Yeah I have the same question. I've been sober since last week end. I'm in "home detox" with ativans. It helps a lot for the withdrawl symptoms. Yesterday I went downtown with a friend and I was feeling the symptoms a lot. I had 2 beers but I stopped there even if he continued. I continued with coke. It helped me with the symptoms tho. I've read that beside benzos, a LITTLE alcohol, like tapering down, can help. Do I have to reset the counter ?

I do not feel "bad" but I like to count the days off the booze.

For me, taking alcohol is getting drunk as hell on a two four.

The fact that you were so concerned about it shows me that you care that much about your sobriety!!
You are now better able to indentify how the obsession affects your spirit and that is never a bad thing.
i hope that you will use this experience to benefit your recovery & keep moving forward one day a time!
