Hitting that point where you're at that crossroads of continuing doing what you've been doing and hoping for different results...or the jumping off point. I've been there. Lots of false starts, but finally got in the program. Drying out or detox, most important, you can't make a decision while you are still under control of a mind altering substance. Go for it. There isn't any 'cure' yet for being a drug addict or drunk. Total abstinence is really the only solution. That caused ME a lot of fear and regret. It was all unfounded, as the life I found after being honest with myself has been great, and only getting better. Don't close your mind to any possibilities. Miracles happen all the time.
Please be very very careful. Many people struggle with relapse, so you are not alone. And many individuals end up overdosing during a relapse because 1) they get a bad batch 2) their tolerances are still low. Please tread carefully!! It seems like you have not turned to opioids but just alcohol. Look into a support group or treatment for your mental health. I've heard that fighting cravings and triggers for drugs is a huge part of the battle and it all takes place after the detox. The detox isn't the entire recovery.. this is just the next phase of your battle. Best of luck to you and I urge you to seek support & help before it gets worse.
I found this on recovery.org
@carlos.ladner Wow that's amazing! Yeah by the grace of god is the only way he's not in jail for life DAMN
That good you found a way to make it work. I had to do everything on my own after I visited with victims. If I didn't meet them I don't think i would've been able to kick it by myself. Gotta stay motivated for life bro
agree about leaving your circles of friends who still may use. it's too much of an influence and temptation. as for antioxidants it's true, make sure you are getting in proper nutrition. orange juice is a great source of vitamin c BUT the caveat is, the acidity may be harsh on your stomach if it's empty so make sure you eat carbs too
