Help !..... except Joanna....too tough for me. I cannot take that dimension of "help".  I am a very sick person.  This journey is killing me.  Back off, to anyone who feels less than VERY KINDLY.  I am a very sick person.  I try to be kindly to others in this HELL of a situation, with alcohol.  I cannot post what I really wanted to say.....because I cannot cope, again.

    Hi there...what sort of help do you need? I am sorry that you are feeling so wretched. What would you like best to happen? X

      Thank you for answering, Lorna.  I just want to be stronger than I am. I am so glad about help on this Forum. I hate my situation.  I would like to be able to be better.  Some aspects of help, on the Forum, are "too much" for me.  I then feel bad about that ! I just cannot take judgement....I know the truth.....I don't need more. That is how it feels. I am doing everything I can to get better.  Why should I nitpick my G.P., who has done the best for me...always, because I didn't get some "code"? I was prescribed Selincro, to help me...it is helping...but everything takes time.  I am impatient. That does not mean that my doctor is bad !

      I am also on Selincro Alonangel and I had a little breakdown because it wasn't working as fast as my prescribers said it would - they said I would see a change instantly. I haven't seen a change, but reading this forum I have realised as long as I am taking the tablets as prescribed (2 hours before I drink) I am doing the right thing and will see a difference eventually. So I am continuing with the drugs and persevering. The leaflet says I can expect to see a reduction in drinking within a month, I am only two months in, but again after reading the forum it may take longer, we just have to be persistent with taking the drug as advised.

      I suggest you do the same and keep in touch, there are so many people in the same boat, it's good to keep in contact with others in the same situation, so we can support each other and know we are not alone in this struggle.

    Sorry you're feeling so bad today. Google (using Google in particular):

    calm website

    The top result should be for Calm (dot) com. It's just relaxing scenery and sounds, kind of meditatve. Might help to give you a break...

    take it easy Alonangel. We are not judging you at all take each day gradually. Relaxing music is a good idea. Give yourself some treat when you do better and feel better. All the best to you!! Robin

      Thank you, Robin.  I am over the worst of it, now.  I hope your day goes well.  The world is a better place, with caring people.

      Thank you for caring. I need friends despite my "go it alone" way.

    I'm sorry you're feeling so wetched Alonangel.  You feel like what you are going through is killing you.  Well, to be blunt, alcohol can kill.  I know you want kindness.  Hopefully I'm being kind in saying be good to yourself, have lots of treats, do things you enjoy as much as you have the energy to, relax, go for walks, take long baths, watch movies, whatever distracts you from the desire for alcohol.  And believe in yourself.  You are a valuable human being, even if right now you don't feel that way.  Good luck

      Thank you h1954.  I am just sick of it all.  I try so hard...then fail.  I can't take another failure.  If this Selincro does not prove to be the answer, I do not know what can possibly be.

      There will be other options. I hear your frustration with what you've tried in the past, but I see in it your incredible determination. You have what it takes, that's for sure.

      Thank you,  ADEfree.  I don't know if I really can win this LONG, LONG BATTLE !  Who knows what it really takes.  Medication is one route...ok , several medications, several routes.  What if there is no victory? I question my determination...I am no "Joan of Arc" !  I don't hear voices (joke).

      You will have victory. That you are asking the question in the first place is itself a victory.

    Hey Alonanagel just letting you know people are here checking in on you to offer help and support for you.

    What help is it you feel you need? From what I've read you don't feel the advice Joanna has given you is the route for you? Are you looking for alternate ideas for recovery? Have you spoke to any medical professionals about your situation?

    Lots of love to you, hope this messag finds you well.

      Thank you for your concern, BK522.  I know Joanna has tried to help me and I thank her for that.  Unfortunately, my personality is damaged.  I have many imperfections. I want to be someone better, stronger and in control. My disappointment in myself is overpowering, at times. I do believe Joanna is correct...that is the problem.....I am the problem.

      I hope your day goes well.
