Nice job karate, I think your life would still be tough even with the booze, tougher actually.
Glad you are keeping it straight!

Karate a good friend with much wisdom told me to make as much headway when you can so your better prepared when a curveball comes. You have had a few curveballs lately that is for sure. But why not use this time that your not thinkin about a drink to form a solid recovery program? This way if you get more crap thrown your way you can duck and move vs. getting clocked like last week?

Glad you haven't drank Karate. You've had thoughts like this before, many of us have. I think it's important to remember that there is no magic formula or thought that suddenly removes our addiction. We need to be vigilant every day. Also remember you are on the higher dose meds now too....that could be contributing as well. Be strong and don't be afraid to accept help when you need it. Have you been to your regular home group?

Karate, you are going through a tough time and I will keep you in my prayer. I am glad you got right back to being sober. I am proud of you.

The specifics don't really matter, I'm just suggesting you keep a plan in place. You've been seeing your doc, that is great. How is your homegroup doing?

Zoloft and Alcohol – Safety Medical

Karate, years ago I took zoloft for many months. I stopped drinking during that period - the doctor told me not drink or else. I listened. Zoloft got in the way of my drinking so I got off it so I could drink again. I quit drinking for a year. Felt pretty good too after that. For some reason I figured I would start drinking again.

We react differently to medications. But overall, drinking and zoloft do not mix well.

I am glad you are doing better. Most of us don't want a drink, until we do. We have to be ready for what we will do when we DO want a drink. Enjoy the times we don't, but remember they might not last forever.

glad the zoloft is helping

Karate,
hasn't a similar odd thing happened over and over?

seems like a repeating pattern....feel like adding stuff so you have a better chance at changing the pattern?
