Anxiety is my worse enemy!! I have so much of it and it drives me crazy. I say 'I get on my own nerves'. That's sad huh? But that is what I dealt with the most during my withdraw from pills. So, hang in there buddy and take some b-complex vitamins, they are lifesavers. I was feeling better by day 14, so just look forward to that day and you might feel a little better. You are such an inspiration.

I so appreciate all the responses I have received. The answer on the anxiety has really helped me have hope that soon I will be my normal self. You all are due a blessing from God so that you can stay sober. When you are feeling sorry for yourself, think of all the good things you do have and cling desperately to those and dwell on them. They are gifts not to be squandered on the likes of the devils drugs. Then pull forward and enjoy the natural high of victory. Love ya all.

You're doing great!

And, yes, I found my anxiety level was through the roof when I stopped drinking. Everything just kept flooding through my mind, almost uncontrollable. Know that you can get through it, and getting through makes it easier to get through tomorrow.

The not sleeping is the toughest. going into day 8. God is working me and he is healing me...just have to show respect and patience. Hope I sleep with about 5 hrs.

I did manage to get about 4 hrs of sleep and am so thankful still remain somewhat tired but on the positive I am somewhat refreshed as well. First night without the sweats and chills. They were mild and tolerable. I think I am heading to soberity in week 2 now. God did touch me last night and I am thankful. He will not give me a load I cannot carry. You people are great. Another day/step toward victory.

Good to hear goofers, I have found that if I am doing the next right thing..... aka his will that he will always provide for my "needs", not my wants, but my needs and for that I am grateful. Hang in there, it sounds as though you are nearing the end of the physical withdrawals.

While it is easier the anxiety is still there somewhat and wonder if it is due to the use of the lorezapam? I am only using one pill for sleeping at night. Should I discontinue as I have used it for 6 days now. I would rather do that and let the anxiety subside by itself and if it doesn't then I know the myleogram triggered it. What think you. any experience with it? Still focused and heading toward victory.

No experience on my end, Goofers.... but glad to see you're asking here!

I hope you get a medical expert to help you with this! They're the best bet for you right now.... my humble opinion.

:praying xxxx Take GOOD care today!

anyone Like wwe wrestling? I guess I am feeling better as I love it and finally can sit still long enough to watch it again. It cheers me up even if it is fake and all. I have loved it since I was a kid........I am looking forward to watching friday night smackdown tonight. This is day 9 or 8 not sure, probably 8 ..........no oh my it is the 9th. Praise the Lord. I actually can sit still long enough to watch my favorite program. appetite is finally starting up again too. I have lost 20 lbs, I need to as I was 324. We need to continue that too. Any other fans out there? Not soberity subject but a cheerup

We can't give medical advice here Goofers - it's in your best interests to see that these things are discussed with your doctor

You have my appologies. I will refrain from that. Just to let you all know I am getting better, still dealing with the anxiety but it is lessening. Hope to sleep tonight naturally without aid. God is still dealing with me and testing my resolve, but I am dedicated to loving him and showing it. It is nice to be back home with him. You all are great and thank you for the positives
