Greetings /detox/.

After really admitting to myself how badly my alcohol addiction was affecting other aspects of my life, I have made a serious decision to stop usage for a while. I am going to document my journey in this thread to amuse the bored, encourage those who may be dealing with similar problems, and to keep myself focused and honest. If I slip up I will be honest as well.

Little background:
>Duration of alcoholism: 8 years
>Frequency of consumption: 5-7 days per week with no period of abstinence longer than 2 days
>Amount consumed per day: ~7oz of ethanol in an evening
>Affected aspects of life: work, school, relationships, hobbies, mental and physical health

I am currently on my fourth day with no alcohol and I am already seeing and feeling notable improvements in my body and mind. I will go over how each day felt.

>First 24 Hours
By far the worst. Not only from the withdrawals, but the knowledge that booze is not coming any time soon. Sweating, shaking hands, lack of appetite, insomnia, flushed skin, increased blood pressure, irritability, dark and disturbing dreams when sleep comes in fits

>24-48 Hours
The dandruff I started to notice over the past couple of months already looks almost completely cleared up, amazingly, as well as a few pimples on my face. Bloating of abdomen and general system-wide inflammation decreased. Belly size shrunk, clothes fitting looser. Appetite growing. Sleeping still difficult, but less sweating. Occasional faint auditory hallucinations.

>48-72 Hours
Getting more bearable. Starting to feel a tiny glimmer of hope that I can rise out of the hole I have dug. Shits are solid and don't smell sickly sweet. Further decrease in bloating and inflammation. Since digestive system has finally caught a break from continuous processing of toxic poison sludge (I mostly drink 40's containing HFCS), my appetite is extremely strong. Mind fog starting to lift. Almost scared at the resurgent cognition after removing CNS depressant. Like a muffled voice that can finally speak freely, my thoughts are racing almost faster than I can keep up.

>72-96 Hours
This is where I am now. Can't sleep tonight, I'll just pull an all-nighter and crash tomorrow night. After laying in bed awake for a few hours I decided to make this thread. My digestive system feels wonderful. You don't know how nice a solid poop is until you are a truly depraved alcoholic. My mind feels clear. I am looking forward to a nice big nutritious breakfast tomorrow since I won't be hungover and bloated and nibbling on toast. I am no longer perspiring abnormally, and the shakes in my hands are almost 100% gone, I can hold them very still like I used to.


I won't blog this shit every day, but every few days I'll update my detox thread for my own viewing later. Anyone has comments/questions, toss 'em in the thread.

Nowhere near as long as you but I stopped after too much a few months ago and haven't looked back. Recently took up running too.. just a few days a week but I go out and try and stay out for an hour.. I'll stop to breathe or walk some distance and just sweat and sweat... its only added to the positive mental effects I achieved through stopping drinking. I feel much smarter and able to handle life since taking it up

Thats a good idea actually
Just remember every time you try to stop. It builds up momentum. If you fail and drink you have more success the more times you try... it took me many times quitting to get it done for a significant period of time, but I'm glad I never gave up on trying.

That is a perfect way to change your routine, working it into another working routine.
Will go to a liquor store and think, I didn't drink last night, surely I can live another night without. Or when I usually get alcohol just by default, even late, and just think,
if I wait another hour, it will be too late to get some. Wake up in the AM and maybe think, that was definately a good move by not buying.

Seen this? He touches on a really important principle, that if you want to stop doing some kind of thing you need to find a suitable replacement. In his case he replaced a ket habit with ultra running and a specific diet.

Hey, same guy but assuming my ID will have changed due to different location today... To answer your questions - well in a nutshell I've been doing all of this for years now. I'm not shitting on what you're saying, but I've been there done all that. Now maybe that's enough for some people to quit their addictive behaviour, but for a lot of others it wont be. Looking for the underlying cause is stepping it up a level when the basic 'lifestyle changes' just dont cut it. I mean I've just been diagnosed with Bipolar (as said in my last post) and your reaction to that post is to question whether I get exercise and eat right?? I agree with some of the stuff you said as a general rule, but you shouldn't dismiss looking deeper into self for the underlying cause or for answers to problems.

That was a super chill video. Today I am 10 months clean from opiates, benzos and meth, and I've been really trying to look at some kind of healthy hobby. Skateboarding and swimming were what I had in mind

Ive been clean from stims fot a couple of months now, and still dont feel anywhere close to normal. I blew a couple years of my life abusing vyvanse heavily, and occasionally other stims, and finally got fed up with it. Still not feeling close to normal is extremely discouraging and hellishly depressing. Im terrified that i have ruined my life, and i cant see myself living my life feel flat like this forever. i cant even take normal doses of stimulants without chest pains and other worrying symptoms either now, so i cant supplement the fucking dopamine i need either. i cannot go on like this much longer, if you guys have been through this and recovered please tell me... i really need some kind of hope tight now...

Sorry to hear you're really struggling - I'm not familiar with stims as such. I mean I've dabbled with a few, but I'm no expert in this area - Opi's were my downfall! But in terms of trying to get the natural dopamine going again, i do know that l-tyrosine is a good supplement to take. Cant remember the exact science of it, but I think it somehow gets your body producing it's own dopamine again. If you aren't on any sort of antidepressant medication - also worth looking at 5htp too. Another good supplement which helps kickstart the good brain chemicals! All I can say is keep going with what you're doing and have hope! Things will get better as time goes on - but I know that's not going to help you now. Just try to remain positive if you can. Distract yourself with new hobbies, even some light to moderate exercise can help boost natural endorphins etc...

I had the same thing as this >>30516 guy except euro speed and RCs instead of meth. Six months is the usual healing time after hard drug abuse. It doesn't mean you'll be normal after 6 months but you will feel much better. Just keep going and remember that actively bettering your life is a just as huge factor in regenerating as time. I know it's very hard, when the dopamine needed for motivation, which in turn is needed to start doing things actively is missing.

>>30515

The exact chemistry is that L-Tyrosine is converted to Levodopa, than that is converted to Dopamine. You don't need expensive supplements, tyrosine is one of the 20 amino acids found in proteins. Another one of those is phenilalanine which is converted to tyrosine in the body if needed. So OP eat lots of protein (meat, legumes, diaries, etc). Try to excercise. In the first few weeks you have to force yourself but it works wonders after that.

OP there is hope, lot of people came out of that pit before. It sucks major dicks now, but you'll get better and you'll be proud of yourself and maybe even a happy person.

Run out of hash, admittedly I dont smoke much, 1 gram can last weeks, though I was doing codeine too and Naproxen both for pain, CBD ran out of and Im only eating fish, nuts, eggs, some greens, greek yogurt. My anti biotics course just finished. Im trying to be clean for a bit, hadnt fapped for a week and a half but was feeling highly strung and was so horny other night I ordered a fleshlight

On my fridge it says, No nicotine (was doing snuff), caffeine (gives me tmj), alcohol (self explanatory) sugar (trying to slim down)

So Im low carb no drink or drug atm, it kinda just happened, feel like I need to clean my system a bit. Will have a little drink and eat whatever over my bday next weekend, hope that doesnt mess up my hard work. Might have to get some hash (I can get bored) but that'll be all.

feeling kinda clean tbh feels good man :)

Russell Brand whilst he used to be insufferable to me, this latest converastion with Doctor and Addiction expert Gabor Mate was music to my ears.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-mJnYmdVmQ is the link.

It might be useful to some people here... but it goes a lot deeper than addiction... Particularly awesome to me was the part about parenting which I thought is something that needed to be said that isnt talked about a lot.

Benzodiazepines: A story of love, memory, and the pending doom

I started in 2016. Following some horrible life events, I placed a clearnet order for etizolam. I should have seen a doctor. I should have heeded the warnings. But after what I went through I couldn’t handle sleeping one hour a night for weeks on end.

No, wait, let’s jump back four years. I dated a girl with a clonazepam script which she seldom used. I would occasionally take 1-2mg. I never had a problem. I had a problem with other drugs, but not benzodiazepines. It is a fact rarely disputed in the medical or harm reduction communities that while occasional benzodiazepine use is safe, long-term use can bring on withdrawals that are “worse than heroin.”

Now, let’s set the record straight. I’ve done enough heroin to develop an addiction. Benzodiazepines are worse. Prolonged use, even at therapeutic doses of benzodiazepines, can result in months of acute withdrawal and years of post-acute withdrawal syndrome (PAWS).

From etizolam I found clonazolam. I never really liked it, but I would cut it up onto very tiny doses (well-aware of the dangers of hot spots in vendor-pressed 1mg pills of anything). And after a year or so, I started to wake up unable to see.

Really. Etizolam has a quite short half-life, so taking it and going to bed for 8 hrs is enough to wake up with your hands involuntarily shaking, your eyes misprocessing reality - I don’t know if they were seizures, but they might as well have been. From there, I reached out for help online.

I spent hours each day researching taper schedules, reviewing equivalency charts, methodically planning my mathematical reduction to zero.

And I still failed. It took 12mg diclazepam - the equivalent of 120mg diazepam - to finally stabilize. But everyone in my life could tell, from my past behavior to my new I-just-don’t-give-a-fuck attitude followed by random extreme panic attacks when I made dose reductions.

I did eventually seek out medical help. I couldn’t get past 3mg diclazepam (but I went 12->3 myself!). So I started calling psychiatrists. And rehabs. I had people tell me a taper is crazy, that it just keeps you addicted longer (if a psychiatrist or mental health counselor ever tells you this, review the Ashton Manual and run the other way. Consult a real doctor). Eventually I found someone.

I’ve done well with 15% or so reductions every few months. Stable, holding down a job, starting to regain love in life and hobbies and everything I had before my life fell apart.

PSA: avoid daily benzodiazepine use. It is fundamentally unsafe.

I’ll write more as time provides.

Okay. I do lot of drugs. Not like in a totally self destructive way, but I tend to get lazy and then sit around and then do drugs to not go insane just sitting around, and then I start doing drugs to put up with the drugs that I did earlier. It's stupid. Mostly a bad habit. I just need a bit of help really. Like an AA sponsor that I can call and talk to when I crave. I just need to break the cycle for like a week. How do I do that? How do I get an AA/NA sponsor? How do I get help? I don't know why but I'm really bad at this it's like a curse I don't know what to do

AA a cult. I can buy that. The sayings, if not said already. One is, if you have one foot in the past and one in the future you are pissing on today. So basically you are going nowhere, if you don't recognize your past, which it says to do, by apologozing those you have possibly harmed in the past, which at times cannot really be done.

Sorry already very drunken person, for that time I hit you when you did whatever that was way out of line. Explanation, there is none. How does one apologize for
some other drunks antics, which you were as bad. One I could say is family friends who do not drink, where you were out of line. No active sponsor, longtime
advocate of 30 in 30, group so-called moderator or leader I have ever listened to could explain apologizing to somebody who is just as much an ass or even more than they ever were and make 'amends.'

In all, it is just a circle of nothing. where people bicker like drunks over simple and quite straightforward meaningful statements as being wrong. Higher class meetings are obviously different than the hardcore idiot groups that at least one out of a few has woken up with a black eye at least a few times.

Medicaid will or should pay for most alcohol treatment, in patient outpatient. Medical detoxes as well in most states. Psychiatry, treatment centers that specialize with drug alcohol abuse.
Which are likely best bet for privacy.

There are county/state run places, but your confidentiality is maybe not so confidential. So especially county state places, especially. Tread lightly on you usage and past details.

Private run places may ask about drug usage and possible criminal records. They may say you don't have to answer these. So tread lightly and not go overboard and spill your life story until you feel you have a trust relationship. The if wanted, if you think it helps get a bit deeper.

If questions seem very awkward in nature in the scope of things. Do keep thinking.

If mostly jobless, paid under the table. Your should qualify for medicaid. If you do not have medicaid, regardless, do get it. Like call tomorrow. Today. If ever have an accident, a hospital
may charge $1000s for at times doing basically nothing. If wanted drugs that help with alcohol opiate usage can be prescribed and a co-pay is like two bucks. So seek a primary care Dr, and a specialist psychiatrists, addiction center and get things rolling.

As the Ziggy Marly tune goes;
Tomorrow will never come
Tomorrow is never here
So don't you put off what we can do right now
'Cause tomorrow will never appear

I think I'm understanding what you were getting at? There was some good advice in that - but it sort of looks like you had a mind-dump moment whilst amped up on stims or something? It reads very 'speedy' and all...Anyway anyone is welcome here - this board is dead as fuck! We need more people inputting in this place for sure!! For me - I've never done the AA /NA thing, but I do go to a group recovery programme which I find very helpful. Just working through your own shit and listening to others with similar experiences makes me feel like I'm not just this one freak. It makes you realise so many people from different backgrounds deal with substance abuse and addiction. Theres a comfort I take from that - the whole 'you are not alone' vibe...

12 steps, one is making amends to people you have harmed when you were drinking. When possible. The step is basically unachievable. Some people don't want top see you or you may not want to see them. So the cult as is said, many of the long-timers will say, well you cannot get past this step, you did not make enough effort.

If one says, I finished this (certain) step, they may get totally dumped on. Hearing, no you didn't. Your lying to us and you are lying to yourself, you have not acquired that step. Where it would seem that the person felt comfortable sharing his feelings of accomplishment.

This may turn into nothing but just reaming on the person for big part of the meeting.

My guess leaving the person to just go, screw it, gonna buy a bottle.

Where a person gets highly praised saying they 'relapsed and drank for days and this was their first meeting sense.

Where are you from? I know Wellbutrin (think that's how you spell it) which is technically an antidepressant, actually works well when taken at smaller doses for quitting smoking. I dont think its necessarily called that brand always, the underlying compound of that brand name is what you should look into, but here in the UK, although it's not licensed as an antidepressant like in the USA, it is licensed under a different brand name as a smoking cessation treatment. Sorry the detail is missing, but hopefully I've given you enough so you can look up for yourself and decide if it's an option for you and in your country....

thankyou for the honesty
sometimes i have really great sober experiences like last night, where i really did feel like i did before i started smoking, then get really hype that i'm gonna quit but within 2-3 days i think i can handle it again and just restart weed, meaning i barely ever get to that week/month of no THC that makes you feel a lot better. i also have aspergers and weed became a habit/self med very quick.

i need to remember that even if i did get weed i wouldn't enjoy it, it's literally the looking forward to weed that is more hype at this point and hoping it'll be like the first time, then getting disappointed when vaping a q in a day does barely anything.

its a marathon, not a race. In order to complete a marathon, some degree of motivation is needed. Not wanting to quit is normal, it feels good in the short term, so ur brain is like man, when it feels so good, why shouldnt I?

Been in your shoes although for 10years. For me, my tipping point was when I started to sell in order to fund my own addiction. I had access to more than normal, combined with less clients to turn a profit. Then I smoked so much that I didnt even get high even though it was the dankest dank I ever had. Also witnessing my childhood friends being literally useless stone-heads made me ask myself; is this how I wanna live? My connection's constant bad mood also motovated me alot, I dont wanna end up as a raging idiot who misunderstands everything and over-reacts to petty trivial shit. Im only a week sober, but this time I will not re-lapse. I have had long breaks before, but as soon as I go for "1 J only" Im suddently back on the fog-train, seemingly unable to control my own legs as I end up at my dealer's place. Even though I really disliked the feeling of being high fter being sober for a while, I still ended up om the daily fog-tain going nowhere but to KFC and burgerking.

Cut all your "friends". In my case they never respected my wishes to stop and thus just a little preassure from them is enough if you have a weak moment of cravings. Get hobbies, eat healthy, workout and find your purpose is my tips. But first of all, in order to succseed you need to want it from the bottom of your heart!

I was/am a nightly smoker of cannabis (3 years) and have done quite a bit of thinking behind why I smoke. I’ve decided to drastically cut back and having it really only be a weekend thing, if at all. I don’t drink or do other drugs but I do take anti-anxiety medication (20mg) and am concerned about that sort of combination...I’m also concerned about withdrawal. I’ve done some T breaks in the past and while I haven’t smoked for 3 days this week, I’m feeling symptoms of restlessness and struggling to get out of bed but it’s been nothing that’s caused me to not function throughout the day for my job. I’ve heard tapering off is one way to alleviate symptoms but I’m the sort of person who would want to quit cold turkey. Anyone with similar experiences want to chime in? Thank you.

Hey man, well done for wanting to take the steps to quit! So one thing I will say, is weed doesn't give you physical withdrawal like say Opiates / Alcohol or Benzos - but I get that probs doesn't mean it's going to be easier for you... Just remember you are not physically dependent on this stuff, you've just built up a psychological problem towards it. This means you stand a chance of beating this shit straight up with the right mindset and tools. I guess sleeping is going to be a problem right? If you wanna do this as drug free as possible, maybe get some light / moderate exercise during the day and start getting a bedtime routine in place which includes a bath 45 mins before bed. Anxiety wise, you have meds you already take right? Can you review this with your doc? Make sure dose is correct and be honest with the doc about what you're dealing with! They actually can be useful in signposting you to local drug & alcohol support groups which in my opinion, can be really great if you find the right one! Also practice slow breathing and 'mindfulness'. It sounds like BS at first, but it kinda works If you invest in taking it seriously.

So I've got mild aspergers (you wouldn't know it unless you really paid attention to me or you just know the signs), been depressed for as long as I can remember, and 99% sure I've got ADHD, but In all these years I've never been officially diagnosed because they (therapists, doctors, counselors) won't shut the fuck up about my depression and want to only focus on that. (yeah doc, I can't concentrate at work, constant brain fog, blah blah blah, oh and I feel shitty about myself. doctor 'WHAT DEPRESSION?! Here take some prozac, and don't mention that brain fog bullshit again")
About 6 months ago I started smoking a lot of weed, all the time. Thinking that it would alleviate some of the everyday suffering I go through due to my fucked up brain.

NOPE. It has fucked up my short and long term memory even more than previously, fucked up my emotions, appetite, motivation. I went from fucked up to really fucked up, but now I get "munchies" and listen to the same album 8 times in a row.
I'm trying to cut out weed, so I can be "normal" fucked up again.

yep, i have taken it before and i'm actually currently taking it to deal with weed & suboxone wds. it does a lot for the symptoms of weed wds because it increases your body's production of glutamate. i dont fully understand why it works so well but it takes the nausea, temperature issues, and other shit down considerably. i cant recommend this shit enough.

Interesting! I'm gonna do some more of my own research on this stuff - personally weed isn't my issue, but I'm on a bupe script atm - if theres anything that may help me when I taper / finally jump off, then I'm all ears!! Thanks for the heads up man, appreciated

After smoking cannabis concentrates very heavily for years to stopping cold turkey I feel as if I'm having rebound anxiety. Has any had similar experiences and maybe some helpful tips? I've always had some anxiety, but now it's almost a 24/7 experience. Also it's only been a week since I quit, can I expect it to lessen over time? Would CBD be helpful? I have Clonazepam available too, but I'm really trying to avoid daily use of that for obvious reasons. Thank you kindly 420chan gurus!

Why are African immigrant parents in the West generally against drug use, even the legal kinds (medicines, alcohol)? I'm 21 but repeating school and I've noticed that black kids along with muslim kids have this hang up about drug use.

The European kids (Irish, Polish) generally are tolerant of it/use it themselves.

I dont get this post to be honest. Are you really trying to make a point, or just being a racist fuck hoping to get people 'triggered' ??

Has to do with cultural differences I assume. You'd probably be saying the same thing about asian kids since Asian countries have very strict drug laws.

This. Opiates may seem like bliss, but they will strip people of their soul before they even know what they've got into. I'm just trying to stay clean personally now - think I'm finally done with the Opi game. I cant manage occasional use, so I would rather just commit to never again at this point....

Gonna agree with this person here, opiates are baaad news, even if they make you feel good. Best to steer clear, think about how many stories you've heard about people having good long term relationships with opiates.

Those stories don't exist, eventually you get clean or you die.

Exactly - sooo many people think they can just use occasionally, and maybe they do for a little time. Then before you know it, an extra day here and there and the next thing you know - it's a daily habit. Then you realise actually it's not even getting you feeling that good anymore, so you try to stop - but it's too late. Your body gets sick if you stop. That shit is demoralizing - when you dont want to use, but you got to use to keep yourself from puking up and shaking and sweating etc... Nah - I'm deffo done with Opi's lol fuck putting myself through the misery
