I drink about a 6 - 8 light beers almost every evening. I want to quite this habit and always start the day saying I am not going to drink tonight, but soon as wheel of fortune comes on I have that first beer. I know I don't have a physical addiciton to alcohol, just mental. I want to get out of the habit. Can I take antabuse the next day after I have drank or do you have to wait a certain amount of time? Thanks

Hello Texasjules. the proper way to take it is on a daily basis. Say, first thing in the morning, with a glass of juice or water. Thats it. And don't drink with it. If you do drink alcohol, your body will go through some severe reactions, and if you've consumned enough of it, could be fatal. best to you.
