I been struggling with alcohol for years now…once i had to goto ER room because my enzymes were elevated. After that incident i go into withdrawal fight through it,then get sober again. The cycle continued until yesterday when i hit my rock botom. I had some food on friday afternoon and friday had 5 6 drinks. I woke up sat with hangover . I went to a friends place and drank what he had left.then went to another friends place drank from ter also. Then i bought a pint bottle and finished it. All these without having any food at all. Then i came to my house and i felt someting is going on. I felt dizzy and told my wife i need to lie down. The next thing i know is i am in a ambulance my wife crying beside me. Drip hooked in to my hands. The emergency physicial askinm me qns and am struggling to answer. Then i passed out. And woke up in an er room. Wife and friends near me. MRA scan, ECG beep beep sound of machines inte room. I was diagnosed with alcohol poisoning…luckly i made it through…i an bak home now.i ws going tru withdrawal all day…and just now i had some solid food after 2 days. I pray to good this dosnt happn to anyone at all. Im starting over today DAY 1…hopefully i can get some sleep tonight with unisom…and gt bak to normal life from tomm
Damn that sucks I hope you get better. That is a wake up call too stop drinking all together. I’m done now and reset my clock. No more
Yikes that’s brutal! Talk about motivation to get better! Imagine never having to go through that or worry about that ever again!
Have you made a plan for what you’re going to do to stay sober this time?
Get to an AA meeting in your area asap Brother, save your life. It works. Do it please
You sound just like the type of drinker that we like to have in AA. I was a low bottom alcoholic/addict. It’s given me plenty of room to grow
Scary stuff. Glad your wife knew something was up after you passed out and knew to call for help! I imagine drinking the first time after a relapse puts you at high risk for situations like this.
All those times once i remain sober for a while i feel now i can control it…beofe i realize i will fall into the cycle…now i have to admit i cant control and stick on to it
Oh man…hope ur ok now
I am not a very social person…so AA may not work for me
No offense, but your drinking isn’t working for you. It’s killing you. Might be time to buck up and try something new.
You have no choice Brother, too many people love you…
You can sit and listen your first few times, and leave whenever you want, but I recommend at least trying a few different meetings. They understand that not everyone is very social.
Awesome …happy 4 u
Thank you…i. will give it a try
That’s so scary. I’m glad you’re okay.
Maybe you should stop and try to get to a meeting .life or death passed the grave yard last week got a few friends there who decided to go try again wish you well
Thank you all for the support!!! I slept like a baby last nigh. feeling clean, fresh and thank ful today. I am back to work . This is a great community and you guys are just awesome !!
Hold onto that feeling and dont let go. This disease wants us dead and it will try anyway it can to get us. Keep that positive beacon of light inside you shining and the darkness will stay away.
