Welcome to The End of my Addiction

The primary purpose of this forum is to provide a place where people can lend and get support in our journeys to End Addiction. There are many avenues toward that End. We strive to remain supportive of all of them.

The mission of the forum is to support, educate, inform and advocate for Medications for Alcoholism Treatment (MATs). However, not all of our members use medications, and our goals about how much, when and how often we drink are varied.  Again, we strive to remain supportive of each individual's choices.

      That is a full bucket to deal with Nicnak, hectic times. Best of luck. While not drinking may seem boring through all this, I bet it is helping in ways you may or may not appreciate. It would almost certainly be rougher from inside a bottle! It may not feel that way at the time, but...   Stuck, I hear you on the drop off once the first good habit slides. I'm in the same boat - I pulled a muscle, so stopped running, so picked up smokes, and am feeling lazier by the day. Heroin habit by tomorrow lunch time at this rate.

      More choices that are effective. That's good. Then it's dialing in the right one for the patient's circumstances and that's between the doc and them. Thank the Great Stanhope that it ain't just AA "Sober or Die" anymore.

      I know I'm being more than a little simplistic here, but what if bac works for two people out of 100, and nal works for one person of 100, and a combination of the two works for one person in 1000? The only people that it really matters to are the people that it's helping.  So, who gives a shit about comparing one to another?  If one helps 10 people and another helps 2 people, wtf?  Why does there always have to be a "us vs. them" kind of mentality on these forums?  If AA works for you, that's great, but don't tell everybody that it's the ONLY way and if you can't make it work, then you're not working it and it's YOUR fault! If baclofen works for you, that's awesome!  But don't tell the person that's sober or who has drastically cut their drinking down by using Nal that Bac helps more people!  Who gives a shit?!?  If you have a problem with alcohol, the IMPORTANT thing is to use whatever means that fits with who YOU are and that YOU can be comfortable with.  No shame.  No righteousness. If it works for you ... it works.  And that is good!  Period.

      He is an amazing guy, @Ne1! Been seeing him since 2000, and it's not because he's a schmoe! He really is a good one.  
      He emailed me this morning to let me know he talked with doc W!  Doc W recommended starting with 60mg/day and going up to 100.  Too many side-effects in his opinion going any higher than that. Also to take a Naltrexone in the early afternoon.  I tried Nal a few years ago without success, but that was before I knew about TSM.  So, maybe the two together will be good.  I'm excited!

      @guardian, sorry for your set-back.  Hey, you're here, right?  Fighting back and not giving up.  Give yourself credit for that.
