Re: Withdrawal

Thanks Topcat. I'm really nervous and have been told I can't drive. But I'm also worried about how I will feel. I still have two kids to think about although my hubby has taken the week off work. I just dread the sweats shakes and possible vomiting and runs. :-/. Xxx

Hi. I have just got some Kudzu root but it is still sat on my work top untouched. Is it supposed to suppress the urge for alcohol or just help with hangovers?!

Thanks. X
