Started TSM

Posted , 13 users are following.

I've tried to get my Husband to post on this forum but he won't. So I will post the latest in my Husband's interesting (turbulent, fraught at times) journey.

After trying the Campral, which, worked for about 3 months. He unfortunately, picked up again. I believe this was due to all the stress of starting a new job.

So now he has started his TSM journey with Selincro and has even contacted and spoke with Joanna. Yay!

So, I am hoping, praying that this will work. I know it will take some time. It wont be easy, but he is commited to it.

Wishing everyone on this site health and happiness as always

      Its hard for both of you to say the least. Alcohol is a poison that effects not only that person drinking it but all those around them. It sounds though that even with this in mind that you love him very much. Baby steps as they say, he seems to want to make a change, he will be scared etc And he sounds like he knows he has an issue with it. Please bear in mind that different things work for different people. Some it seems can give up through will power alone, although this appears to be rare. Trust me i know this, i tried. Meds. talkiing therapy, books, this forum, all will help in some way but i think the person really has to want to do it themselves too. Maybe the right form of meds is really what it comes down to with him. Good that he has been on the forum too, big time.

      I have not tried meds yet although i am in the process of trying to see what is best for me. I do see addictions councillor etc. Its not easy i honestly believe it comes from the person themselves in the end. I can be done so please dont give up either of you xxx

    I have been trying to get my husband to post on this site too, so far with no success. He seems interested and even let me give his email address to someone from this site who has been where he is now. He just doesn't seem to be ready yet to commit to getting sober and taking his life back. I wish you and your husband well and am so happy for you that he is committed to his recovery from a devastating disease.
