  1. Whats the time frame on that Steve? Second thoughts, why are we all awake lol
  2. Did you get much snow in Southend Jack? Had a good downpour in Pitsea earlier, started to settle and there's still a bit left on the cars, this morning could be treacherous! Hopefully more to come over the next few days but not looked yet
  3. Finally found a doctor at CDAS who will put me on quetiapine and naltrexone, got to give it 24hrs to get the drink out my system and 2 days to rationalise my mood before I see them to be breathalysed again, then get a prescription, then its cold turkey time again when I start the new meds 😕

      By the sounds of it EE, I think an inpatient detox is the best course of action for you.  It's what I had, and they look after you and keep an eye on your withdrawals and change medication accordingly.  It's a much safer environment than doing it at home on your own and they kept me in for 10 days, which is the amount of time it took for me to recover from the physical side of withdrawals.  They also put me on a medicine called 'Campral' which can help with cravings etc.  I took that for a year afterwards and I really do think it helped with the cravings and breaking the habit of drinking.  I still get cravings for a drink - this Christmas was probably my toughest, but the habit of daily drinking was broken by then, plus I don't think I will ever forget how ill, both physically and mentally I was through drinking that I really don't want to go through it again.  You can do it EE, but you must be in the right frame of mind to do it, and to do it for yourself and no one else.  Speak to your doctor or key worker about being put on the waiting list for inpatient detox.  Good luck x

      I have been on campral, acamprosate? in the past, but was drinking too heavily at the time for it to do any good. I've also had a supervised detox too, which was on the 8th november, aided by librium for 9 days but relapsed shortly after. Can't do another until at least June time due to the effects on the body, so stuck at the moment with trying to cut down, still going to my group sessions and now been put into a relatives group for additional support with the family. If I can get my drinking to a very low level the doctor at the addiction center is willing to put me onto naltrexone. Today's session at the GP with family wasn't much help, they refused to put me onto any kind of sedative to help me reduce, which was advised by the key worker, instead they are getting me off of current medication and going to try and find an alternative, but I need to be weened off of the current medication first.

      Got nowhere with the doctors, refused to put me on any medication, can't do another detox as last one was in October, have to wait until June, hospital wouldn't do a thing, been referred to the top doctor at the local surgery now. Was in A&E for nearly 15 hours lol. Tried cold turkey hadn't drank from 3pm Friday until last night but the withdrawal got too much, violent shakes, confusion and memory loss, had a friend come over to look after me and ended up going back to the bottle. Got to try again, need to find something to make it easier and try to cut down slowly again 😕 

  6. That reminds me, we had some nice salmon bombs last year for Xmas starter, Boxing day starter was prawn cocktail
  7. Do we live in the same country lol? This is the sky here right now
  8. Afternoon Any cold drizzle there today? It's overcast, cold and damp here, with continuous drizzle, no ice in it this time!
  9. The area I live with my mum is very tidy, apart from the odd plastic bottle on the street and crisp packets flying around, where I live with my dad is the total opposite, as it's a council estate, there's often beer cans, coke cans laying about in the alley ways, trolleys dumped in random places, which is a daily nuisance, one seems to pop up every day, if it's not that then it's sofa's and mattresses left in the parking area which the council aren't paid to clear up, so they just get left until someone reports fly tipping. There was a community practice in place last year to tidy up the area but it hasn't seemed to have done much good, I think they have given up.
  10. Did you know that today has been the wettest, coldest, warmest, windiest and sunniest day of the year so far!‬
  11. @lassie23 You doubled in age within 5 years Must be all that goat chasing
  12. Maybe every netweather member should buy a dodgy old freezer so we can all meet up somewhere and empty the snow each year there's a mild winter lol
  13. Already got a bit of snow here, in the freezer anyway! Needs defrosting lol
  14. Forgot to post this in time... Britain's Wildest Weather 2018 will be on Channel 4+1 starting at 8:30pm and presented by Liam Dutton, available on demand shortly after

  16. You can get small GPS collar trackers for that, comes with an app for your phone too
  17. Nothing here yet, not sure what to expect at only 133ft, but had a shower of ice pellets at one point yesterday, at least it wasn't cold rain! In a mad rush clearing out an old shed this morning with a roof that is about to collapse, not sure what I'm wishing for, heavy rain and the floor will get soaked today, any heavy lying snowfall later on in the season and the whole roof will be on the floor
  18. I haven't got NW Extra at the minute so maybe someone with it can dig out the DP's
  19. Been trying to find out where that smell has been coming from for hours now, has to be this thread remember to wipe guys
  20. I'll be at my aunts as usual with a traditional turkey roast on the big day, leftover turkey on boxing day with ham, mash and more pigs in blankets, pile on the mustard!! Oh and non alcoholic beer as directed by my aunt At least I won't be alone with that one this year as my cousin is pregnant again Think I would prefer to drink pepsi all night rather than becks blue
