Trying to stop the cravings for drinking alcohol. Is there a medication that will help assist in that. I have heard of Dr.'s using Topomax. Is that accurate?
Sweet, u were right the first tine. campral does help with cravings and there is an injection of a different med that can help also, can't remeber the name tho, dr or pharmacist will know. My group counselor almost ordered people to eat ice cream and candy, she swore that helped cravings. patti
Not that I know of but I have times when under stress that I eat about 5 ice cream cones a day throughout the day - I make them ahead of time and keep them in the freezer - I believe this is related to alcoholism and I know the only thing that helped me in all these years is going to meetings and accepting the fact that I am an alcoholic and cannot have it unless I want to die immediately. I am in a place in my life where I can't really go to meetings for geog. reasons but I use this site for "my meeting" and my ice ream cones and my years of meetings come to my mind when I really need the strenght and it works if ya' work it, like they say. Find the things that work for you. I just have to constantly remember the bad part of drinking because around this time of year you only see the 'fun little cocktail drinking' part of the Holoidays and that is not what alcoholics do or need to think they ever did. Have an ice cream cone on me. Good Luck,
Hi Puma 1: First my qualifications; 40yrs. a drunk , sober date 5/12/89, and my apologies for not posting you sooner. Alcohol is called "the social drink" and "alcoholism is called the social disease"! No matter how much or how hard you try , no matter what drugs you take, ... as long as you crave the friendship, of people who drink alcohol in any form, "YOU WILL CRAVE ALCOHOL"! (period!) I am 21 yrs. sober, and there have still been times... football, baseball etc. games... hunting, fishing , socializing with the opposite sex , when I have had to excuse myself because people are drinking, and if I had hung around , I know the craving would hit me , and I would start drinking again. I don't have to do that any more but I can still get uncomfortable feelings, when alcohol is present... There is ONE drug, however, that will totally assist you to banish your cravings for alcohol.
It is called "ANTABUSE"! Check it out ! ! "ONE drink, and you will become so damn sick, you will want to die"! Two drinks (even just beers!), and your "Pall Bearers" will Plant you"! ! (been there done that?) "PUMA"! tells me you're a guy. To "keep it simple"! Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) is your only answer... Now most drunks will tell you that AA is nothing but a bunch of holy rollers, parading around (in robes?) with hands folded and raised eyes, praying and singing hymns... "Hah"! "Yeah, Right ? ... You really wanna' know what it is. It's all your friends [ ever hear this... "Hey man, where the hell is Pete. He ain't been in the bar or anywhere... "Dunno man, I ain't seen i'm neither? He's an AA member who, with 5 other AA's male/female has gone on a Camping Trip to Alaska ! ! ! Check it out my man, and let me know What you think ? "OK"! Sacosam
