Unhappy Detox and dying - April 21st 2009, 05:35 PM

Argh! I hate this I'm in detox at the moment, mainly because I know I drink far far far too much. I usually go out about 6 nights a week, don't get plastered on all of them, that usually happens on Thursday, Friday and Saturday. I never had, or noticed, a craving for alcohol before, but as soon as I tell my self "Don't Drink", the only thing I can think of going to the pub and getting friendly with another bottle of gin. Grrrr, hate this. Although I do know it's for my own good really, going to try to stick it out as long as possible. Which in all honesty will probably on be until Friday night.
I don't think I'm addicted to alcohol, although I may be getting there...help

I have to say, I do worry when someone says they are going to detox by themselves at home. The majority of people can do it without any medical consequences, yes, but if you begin to have any severe symptoms, you need to take a trip to the ER. Have someone that you can call if this begins to happen, even if it's a cab, so you can get there safely.

Do some reading about detoxing at home and some of the symptoms that you need to monitor as far as going to the hospital, if necessary.

I highly recommend going to a Rehab center to do this. I know they can be on the pricey side, but depressants are the only group of drugs whose withdrawal symptoms can kill you. . It is best for you, and safest to do this with medical professionals around, as they can spot the early signs of strokes and heart attacks which can be common when detoxing from depressants such as alcohol. Medical detox is often needed if the person’s alcoholism was severe. Please at least speak to a medical professional about this as soon as possible. Even if you do not go to rehab, at least inform someone that you are doing this, so that they can help you and be there for you.

Do you have health insurance? In my experience insurance will pay for a five day detox or so.

Detox from alcohol is so dangerous. And there is a chance of you dying without medical attention. My dad went through detox and is was really scary not only for him but for my family too.

So I too agree with what has been said above. Please look into going to rehab.

PM me if you need anything at all. Stay safe, eh?
