Made it through detox!
It wasn't intentional for me. I had no plan to quit drinking, however I had to quit drinking for a kidney stone removal and the meds that were requred for recovery. That was 4 days in.
Day 5 I went back to work, and had a disorientation spell at the end of the day. Had a friend drive me home that day. Took the next day off (6) to see doctor about high blood pressure and wham! That is when my detox started because I blacked out and the doctor recognized the sign.
Was in hospital 5 days, had siezure on day 7 or 8. I don't even know because I was out of it. One thing I remember is I came around a bit and found my hands and feet strapped down. Not a good memory.
I am at home now. 11 days alcohol free. Never plan to do that again. Have my first AA meeting tonight. I am free and plan to stay that way. I know it will be a long journey, but I am positive I can do it.
Just my little bit of info and an introduction to my story. BTW: I was drinking a pint a day for the last 3 years.
