I have been off the drink now for 6 days after reading this cover to cover over a few days and doing the cd. 6 days might not sound like that much but i was necking loads raw vodka for quite a while to say the least. Starting from the morning...Even though there was a few days here and there that i stopped. Last week i had major withdrawl symptoms and felt so low i cant describe it.
I will say that reading the book quickly was good as it meant i didnt forget parts of it if that makes sence.
To be fair i read a bit of the book at anytime a thought creeps into my head that it might be ok to go to the off licence... though there hasnt been many. Such a difference i swear honestly. Only one real, real one and that was last night but didnt do it. It passed after a few hours.
The hypnosis cd is very good too, i have listened to it loads at night when i cant sleep. More or less every night. So maybe the key to the book working is to keep it as a little companion and do the cd often. It seems to work for me.
Just want to say for those who havent tried it, for the sake of a few pounds its worth a shot.
. Some of you will know from my other discussions that over the last 4 weeks i have been in an extremly bad place, pure hell to be honest. I was clearing out the other day and managed to throw down the sink a hidden bottle of vodka that i found. Which you might have worked out from the things i have said before is pretty good.
Make a change from me throwing up down the sink!
which i have done a lot of, trust me.
Not trying to preach or anything but you never know it may work for you too if you havent tried it. Its so strange i cant explain how i feel differently about alcohol itself after reading it. Its always going to be a work in progress but such a difference!
I can honestly say I am off drink for good, my life fell apart because of it and i couldnt go through that pain again, its only now that i have managed to pick myself up a bit. Dont get me wrong i have massive amounts of work to do so my life is back together but its better than it has been.
Anyway its worth a read, you never know. Really just posted this not to moan about myself but to help anyone who might want to give it a try. It will benefit those most who truly just want to stop altogether and not cut down, just wanted to add that part.
I will also say that i could never in a million years have got through this time in my life without this forum, so thank you so much for all your help. I have no one in the house with me right now and have been on my own with no one to talk to for weeks, your words mean everything. I will always come on it everyday from now on in as it has helped so much and always will spur me on. Its this forum and the book that has got me here after almost 4 weeks of lying on the sofa with curtains closed,panic attacks and not eating etc to now having been out for over 7 whole hours. Honestly at times i was so scared to leave the house.
The curtains are now open and i even started clearing out my house. So again thank you so so much xxxx
