New guy

Yesterday is my second (really gonna try this time) attempt to stop drinking, as I write this I'm having the shakes. I first started when I was 13 by taking beer from my dad, by the time I was 17 I was going into Bars (I look older than I really am) by 21 I was drinking a 12 pack everyday. I won't bore everybody with my life story but here I am.

Welcome Changed
You'll definitely find support here

Have you seen a Dr? I recommend it. Detox can sometimes be tricky for some of us.

Welcome to SR! It's best if you get medical help before detoxing. Prescription detox meds help so that you do no harm to your heart or brain.

Welcome! The shakes suck, you should see a Dr. for some medical assistance. Even a Prompt-Care type clinic will do, explain to them what you are doing. They will take your vitals and probably give you a few valium to help you get through the physical symptoms. Whatever you do, don't give in and have a drink to stop the shakes.
