Actually I think you're in a pretty good place. You're not alone and it sounds like you have parents who really care for you

get yourself checked out - take the worry off you and your parents shoulders Hawk.

Best of luck Hawk. I had the worst withdrawals ever yesterday but Im feeling a bit better today. Just to give my input I really wanted to go to a detox center because they can supposedly stop the chest pain and horrible shakes I was having but there are none I can afford where I live and definately no free ones. I called about 7 places and almost still went nt to the one that charged over 700$ a night. If you have access to a free one you really should consider going.

Dear Friend are you still Sober?
That's all I want to know. 'Cuz I have great news for you if you are...

That means your brain, though it doesn't feel like it... Is already fighting to get you back to normal. You now define what's normal for your brain, and it WILL adjust.

I know it's hard bud... When it feels like your mind is your worst enemy.

I'm not here to give medical advice, but I'm a student of Science, and I know that one of the defining features of drug tolerance is that it's reversible, and that tolerance starts reversing the moment the afflicting substance is not clogging up the functioning of your neurotransmitters.

Hold on my friend. Not only are medical records confidential, but alcohol withdrawal is dangerous. Get to the hospital and the load your bearing will lighten.

If you're not going to a Dr, drink lots of water or Gatorade, eat a banana, take a bath, and pick a show on TV or a book to read. Try some guided meditation on YouTube.

Thinking of ya!

Lol he's right about the Gatorade and Banana. :P

Also... Thiamin will prevent Wernicke-Korsakoff psychosis if you aren't afflicted. And avoid ALL OTC painkillers.

A fifth of vodka, 12 beers and 3 bottles of wine every week for 3 months. I've hit bottom. I just don't want to wonder if i'll still be breathing and alive tomorrow morning.

Tell your father you need to go to the ER. Please. Seizures are no joke. Wishing you well.

Please go.

Hawk the ER docs have done this thousands of times; you'll be safe and properly hydrated and maybe even get some sleep.

Hi Hawk. You decided to go with your dad, that's good. You know your body better than any one else so listen to what's it's telling you. Remember where you were last night at this time and realize that you have decided to make an important step. Now you are facing another decision. Listen to what your body is saying to you. Listen to what that fear is telling you. Go to the hospital and see what they can offer you there. Do it for yourself and for your dad. This is temporary and it will get better but now that you have taken that very important first step, another step follows. The picture you have posted has stepping stones on it. I see you taking those steps right now but it's a slow process and you have to follow the first with another until you are where you want to be. You have been through hell and I'm worried about your physical ability to detox on you own. You really should take that next step and go to the hospital. Continuing to pray for you.

I am sorry for your situation Hawk. When you are able, do journal tho as experience so you can remember if ever tempted to drink again. I am sorry to sound dumb. What's a 5th?

Thinking of you Hawk, and know your Dad will never forsake you. Neither will God. Keep us posted, we care
