Just need some more advice please – My doctor sent me to an alcohol withdrawal centre last week and I was assessed. I urgently want to stop drinking and they told me to have 2 bottles of wine a day until I got to see a counsellor who could do me a safe plan to cut down. The withdrawal centre hasn’t even got back to me I keep ringing and they promise they would ring back on Friday and again yesterday and no contact at all.
I phoned my Doctor today and he has prescribed me Librium and said its not ideal but I can reduce my alcohol intake dramatically to half a bottle of wine whilst taking Librium and wean off very slowly. But when I was at the centre last week they told me you can’t drink at all whilst taking Librium?
I am so so confused now – I really want to stop drinking as it makes me suicidal but I am absolutely terrified of the convulsions – I live alone and am really really scared of something bad happening to me.
How likely is it to have convulsions on the Librium without any alcohol – I don’t want to drink again mentally – I have hated every drop and the way it makes me feel since I told my Doctor everything last week and am forcing it down – 2/3 bottles of wine a night because I am so scared of the DTs.
I have been drinking 2/3 bottles of 10% wine daily for about 6 months x
Please help me – I just don’t know what to do?
