thanks for your inputs <:)>
dont worry kazz, im off to bed now, day 14 done.
i do wake up happy im sober,and i dont 'plan' to drink, but my vast experience of falling off when the going gets tough,or good,tells me i probably will again. yes its negative, but id rather say it before than be posting on here drunk and full of regret and despair.

the sinclair method requires the user to drink in order for the brain to learn it gets no buzz from drinking, this is what i will ask the consultant. if he thinks it will work fine staying AF, i will do my best to. although a small part of me will want to test this. honesty being the best policy.

bedtime now, 10pm. (if i was drinking it'd be more like 12.30)

There was a time I would have thought No 9 in this list was a really good idea and would probably have killed myself with the stupid thing. (I used to fall over a lot.) :shock:

another link on relapse management,seems to be just bullet points, but it mentions the whole eurphoric recall and awfulizing abstinence that we all seem to suffer from.
(seems to be AA based but not too pushy)

I haven't been through it to form an opinion on whether it is AA based but the presenters are identified as working at Dawn Farm which uses a 12 step program.

Has anybody else spotted the 'Catch-22' which locks you into an endless recovery paradox?

I posted this on the July General Support And Chat thread but thought it was worth copying here too :

I have been doing some research into the treatment of alcoholics with thiamine (vitamin B1) to help protect their memories/brains and have found some interesting links on the subject via Google Scholar. This is a hobby horse of mine because my memory used to be generally okay (at least when I was sober) until I went through a cold turkey withdrawal. I asked for help from doctors during the first week of my sobriety and got no advice or guidance whatsoever. My memory and organisational skill are now appalling. I often wonder how I would have been now if I had been given appropriate treatment or advice during that first week.

Guidance For The Prescribing Of Vitamin And Mineral Supplements For Hospitalised Patients With A History Of Excess Alcohol Consumption

THIAMINE ADMINISTRATION IN ALCOHOL-DEPENDENT PATIENTS

THE ROYAL COLLEGE OF PHYSICIANS REPORT ON ALCOHOL: GUIDELINES FOR MANAGING WERNICKE’S ENCEPHALOPATHY IN THE ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT ***

THE TREATMENT OF PATIENTS AT RISK OF DEVELOPING WERNICKE’S ENCEPHALOPATHY IN THE COMMUNITY

*** There are some further links of interest within this article that are worth looking at
"I would rather be a non-drinker with the occasional desire to drink, than a drinker with the constant desire to quit."

I didn't know where best to post this. It is an extremely good article about alcoholism, sobriety and the reactions of others to both conditions.

Let me do sobriety my way

Definitely worth the time invested in reading it!

i posted a similar link about psilocybin the compond in magic musrhooms and its effect on alcoholics.
i really would give it a try, whats to lose? theres no addictive element ,apparently, i took them once as a teen but obviously not enough. shit ive done enough bad crap before, this would be simple. i know to take them in a positive mood etc.. , just need to find a dealer :?
