I have been drinking a fifth of vodka a day 6-7 days out of the week for the last 3 years or so. I already am diagnosed with severe panic and anxiety so I was basically self medicating but I also am prescribed 4 mg a day of clonazapam for panic which I know they use those benzos for with deal symptoms. I have a friend who is a nurse and suggested a taper program she created because I just can't go cold turkey because at about 12-24 hours with out a drink I get massive panic and sweats and minor trembles and its running my life and health and I wanna kick this in the butt. But she suggested I try that before I would enter an inpatient program. Any advice or any sort of help is greatly appreciated. I'm just scared of the major side effects like DT's or hallucinations and if I'm a candidate for that.
