i went into detox on jan 1st and was there for about a week, trying to taper off benzos. now im out and doing PHP at the same hospital (basically double intensive outpatient-6hrs a day). i was heavy on benzos for about a year and a half and thought i was invincible to the shitty withdrawals, but here i am, feeling like i'm about to have a seizure any minute. i really wanted to quit cold turkey (dangerous, i know) but the docs and therapists insist that I take at least 3mg ativan daily for now. I feel so guilty that i still have to take this shit just to not die bc ive already ruined many beautiful relationships and betrayed my familys' trust. idk where this is going i'm just fucking blogging at this point. but im looking for support, advice, or any other thoughts on benzo tapering/withdrawal. thanks guys

hey man good luck w your taper. i got switched from ativan to klonopin 0.5 mg twice a day, the doc said i'd probably finish the taper with valium. it's getting better, feeling less seizure-ish but the derealization and mental side effects are a bitch and a half.

Things you could or would have been doing if you hadn't been stuck drinking daily.
Daily nightly drinking sucks all of your casual activities away. Even if you do stuff
when drinking, usually though your interest are occupied with drinking then feeling like crap the next day, so you don't do or accomplish much of anything until you stop for a while.

Any experience with hair test? Looking to land a student CDL job but pretty much every company hair test. Was a regular smoker as of November 12thish, smoked once on new year's and once again about 5 days ago. Will that set my ass back another 90 days? Probably going to pay for a test at LabCorp or some shit but super interested to hear thoughts

What's your question? Surely you can read the information on the test and know that the test is designed to catch people like you and remove you from the application process. So it's really working as designed.

Yeah def can see that haha. That information online is fairly lackluster, heard people failed as far back as a year some say 90 days is good. Considering I'm close to about 60 days out from heavy usage with two smoke sessions over the past month wondering what kind of impact those two sessions would have, but more or less I'm wondering if anyone out there has had experience taking these type of tests and there success. Not looking for tips and tricks cause I rather go the patient route, but I find myself having difficulty leaving money on the table and almost would rather risk the bare minimum number of days required to start a solid career.

Also super regretting those couple tokes with the possibility of having been cleared of toxins within a 30 day period. You win some you lose some should have done more research prior to hitting the blunt but what's done is done

I need to pass a test on Friday. It is Wednesday right now. I need my urine to only test positive for methadone use as I am on a maintenance program and had a slip. If I give someone a very small amount of methadone will it show up properly on the test? I'm in Canada if that helps.

See, I plan to give a friend some methadone. They would prefer to not take much. I am on a fairly low dose myself (1.2ml aka 12mg)

haven't smoked in a month and about a week. 245 510. Shit diet, been lazing around alot aswell so I would be lying if I was to say I was active lately. However, I do drink about 2-3 gallons of water daily and always have. Plan on diluting anyhow but not subbing. What does Chan think my chances are? This isn't really a make a break but it would sure be nice. I know it's a 10 panel lab but don't know cuttof so let's assume it's 20ng..

Yeah def OP here. Smoked a blunt on new years, first time smoking since I quit also probably the 'last'. I felt like I was tripping on mushrooms I was so fucking high. Besides that Gunna pay for a lab test in about 15 days and see how fast the one time cleans out. Probably report back again afterwards, end goal is a state job and probably should have denied the blunt.. but fuck it it's 2020

Alcohol Abstinence Thread

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.

When I got clean and sober I went to Alcoholics Anonymous. Nothing like being around a bunch of people that are just as fucked in the head as you are.

Lots of coffee, cigarettes, i've been dry for over a year now.

I was the kind of alcoholic that would drink mouthwash if I couldn't get liquor. It was bad.

I ended up drinking on Thanksgiving, but I'd still call it a success. It was still probably the longest I've gone without drinking since I started.

I shouldnt be here, ive done this atleast 7 times now. but still i trip myself out. Took swab nov 8th. nov 6th and 7th i smoked rez packs being a week minded fool. About 12 hours in between smoking rez and test. ate pizza all night, brushed 3 times before test, mouthwashed 3 times, swished with cold water and whole milk, chewed some cope driving up there, swished peroxide immediately before walking in and chewed a jolly rancher 5 minutes up to the test. Its for amazon and like i said ive DONE THIS PLENTY OF TIMES. But i would love if some fellers out there could calm my nerves.. Hate the waiting game.

Been sober for over a month now (no alcohol, weed, or cigarettes). Combined with better exercise and diet, I'm feeling better than I've felt in a while. I originally planned to stay sober for a month, but at the moment I've been thinking of keeping it going long term.

Christmas and New Year's are coming up though. I'll be spending the time with my friends (live abroad so no family to see) and they will be drinking, taking weed edibles, and generally being merry in the Xmas season. I know that I could stay sober, but I also want to chill out and enjoy some mulled wine, and get blazed while we watch Shrek and eat Christmas dinner.

Do you think it's viable to break my sobriety on Christmas Eve/Day, and again possibly on NYE, and then continue my sobriety in 2020? Open to opinions and advice.

I like to think I wasn't addicted. I was drinking a fair amount (2-3 times a week, sometimes alone) and I was definitely drinking to avoid dealing with my emotions/future. I quit everything cold turkey after making a decision to get my head clear for next summer, when I have some big choices to make.

So I don't believe that drinking/getting high on Xmas/NYE would throw me back into a habit. Ultimately, I'm worried that I wouldn't be able to enjoy myself as I am annoyed or upset that I broke my streak.

Addiction is a loaded word that just means compulsive behavior, and like any compulsive behavior it can be replaced with other behaviors and extincted (this is a budget definition of CBT/Behavior Mod). If you're addicted and quit, and white knuckle your way through detox, counting the days until you can drink again, then you're absolutely right, the addiction is still in control. But when you can objectively look around and list behaviors, attitudes, and values that have changed as a result of your cessation (like op) then you're well on course to extincting the behavior. Which means what you're talking about remains to be seen.

wasn't sure whether to post this on /weed/ or here but i guess it makes more sense here for now. I've been smoking pretty much all day erry day for 4 months and i am planning on taking a break for awhile but i have always in the past been super susceptible to the withdrawal from cannabis. Now im not saying that cannabis does not have one of the most mild and benign withdrawals i just use to fuck around with /opi/s and use to have to deal with dope sickness alot and now when i stop smoking weed i get what seems to be exaggerated withdrawals similar to the ones i used to get years ago. I was thinking if i had CBD supplements from the health food store i could take them for the first few days or so as a way to maybe ease some of the initial discomfort, would that possibly work? the CBD capsules contain like barely any THC and are completely non-psychoactive. Has anyone had any similar experiences?

hey /detox/ i dont want to say i hit rock bottom but it sure feels like it. Today marks the end of a 12 drink a day binge ive been on for a couple months. My girl is fed up, I squashed atleast 3 job opportunities this month, close friends and family are calling me on my bullshit (smelling like booze at 1pm, no call no showing plans, literally being a hermit) Ive had a problem for almost 4 years now and its pretty much stop now or put a shotgun in my mouth.

I dont have insurance but plan on going to therapy once i can land a solid new job.
I quit smoking weed a couple months back and i may be in the wrong fourm to say this but i plan on picking some up. It helps control my anxiety in the less destructive way possible, i basically suffer from the same feelings when sober as i do drunk, the alc just amplifys the depression and anxiety at this level. Thc keeps me in check and i plan on using it until i can seek pro help.

Any other suggestions though, im not to worried about withdrawal symptoms. Im more worried about having a rough day and forgetting why im doing this. What are some day to day things i can do to control the beast? will logging days help? Im currently unemployed and have way to much time and money on my hands. what are some things that have helped you guys. Please dont suggest working out, i already do it changes nothing mentally for me but other ideas are welcome

Stop crossfading. You aren't feeling anxiety. Those are the effects of years of alcohol abuse. They are physical symptoms, not psychological. You can't abate them with drugs, you have to stop drinking.

TLR the book just tells you why sleeping is so great. He actually doesn't really describe WHY we sleep, but he does talk about WHY good sleep is important. It's basically popsci and you can rush through it. Or watch the guy's Joe Rogan talk, he talks about similar stuff. It gave me enough of a reason to lower my caffeine use, and now I actually remember some amount of my dreams and I can tell how therapeutic they are. Some things sleep helps with off the top of my head: emotional resilience, energy (obviously?), learning (very important for students etc), creativity, ability to deal with adversity.
