In this case maybe you should have some valium on hand to help with the withdrawals? It can be a roller coaster ride and this will help with the anxiety and cravings.
Great advice einstein.. pills

right
some proper advice from an actual substance abuse counsellor

the DTs arent what to actually worry about
its the associated withdrawal fits that can cause brain damage and or death
its not a great idea to stop completely
weaning off is better and safer
i work at detox centres that you can be referred to by a hospital or GP
the drug that helps with fits is librium
but small amounts of alcohol will help too
the first 48 hrs are hell
cravings can last for months
good luck

In an ideal world I would hope so. Don't know the severity of his addiction but if it is bad he won't want to exercise before he has detoxed. That is the danger zone and the time he needs to be very careful.

get professional help and a group who will give you a sponsor who will help

your comment about AA being no good as you don't want to be surrounded by junkies and bums shows you are already in denial as like it or not at those levels of vodka daily you are both and need the help of those who have been there.

I am tired of being held hostage by alcohol. I just took my last drink. I needed to make a thread to hold myself accountable. Also because Getbig knows more about my alcoholism, than my family does.

Starting from 7:00 A.m. eastern time, I will log my trials with staying clean.

I am scared. I have heard of the horror stories of withdrawls.

If I stop posting in this thread, I am either in the hospital, or I am dead.

I will give you guys updates to how I am feeling. I will win, unless my body betrays me.

Easy to say when you are hung over.

Maybe tomorrow too.

But day 4 is sure as shit going to look a lot different.

Get on disulfiram ASAP.

Find things to keep you occupied.   Being idle is an opportunity to drink.

Good advices. I was going to suggest this.  Hes going to like how he feels off the booze.  Had a buddy cut back his drinking and he lost 6 pounds of bloat within a week.

Supervised Rehab...


The only way to go with alcohol addiction.



Ask me how I know? No, it wasn't me. It's a part of my life.



Trusting eachother on this board is not something you see people here ever do.


Trust me. If you REALLY want to quit... you will enroll yourself into a rehab facility and probably deal with A.A for the rest of your life.


I feel very, very sorry for people that develop alcohol and addiction problems. It is in our nature. It's what we do.


Of all the really tough ones to kick, alcohol is a above Heroin.


It will be a lifetime venture. It's always gonna be around you. You will need some kind of support, the kind of support that far surpasses what Getbig could even DREAM of giving.



I know we been fuckin' with eachother lately, but I wish Good Fortune to you my friend. You can do it. So, do it.

Alcohol is one of the few drugs that can kill you when withdrawing from it.  Seek help you stubborn alcoholic moron.  Go to a detox where they manage your withdrawals properly, at the very least, get to a meeting and grab a hold of some members with plenty of sobriety under their belt.  You are doomed to fail on your own. Ignore Cleanest Natural, the guy is a fucking moron who knows little about the seriousness of alcohol withdrawls when attempted by serious alcoholics.  Using valium is standard procedure with alcohol withdrawal.

If you aren't currently drinking a 5th of vodka a day, quitting cold turkey isn't going to kill you. Not even close. you may get some night sweats the 1st week, but that's nothing. if you are ready to quit, just quit. You don't need meetings, a hobby, get big, or Ellen & Oprah. You just need to be honest with yourself. It's only a liquid. Just look at it that way. It's a liquid. You are a grown man, no liquid will ever rule your life again. People will say it's not that easy, but it is. Just tell the liquid to fuck off.

You can do it. You just have to want to. When you get the urge to drink, just look in the mirror & say no. Fuck that liquid...

Do it.

It depends. During the work week? Probably 350-500 ml.  

Weekends? I can do 750 ml in a day easy. Sometimes more.

This has been going on for 2 1/2 to 3 years straight. Drinking everyday is a problem.

750 ml in a day is pretty weak for a 270lbs man who drinks every day bro.
I rarely drink and can easily consume a 70cl vodka bottle in a typical saturday night.

I wish you luck. That said, if/when you succeed, don't be one of those people who preaches about the evils of alcohol, just because you personally couldn't handle it. If you want to quit it, you will.

You're foolish to ever touch the stuff in the first place.  Besides the ill health effects, think of all the money you would have saved by not drinking.

You were also the guy who couldn't workout unless you took a stimulant beforehand.  You have an addictive personality and you'll never quit on your own because you're too weak minded.
