Hello


New comer here. Actively drinking and trying to come down off heavy drinking bender. Iíve had problem for a years and finally coming to terms. I donít feel like I have any place to turn.

Welcome to a great place for friendship & help, Bullets. No one understands like your fellow alcoholics. You're no longer alone, and you can get free.

Welcome to the family. This is a great place for support and good ideas for getting sober. Come here every day and post your feelings instead of drinking them away.

Welcome Bullets! Super good of you to hit up a meeting . Surround yourself with recovering alcoholics and you're guaranteed to be sorrounded by love, understanding, and support.

I certainly had to fight the physical withdrawal symptoms. Before I quit I was waking up at night in panic / sweats and would drink.

I cold turkied and muscled through withdrawals. I planned on a rough 3-5 days and that's what I got. Still wasn't "fun" after that, but things started getter better.

I remember thinking at that time... That was the first time in years that things were better than the day before.

I was having major urges today. This is my go-to reminder of why I shouldn't.

Those feelings go away when the drinking stops. Let this be the beginning of their end Bullets.

Hi Bullets - hope you're doing OK,

The physical side of it - the night sweats, insomnia the panic, the anxiety, the depression, the headaches, the shakes - all of that is pretty normal.

Of course if you're concerned seeing a Dr is best.

Generally it would take me a good day or two to start to feel better - by the end of my drinking it was taking over a week.

You can post here anytime and get replies, or use the chat room - but for your safety and the safety of others, we generally don't recommend people start texting or calling one another off the boards as strangers.
