    It's impossible to know Stephen because no-one here knows your general health, your drinking history, whether you have struggled with withdrawals before etc etc.  And even, if we did, no-one here could confirm if you are likely to be safe or not.

    When you say detoxed 3 weeks ago, do you mean medically detoxed?  If so, it's probably best to speak to the physician who previously helped you.

    Failing that, remember that alcohol withdrawal can be very dangerous. It's nothing to mess with, and best to be safe than sorry. If you begin to struggle, please get some alcohol down you and then consult a physician at the earliest available opportunity.

    Probably withdrawal yes but not as bad as before. Great that you had the willpower to stop previously. Do not blaim yourself. You can do it. You are strong. Robin

    How are you going today? I'm on day two of going from 20 units a day to nothing and so far so good. I do have Ativan to take if I'm freaking out about anything and to help me sleep. Fingers crossed you don't have too many symptoms.

      Basically as soon as my husband told me he had taken the kids I couldn't have another sip of alcohol if I tried. I would have been stuffed if I went into withdrawals

      That has happened to someone else on here - it stopped them in their tracks.  That is rock bottom for you and the only way is up.

      Withdrawals terrify me - my doc gave me 2 weeks Diazepam but because I tapered slowly I have not had any.  Just there in case.

      Hi Stephen. Trying hard I see. Pls explain if you reached for the alcohol and also drank it? During detox? Or not? Anxiety the same? Pls explain. Do not give up. Making great efforts.
