Can anyone tell me their experiences after a one week supervised home detox?

I havent been alcohol free for many years.  The only time I had a few days wine free was when I was in hospital a couple of years ago.  As soon as I got home - straight to the wine bottle!  Its very scary for me looking into the future - no more wine - agghhhhhh.

    Hi Pauline I have had two supervised home detoxes the first one I had I managed to abstain for 9 months when I was detoxing I also was given a drug called campral this is to help with the cravings after detox it helped me but it was the sheer determination that I had at the time that got me to the 9 month point but relasspsed after that point and I tried a second detox about a year later but that did not last more then a few wks my home situation at the time was not good now I am waiting to go in for a inpatient detox third time lucky ☺ I hope I wish you all the look in the world Pauline keep us posted

      Hi deirdre - thank you so much for your all your best wishes and I take those big hugs with open arms.  Unfortunately, I have had to cancel my home detox as I have to go  into hospital for an unexpected urgent medical procedure which I may say is not connected to the demon drink!  If all goes well then I have rebooked the detox.  Wish me luck!  xxxx
