>>7230925 Just in my head but I don't know why. Usually three a day but I had the pleasure of four yesterday. You know they're good when you go wipe and the paper is completely clean. Can life get any better?
>>7230914 Been sober since Nov. 10th. It's gotten much easier now. I only really think about alcohol maybe once or twice a week now, and if I just bear with it for about 10-20 minutes, the feelings go away. I'm going to make it this time. Yay.
>>7230915 And on the above note, I fap like fucking crazy now. My sex drive is through the roof since I quit drinking. I'm in a long term relationship, and even though we have sex at least every other day if not every day, I still fap at least twice or three times a day. I can't even think about having sex with my girlfriend without getting a boner and having to rub one out. On the other hand, she's loving it. Apparently the alcohol was preventing me from becoming a sex addict, lol.
>>7231035 if you frequently binge drink, you should get prescribed naltrexone from your doctor. it is super effective in reducing binge drinking. don't listen to that aa b.s.-- you complusively want to drink not because you're bad, it is because your brain is messed up and craves opiods any way it can get them. naltrexone (and other medications) fix this. good luck. (if your doctor won't prescribe you the medicine you need, find one that will).
I quit beer and cigarettes cold turkey, previously I was having 6-10 beers a night 7 days a week for the last 5 years and around a pack of smokes a day...I really fucking want some of both, having trouble sleeping at night and am irritable, but im determined...how are you anons holding up?
>>7230935 Same happened to me when I cut my drinking back from my undergrad days, all boners all the time. Still happening, too. I don't understand how I can generate enough semen to still be able to plaster my fiancee after fapping 3-4 times during the day.
>>7231803 it isn't. however, the mechanism of action is that alcohol causes you to release dopamine. people with alcohol use disorders are addicted not to alcohol but instead to the dopamine. drugs like naltrexone interfere with with the opioid receptors in your brain and so continuing to drink past a couple doesn't really give you much effect. it isn't widely prescribed because it doesn't stop people from drinking, it only stops them from binge drinking. (and it is also effective for other drugs.)
aa people won't talk about it, becuase they think that "battling" alcohol is an unwinable endless battle against a "mystifying opponent."
people who take naltrexone usually do need therapy-- for example, some people want to get drunk so bad that they'll stop taking their medicine. but doctors who won't prescribe it are like essentially telling really sick people to "tough it out."
>>7230914 5 days no alcohol, 5 days no tobacco, 5 days no weed, 4 days no fapping, 3 days no sex. The sex thing is just because girlies with her parents but yeah.....the no drug thing feels good. I'm kind of ancy and snippy but i know it's for the best. This is after at least 250 consecutive days of having at least 1 drink or 1 smoke. >Feelsweirdtobesoberman
Haven't smoked or had a drink in 2 days, difficulty sleeping, it's 5 AM here and I can't wait for the shops to open so I could get a pack of smokes, I keep my liquor shelf stacked with empty whiskey bottles just so I would feel like I don't need to buy more, it's weird but it helps. Also pissed off everybody after new years and kept drinking non stop for days... Going to turn on my phone later and deal with the shitstorm.
>>7233338 If you didn't stay drunk days in a row, you should be fine if you taper off. It shouldn't be too difficult and you shouldn't have to go too slowly either - I like to halve mine every day when I can. I went through a period though where I drank so much for so long, at the end I stayed drunk for several days in a row, stopping only when I passed out. I almost couldn't drink enough to keep the shakes at bay. I haven't been that bad since and I'm glad. Now alcohol is just for social occasions, but I still find I have to taper off sometimes after getting heavily drunk on a night out, even if it's the first time in a couple of weeks.
On the other hand, my dad has been a heavy alcoholic for at least 15 years now and has quit cold turkey several times.
>>7230914 I've been sober since new years eve, it's been pretty easy. But I'm one of those drunks who go through long periods of binge drinking and then short periods of sobriety. I'm planning on not drinking all january and I think I'm gonna make that okay, but if I know myself right my drinking isn't gonna be any more controlled when I start again.
I'm not starting any "resolutions" until the NFL season has finished. I know that the temptation of going to drink with the bros will be too much. Starting Feb. 9th, it's back to pure sobriety and the diet I was doing so well on this summer.
I'm essentially coming off of 10 years of (prescribed) benzo addiction. I had a doc that just continued to up my dosage and I wasn't gonna tell her to stop. She retired a couple of months ago and instead of finding a new pill factory Doctor I just decided to taper off. It's been about 3 months I think.
I have a wife and 2 kids and my wife is now getting to know the actual me. It's kinda weird. I've been avoiding any sort of affection but I think that's because of the withdrawal symptoms, which are getting much better. She had no idea just how addicted to the pills I was. Sorry for rambling.
had my last beers on new years eve just before midnight. at one point i didnt drink for 9 yrs been drinking craft beer for the past 4 getting old so i wanna take some time off and recharge for spring. also to broke to get anything good for awhile.
>>7234296 Different anon but hey anon drink water and stay alive-- then, when you are up to it, seek medical treatment for your binge drinking. check the radiolab (wync public radio) episode called "the fix" -- there is a medicine you can take.
