I've been drinking heavily for 3 years, each day. After a liver twinge and high fever (having a family history of Liver cancer) I was quite scared.
So: I've decided to try to get sober.
Considered going cold turkey, but the shakes got a bit too much, and 24 hours in I succumbed to ONE (and only one!) drink. It was hard to leave it there, but I need to stop. Nearly 48 hours in, my symptoms of withdrawal are intermittent from just a bit feverish to shakes and palpitations. I'm just trying to hold out for the 96h mark so I can be a bit more confident I'll not suffer serious seizures..
Do you think staying within the guidelines for drinking for a couple of weeks in an attempt to ween off would be okay? Or best just go cold ASAP?
I will beat this.
