... like to have a drink today but can wait. Is today too early? I'm 115 lbs, 5'5 and 25 years old. I've been on it before and drank after 3 days, but was only on it for a week prior. At that point my face just got very red.
Hi Hilary, I'm an alcoholic also but sober for more than three years now. I have heard anecdotal evidence of severe reactions up to and beyond 2 weeks following discontinuation after extended use.
You could try to play crash test dummy on yourself but I wouldn't take the chance personally.
Good luck, alcoholism, treated young, stands a good chance of not being part of ruining your life. It has been outrageously successful in contributing to me wasting most of my adult life to it, in part.
