Hello all I everyone is well. I’ll get right into it.
I’m not an everyday or even every week drinker…but when I’m on holiday oh yes I am..heavy wouldn’t be a strong enough word.
So I just went to Europe and I pulled my normal crap, basically drinking 24/7 anything and everything…so after 2 weeks I come home and have to go back to work. I did my normal tapper method which has always worked in the past using the HMS method (basically a normal tapper). This time is not working well I haven’t slept more then 8 hours total in the past 4 days, and on the night of day 4 I had an extreme terror when I got to sleep for about an hour.. has me really nervous this taper isn’t working. Every muscle was twitching and I’m nervous more is coming.
Yesterday I went to a hotel for a work project and this is where I sit now. My taper went as follows.
Day 1 = 11
Day 2 = 8
Day 3 = 6
Day 4 = 3
Last night day 4 I had that extreme terror. I have a prescription for Xanax .25 and I have about 10 pills left after just taking one. Should I switch to the Xanax? Did I taper to fast? Basically I’m just looking for anyone’s thoughts or ideas. I want avoid professional help if possible due to my position at work.
Thanks and I hope everyone here is doing well :)
