Hanging in there.  I am not sure how this web site works so I am glad I got the email from you.  I unfortunately was not told to not drink a week before the injection, however, I still have my drinks but in a definite  less amount.  Also, I was on suboxone for narc abuse and found that the shot has actually prevented me from having to take the suboxone.  I do no get a buzz from the booze (as we all try to test things out) but I do drink less.  I am on Prestique and hope that helps for the depression as I have had serious reactions to other antidepressants.  I do not go to AA or NA as I find it depressing.  I try to keep calm and not take my issues out on others.  If AA helps, then you should go.  With the shot, I puked for 5 days straight and could keep nothing down but yourgurt.  KIT

Just a quick note to say hi! I also am on wellbutrin 300mg.  i was on Pristiq and didn't realize it wasn't helping me a bit.  What a difference this makes.  Anxiety is in check which is great.  I take an antabuse a day.  No side affects that i am aware of.  My psych doc tells me if i drink it could kill me or in the least make me deathly ill, so that is maybe in the back of my mind and helping.  He told me and she the one before in the hospital, if you are going to drink don't take the antabuse for 3 days!  Well, i never was a planner on drinking. Spontaneity is my deal.  So i have not wanted to plan it out 3 days out.  But, the best thing is i do not have the desire.  I am truly thankful and blessed, i just didn't know at one point if i would be able to do this. Keep me posted. TJack

Just a quick note to say hi!  I just read your post and you did get lots of good advice.  I just wanted to say i have been there and done that sneaky drinking thing and didn't fool my hubby one bit. I tried the campral and naltrexone. Neither one curbed my cravings.  I went in hosp. for detox for 1 week.  saw a shrink everyday. she changed my anti depressant and put me on antabuse.  I have not wanted a drink in two mos. now.  Alot of it is my anti depressant and some may be the knowledge that if i drink with anabuse it could kill me.  I feel great and you can too and be sober as well. hang in.

Just a quick note to say hi!

I had my first shot on Monday this past.  I was under the impression that there would be no withdrawal or DTs.  I was given xanax for the symptoms, but was having such a hard time, I went out and bought a bottle.  I feel like a failure.  I too hide it from my boyfriend.  I hide the bottles and throw the receipts away.  I hate the lying and after being clean of pain pills for 5 years, I am ashamed to admit that I turned to another source of  "relief".  I love my BF more than the world and this drinking is making our relationship on edge.  I hurt the ones I love and I hate it!
