First week using Selincro.
Hi All, wanted to update with my experience so far. Im not sure if its me, the selincro, the effect, the side effects or a combination of it all but i feel like my mind is being blown. Some of it in a good way. Most of it infact but its fast paced and a bit unnerving. I had not drunk for five days before using sel. for the first time last friday. from the advise on this site i took it early afternoon instead of an hour before and went on my merry way. it actually didnt stop me drinking any more than i usually would but something was very different. The next day i felt like hell. a mixture of hangover and side effects i suppose BUT whereas normally i get myself into a cycle of drinking every day even with a horrible hangover. im always just holding out till later or savouring the night befores drinking memory and holding out until i can feel like it again. I guess thats the reward aspect/craving which i had never realised what it was. I had no desire to drink at all again the following day despite giving myself full permission to do so. i tested myself to almost making myself have a drink but i just didnt want to and didnt drink again all weekend which is most unusual. it usually takes me days or weeks to break the cycle again. usually because i feel so ill i cant function. So on Tuesday i planned to drink on a casual basis. my friend and i were planning an evening in the garden chatting and kids playing on swingball. not a big night obvs with kids but a few glasses. i had forgotten to take tablets to work so knew i would get home have to take one and wait and hour. which i did. my favourite chenin blanc did not go down well. i didnt like the taste and i didnt like what it did. i forced it though but it was so strange because 1. i didnt drink anything like the normal amount - a bit less than a bottle over 3 hours instead of my normal two bottles in two hours ish. 2. i knew i was a bit drunk and could almost observe that but didnt like it at all. Yesterday i felt like hell. had someside effects from the Sel. stretching like a cat, nausea which passed and general feeling of being spaced but some of that may have been hangover? The hangover itself again differed. its like making yourself ill for no reason - no reward?? usually a hangover is crap but ok until the next one but this felt like whats the point in this? making myself feel deliberately ill for nothing. the point is and sorry for the long post but i m utterly perplexed as this feels massive to me - i dont want to drink. i dont like it. i dont like the taste, i dont like how it makes me feel, there is no fun in it and just to make myself feel more crap the next day. This is only after two tablets over 5 days!!! Is this what happens? Is this normal? Im going out to eat with a friend this evening who's a big drinker and we have drunk a lot together. I dont want to drink. Im not going to drink. I have no desire to drink whatsoever!!! As a last shot I wouldnt ever take a tablet that late in the day again def take earlier/lunch time/early afternoon. Would love to hear what you think of my experience and if this is normal and how it compares to others.
