I am your classic binger, 3-4 days,usually week days, totally off it, then Thursday night, Friday afternoon/evening and Saturday.....binge. Try to keep off it on Sunday as I have work on Monday. If I have no real need to stop I don't or more importantly I can't, I just keep going.
I have been a heavy drinker for over 40 years, but the lack of self control when I start drinking is getting a bit concerning. I am also suffering the effects more easily and for longer......age.
So I have purchased some Selincro, after pondering for many months, and stalking this forum.
I got the pills on Tuesday and although I have no intention of Drinking before Friday, I had read it was a good idea to take them prior to any planned drinking so as to hopefully get over the side effects before ruining your day out. Tonight will be my 3rd pill on 3rd non drinking day.
I have suffered from the nausea, insomnia, and a little lightheadedness, but not really too bad, like a normal Sunday to me....... but I am happy to persevere as I want things to change.
What I am really in need of now is some practical advice.
I will set a couple of scenarios.....
I plan to go out Thursday evening at 8pm, so I take a pill at 6pm
However because I only work half day Friday I will be down the pub at 1pm Friday so I need to take nother pill 11am. This is only 17 hours from the last one.......Is this a problem or am I being over cautious?
I am going on a business trip, will have a drink at the airport 12 noon so I take a pill at 10am, I only have a couple at the airport, then after a gap of about 30-60 minutes another one or two on the plane, then after maybe 2 hours I am in the hotel with a free evening then I start again.... I must admit having typed this out I think I can answer my own question.......if the pills work properly I might not want much or any more.......I was going to ask could the pill cope with this type of drinking.
I think I will stop now as my head is spinning, trying to fathom out what I am getting concerned about, it is all very new to me. But Im a gald I have taken the first step by posting something.
Thanks for any help.
