What kind of post detox treatment did they give you? The detox I came from set me up to an Intensive Outpatent Program as well as the local recovery group. I had very little problems when I first got out of detox my first time around. It was a clean break and they did a good job of preparing us when we left. Of course they're all different.

I recommend going to that meeting you mentioned, getting some numbers and checking to see if there are any other additional outpatient and relapse prevention groups. I had alot of issues with my Post Accute Withdrawls. I suggest if you don't have one already or if you do to go to your physician and let them know you just came from detox so they can be of assistance if you need any test or even some medicine to help you with anything.

Don't waste the time you had to be away in that experience which you did not find comforting. Let it stay with you that you don't want to return and you've started and completed the first pathway to recovery.

You'll be alright brother, just take it one day at a time.

Welcome mercedes!

Congratulations on getting sober! After I stopped drinking, it took a while to feel positive and healthy again. I learned a bit about patience in that time(!). It does get better, though, so hang in there! Glad you're being proactive in your recovery and welcome to a great place.

Welcome to SR Keith

Is this the first time you've quit drinking? I never went to rehab but after I quit I did feel pretty rubbish for months but it does get better. Glad you're getting some support and I am sure SR will be of help too x

Do everything you can so you don't drink. If you still drink after doing everything you can then go to AA.

That's the only thing that worked for me. I had to surrender ... not fight.

All the best.

It's great to have you with us, Keith. I was able to stop drinking after 30 yrs. due to the help and support I received here. This is a great place, and we all understand how you feel. You can do this.
