    I strongly suggest that you see your doctor. I don't know anything about you ... your health, your daily drinking habits, your age, m or f. All these issues can factor in the method you choose to quit drinking alcohol. Please see your physician before you quit drinking 'cold turkey'.

    I wish you the best of luck 🌻

      I can't believe you've been refused help because of mental health problems. It just seems so wrong. I don't know about detoxes but from what you've said you shouldn't be on your own. Hopefully someone on here will be able to help point you in the right direction. My heart goes out to you. Please look after yourself.

    Can you call a friend or neighbor to take you to a walk - in clinic? You need medical attention with someone who is trained in treating Alcoholics. To quit drinking abruptly can lead to seizures or other complications. Please try to call someone, a neighbor, your minister, just someone with whom you can share your concerns. Good luck and take care. 🌻

    Hi Jsvkie. I really feel for you. I was in that dark place several weeks ago. I went cold turkey but I had a friend with me 24/7 in case of a seizure. No way I could have gone through it on my own. Had panic attack like I've never had before( felt like a real heart attack), horrendous hallucinations, projectile vomiting for hours and DTs. The DTs and hallucinations, sweats lasted a week. You need help or someone with you. Call the crisis team from your local hospital, be truthful and they will help. Call Samaritans if you feel suicidal. You are not alone. Last October the crisis team were great and I spent 6 weeks in the mental health ward. Don't be scared phone them or a friend. I am now 11 weeks sober after being a 24/7 drinker so there is hope for you. I wish you all the luck in the world. A x

     You KNOW that the voice telling you to not drink is right.  The other voice will probably cause you great harm.

    It sounds to me like you need help from the professionals.  Please look for that help and keep posting here, you will get great support from people who have gone through, and are going through what you are.

    Take care.
