Nice work Brit.
Have never felt normal!
Started feeling mentally better after a week or so. Physically 3/4 days. Sounds like you're over a hump!

I didn't drink daily...only weekly, but heavy binges. It's been 15 days since I last had a drink.
But, I have also noticed this brain fog. I've been really forgetful lately and I seem to get confused when doing just basic tasks. I've tried getting more sleep, but it doesn't make much of a difference. Is this what brain fog refers to? I do remember one of my worst stints of drinking when I got drunk for 5 nights straight while on vacation. A few days after stopping, I felt the same way to an even greater extent. I hope this dissipates soon since I need to be focused at work.
I am also craving carbs. I've always had a sweet tooth, but I can usually control myself. Lately, I've been binge eating junk food on a daily basis. I've just been trying to hit the gym harder to put those carbs to use.

I was a serious binge and nighttime drinker for about 8-9 years. For me, "normalness" returned in phases. Within a week, I had started to get over the serious withdrawal and suicidal feelings. Within two weeks, I felt like some of the grogginess and anxiety was starting to shore up. Within about 6-8 weeks, I started to recover many of the mental capacities that I had burned off from the drinking. I'm at 4-5 months now and feel like I did before I started drinking.
Good luck and stay strong!
