Hi I am one of these people who always has an excuse I drink because I am happy because I am sad because I am bored because I am lonely because I want to be social etc etc
Since Christmas I have taken time off work due to excessive drinking my face is bloated and red and my sleep is shocking. I don't remember the last day I didn't drink at least some wine. The weekend past was ridiculous Sunday night I lay in bed sweat pouring off me unable to sleep at all with mind racing. And that was after a ridiculous amount on Saturday followed by wine on Sunday to make me feel better.
Anyway yesterday I had half a 11% bottle of wine and two vodkas and slept fine (or at least seemed to) but I am sitting here thinking enough is enough I actually want to stop and I want to be the driver at social occasions. My husband is working away tonight so I am on my own. Now I know it is dangerous to stop cold turkey but my last drink was 9 pm last night and I have no signs of withdrawal no sore head no nausea no shaky hands my appetite is fine had boiled egg and toast for breakfast home made soup for lunch and got fish for tea.
I guess my questions are would I be stupid to make last night my last drink
If you are going to get seizures or DT do you have warning signs eg other withdrawal symptoms before it reaches serious eg would I get shakes feel sick etc
I have never detoxed before but I feel ready! I have taken my pulse and it is 68 bpm
Any advice great fully received ta
