Withdrawl question

the first time I went cold turkey was over 8 moths ago. I went through horrible withdrawls. Besides the involuntary muscular movements, and swarming bed of sweat, I heard noises like bolts of lightning through my head, and had the occasional thought that the cats had multiplied.

I soon went back to drinking full time. October came, and it was time to do it again. I knew every inch of the wagon. I went sober early last week. I had 1 day of the really bad stuff, then it stopped. Like a miracle, after only lets say 36 hours, I had no withdrawl symptoms besides a minor and infrequent tremor. No convulsions. No hullucinations, not even sweating last night.

What was different?

The only factors I can think of are that I no longer take benzos or wellbutrin

Not being on benzos probably helped - your body wasn't having to detox from two substances simultaneously. That'd be my guess. Anyhow, if I were you, I'd consider myself very lucky, because another detox might not be so easy. Why risk it?

Not planning on it!


NO, just curious about it.

If it were me, I'd count my blessings, and I wouldn't count on it happening again!
