The End of my Addiction

Looking to connect with others on long term Baclofen


Recommended Posts

Hello.  I am a 54 year old woman who has been taking high dose Baclofen for over 10 years now.  I started after reading the book My Way Out and never looked back.   Initially I reached indifference after about 4 months titrating up to over 300 mg.  I eventually titrated back down to around 200 where I stayed for years and have to say drank like a normal casual drinker. I chose never to stop fully, but rather taught myself how to drink properly (one here and there and occasionally more but controlled). The Baclofen made this possible for me as I did not obsess about wine any longer. I simply chose to have it when I felt like it, which was occasionally vs. every night, and much more social than isolated.  I believe fully that this medication fixes the compulsive chemical imbalance that is very real in some of us.

I am looking to connect with others who may be out there, like me, that have been taking Baclofen for a long time. I still take it on a daily basis. I currently take 80-100 mg still per day.  I have remained on this journey alone following my own instincts and self. In the beginning there were online forums available and very active which I miss.  I hope to meet others that are "old timers" with this form of treatment so we can share, care and support each other.

Hi @Ritalil! I am also an "old timer" who has been taking Baclofen since December 2010. I hit my switch in February 2011. My ten-year anniversary thread is on the My Way Out medication forum. I also am taking around 100 mgs/day, though I go up or down now and then. Welcome!
