Am I being daft


I am aware you are not meds.


But I had a relapse (maybe e 1 litre vodka per day).

II also had litres of water each ay

Am I stupid and I'll still have to withdrawal??

I understand librium/diazemrp iis safest.

Thanks x

Withdrawal is possible if you drank alcohol regardless of what you drank with it. A liter of vodka a day for even one day is an extreme amount of alcohol to be drinking.

I'd suggest seeing a doctor if you've had bad withdrawals in the past.

hello stoprelapsing,

not meaning to be a butt, but...
the name, stoprelapsing ... stopthinkingaboutpinkelephants doesn't seem to be the 'ideal' name if i am trying to stop thinking about pink elephants?

transitioning thru a phase of name changes may be an option?

It's always a good idea to talk to your dr if you're concerned about withdrawals. He will be able to discuss medication with you, too.

In my experience it worked this way round:

0. Try everything that doesn't work
1. admittedpowerlessness,unmanageability
2. cameto believethereisawaytoreallygetsober
3. madeadecisiontoturnmylifeovertothisprogramofsobrie ty
4. madeasearchingandfearlessmoralinventory
5.

7.
8.
9.
10.
11.
12.
13. Stoprelapsingand stay stopped

We take the steps to recover, not the other way around.

Thanks Gottalife,

I like your feedback.
In my post, I was suggesting that at step 0. 'stoprelapsing' may not be an effective 'name', and was suggesting a transition of names, changing from 'stoprelapsing' to names based on working the progression of the Steps, which you outlined very well.
