Hello Golden Triangle

 

Thanks for your post.

 

I also saw  Baclofen mentioned on a thread here, have been doing some research since.

It has a lot of good reviews and I am probably going to try it, local pharmacy didn`t even know of it and tried to sell me ibuprofen. LOL

 

There is a Fascino branch not far so will head there.

 

May I ask if you feel you have had any side effects from it ?

Dry mouth/tongue seems to be reported, that wouldn`t bother me.

Drowsiness also seems to be reported, have you had that ?

 

Thanks and also Well Done & Good Luck going forward.

Hi seasia, I forgot to say in my last post please let me know how you get on, you didn't say how much or what you drink and I'd be interested (read nosey LOL) on what sort of withdrawal you experience if you don't have a drink, good luck with the Baclofen :thumbsup:

Hi Golden Triangle.

 

For sure.

 

I`ve a thread running in this section.

Had some excellent answers/suggestions there as well as a couple of the inevitable snipes.

 

My drinking quantity increased this year, which is what prompted me to find ways to reduce.

I drink beer, between 8 to 12 X 320ml  per day. ( 5 % proof, don`t touch the stronger beers.)

No spirits, none this year..

I do like a glass of wine with a meal but  halted that 2 or 3 months ago.

 

Reduced beer consumption slightly in the past week.

 

The higher end of my consumption usually on weekends, mostly social.

Pleasant day yesterday, total of 8 x 320 ml, so equivalent to 4 large bottles.

 

Some might regard that as too high I guess.

 

I am going to start with baclofen this Saturday, following the  Aus. website instructions.

 

Already started taking vitamin B complex.

I also drink plenty of water.

 

I am looking to reduce alcohol intake, in time.

 

I feel fairly confident I will succeed.

 

Thanks and again Good Luck with your own regime.

Great news Golden Triangle!! I wish you have a successful detox. I hope you are able to engage with a support network, as there will be times when the urge to drink will become intense at times.  You could utilise YouTube, and watch others going through a similar experience, also see the positive effects on your body each day you stop drinking.

 

Thankyou for sharing your experience and Good Luck!

I have given up alcohol three times, once for nine months, it was easy.  but then I can't sleep. It's horrible tossing and turning all not.  Sleeping Pills available at pharmacy don't really work. So I drink to sleep.

Good luck, keep strong and positive, excersise is also helpful when giving up... Even a 15 minute walk to start with...

That is one of the most stupid threads here.

An advice to use drugs!

Mate, you are an addict to alcohol, your body, especially your kidneys and liver are damaged......and now you are taking another drug, which will have side affects when drinking alcohol.

In addition you are taking drugs without being under supervising of a qualified Doctor.

Or you believe everything what Dr. Google tells you?

After a long time of alcohol abuse the brain doesn't work properly.

After reading your negative reply I thought I would google it,  its description is a muscle relaxant and antispastic, I think you should try it too may help.
