 

    Hope this has helped.

      Nalmefene is not available here (that I know of). Maybe Paul has a better idea of world health issues and availability.

      NO...and as Paul has mentioned several times on this forum, If you are 100% sure you won't have a slip, go ahead with Antibuse but if you do have a drink it could be life threatening.

      You CAN drink with Naltrexone - it just reduces the cravings.

      no naltrexone  works on receptors in the brain that block the effects of alchohol,whereas antibuse or disulfiram punishes you for having a drink by essentially poisoning you with certain bad effects

    Hi Sue08,

    I know how you feel!  it takes a lot to get away from drinking and oh so easy to fall back into it again.  I am in the middle of the same thing, but i do try to think of the things that I was doing and what made me feel better.  it is a struggle but I am determined that [u]I WILL BEAT IT![/u] I hope you can get through this and I would like to think that I could help.  If you need to talk just e-mail me.  all the best (Y)
