Reading all the past posts, especially the older ones, helped me through 2 home detox's this year, where I first tapered for a week as advised and then detoxed for a week. A lot of advice on this forum helped me with the alcohol withdrawal symptoms and also gave me some reassurance that the acute withdrawal symptoms would subside eventually after about 4-5 days and then improve week by week. It's been just over 4 weeks now off "The Sauce" AGAIN and my insomnia/broken sleep has practically gone thank God, which is usually the last thing for me to get back to normal. Still some mild anxiety infrequently but manageable, that's the main reason why I drink in the first place. The problem is when I start off with a few beers, with good intentions to keep it at that, it just escalates over time until I'm drinking 3-4 bottles of beer when I wake up to to ease the withdrawal. Then after a few weeks I'm up to 6-9 beers plus 1-2 bottles of red wine a day.
So I'm just wondering how are all the old members doing now?...especially MISSY? .... since I followed her ups and downs on her journey because her alcohol issues and drinking habits are/were similar to my own. The last I read was that she came out of a 9 day hospital detox and was back attending AA meetings again. She also mentioned about joining a different forum. It would be great to hear from any of the old members with any up dates and if ANYONE knows how MISSY is doing now. I guess no news is possibly good news. Anyway I hope everyone is doing well and still battling on. Hope to get some replies but if not thanks to everyone on here for their advice and sharing their own experiences over the years. It really helped just knowing that I was not the only one going through this during some really tough days this year. Best of luck to you all and take care.
