After drinking for a few weeks and needing to stop so I could go out in the world – I had to go through about a 5 day withdrawl, lack of sleep, no sleep at all the first 2 or 3 days. Then there is the feeling of my nerves being on fire, like a buzz, electric current running through my body, just awful, finally falling asleep for an hour or two and waking up in a cold sweat, while dressed in a sweat shirt and sweat pants, being totally cold and wet, an hour later I am so hot I have to strip down to a tee shirt and shorts. Then chain smoking, watching TV, anything to put my mind somewhere for a while, the hours would creep by, tick – tock, ever so slowly. There was no way to eat, but trying to put something down, soup, scrambled eggs, toast, but eating just brought on the “electric buzz” in my entire body, so much fun. Then sweating and cold, hot flashes, racing thoughts, always negative, the whole world knew what a bad person I was, but then I would tell myself, no one knows or even cares, get over it.
Then ever so slowy as the days tick by the symptoms get less and less, maybe on the 4th or 5th day I can make it out to buy cigarettes, or soda, pepsi, something with suger in it. God I dont miss having to Detox myself from booze. – I went through that about 100 times till I finally just was too afraid to take a drink because I knew where it would eventally lead. Oh and lets not forget about the mental part of the experience, the depression, the total anxiety, and the complete paranoia, just a few of the mind f….. that come with detox. I would not drink today for all the tea in China, dont want to go through that s…. again. – just a commentary on detoxing from an Alcoholic binge. Anyone care to compare notes?
