Scared of Dying


I'm seeing my psychiatrist on Wednesday so I can get off the alcohol without having to worry about seizures. I've been drinking 4 bottles a night and today my stomach just can't handle it. I through up the first bottle and are just sipping the second. I'm worried I'll die between now and Wednesday, today is Sunday. I'm a chronic relapser and my stomach obviously isn't happy. The only reason I've been on 4 bottles is so I don't drink and drive. Any suggestions would be highly welcomed.

Hi sweetichick

Is there a way you can see a Dr - any doctor - tomorrow?
All you need to know is that you'll be safe coming off that amount of drinking.

I'd agree with Dee, even if you need to go to the ER tomorrow give it a shot. Staying home drinking 4 bottles a day is not going to help.

sweetichick, It is good that you are thinking about withdrawing safely.
It is Sunday today, medical centres are open, it could be a good place to start. Let them know about your stomach problems and your seizure concerns. The emergency room at the hospital can help as well.

How are you doing Sweetichick? I agree with the others. Can you try and get into the ER today? All you need to know is that you will be able to safely come off of your alcohol consumption safely.

Drinking 4 bottles each day from now through Wednesday isn't going to help you at all.

Good for you on recognizing you need to see your doctor.
