Nearing 24 Hours of sobriety - shaky and sick
It's about 5PM Sunday afternoon, I had my last drink around 7PM last night (I think). I've been drinking heavy every day for the last 12 years, sometimes getting drunk several times a day (drink about 6 shots, go to sleep, get up and take more shots, back to sleep). I'm 36 years old, educated, and have an incredible job and an amazing wife. I haven't done anything outrageous while drinking, I won't drive drunk and I'm not an angry drunk. I HAVE to stop, i'm going to eventually get into trouble or end up dead. I would have gone to an AA meeting today but I'm too sick, shaking and sweating. I worked out twice today, I live within walking distance of the gym. Hopefully I can get some sleep tonight and be ready for work tomorrow. I'll check in again tomorrow, or when I next have a craving. I don't have any alcohol in the house, but I live upstairs from a bar. I desperately need help and support, my wife is in California until Thursday and I generally lose control when she's not here. Good God I'm scared.
