Sorry to hear of your struggle Hooped, like others have said sudden withdrawal is dangerous so please get the help you need to get through this. You've been missed in the Sept class, Ive had my own struggles and can relate to the merry-go-round. We're all climbing the same mountain friend and the first step is always the hardest, but there are people on here who have kept going sober and they inspire me and show me that it can be done. I hope and pray that you get through this- it speaks volumes how much people care for you on here by all the supportive posts you've received- use this as motivation to change and be the 'real' you. Wish you all the best.

I would try calling again. Many recovery hotlines are staffed by volunteers and they might have been very busy or missed the message between shifts. Keep trying until you get through and hope you can stay safe until seeing your DR tomorrow ( and sober! )

thank you
i realize some of us are beyond repairable and that is described in the big book
i really don't know if i fall into that category or not at this point in time
my liver apparently is on its way out to pasture
if i can quit pronto i have some kinda hopeful outcome
AA is not a hopeful alternative for me at all.
I had a very very bad experience at AA and although i still have the big book on my bookshelf it is no longer a reasonable outlet for me

Hooped: DO NOT GIVE UP. One of husbands colleagues had complete liver failure, spent a few months in the hospital waiting for a new liver AND HE GOT ONE. Since before Thanksgiving, so... 6 months. It can be done, do not give up. Please. Ahem.

Seems like you have a lot of people with a lot of good suggestions that you're simply not taking up.

Like I said upthread - none of us can make you sober...in the end the choice is yours Hooped...

more of this - or not.
This...or the man you want to be.

I hope you'll make a good decision, mate.

Hooped - I remember you. I'm just seeing your thread now - wanted to send you some love and concern.

You are not beyond repair. You reached out for a reason - you want to heal and have a good life again. You can do it. We're with you.
