It's hard but you can get thru this. Please get medical help if you start feeling really bad. I hope this can be your last day one.

Hey max,

I know exactly what your are going through. I quit drinking 8 days ago and had a rough 5 days. I can say that I feel so much better now and I know you will too. Hang in there bro!

Can I ask how much you were drinking a day before you stopped? It is dangerous to detox without medical supervision. You definitely want to keep an eye on your blood pressure because you are a higher risk of seizure or stroke. If it climbs to high you may want to consider a trip to the ER. I too detoxed at home and without medical supervision because I am without insurance and could not afford to pay for it out of my pocket.

it is very important to have someone with you all the time.
My worst part hit at day 4 in the middle of the night.
I was rushed to the hospital and they took care of me.

I honestly didnt think i was gonna make it. BOTTOM.

Hey Max - you're an Aussie, yeah?

if you can't find a bulk billing Dr you can always rock up to the local hospital.

if you're in the bush, you can always call this number for advice:

healthdirect Australia is a 24 hour telephone Australian health advice line. If you have a health concern and you’re not sure what to do, simply call 1800 022 222* and speak with a registered nurse. You’ll get fast, expert advice about any health issue, helping you make an informed decision about how to manage it.

This service is not designed to replace your GP or the Triple Zero (000) emergency service, and does not provide any diagnosis – only advice.
healthdirect Australia is available throughout the ACT, NSW, the Northern Territory, South Australia, Tasmania and Western Australia.
