Useful Links on Withdrawals, Relapse and Recovery I Found Today

Particularly, this site taught me that post acute withdrawal exists and can last for two years after that last drink! It also provides tips for avoiding a slip during this time: Addictions and Recovery.org - Relapse Prevention and Coping Skills

What to expect from PAWS: Why We Don’t Get Better Immediately: Post-acute Withdrawal Syndrome (PAWS) What…Me Sober?

Information that every time we relapse, the withdrawals become worse. That really explains my experience lately, where I wasn't really drinking that much but had awful reactions (see the Kindling Model): https://webapps.ou.edu/alcohol/docs/...yndrome149.pdf

Anyway I thought might be educational for some of you!
