At 50, I've been drinking for 35 years and struggling with it for the last 13. AA, rehab, Smart Recovery, Buddhism, addiction therapy--I've tried it all and while all of the above have helped me become a happier person, even after 8 or 9 months sober my brain still lit up when I was around alcohol.

Comment:
Have no desire to drink, however I feel very funky. I have a slight headache and feel like I would when hungover. Took 50mg. Going to reduce dosage to see if this will eliminate the grogginess. Want to continue,I think the benefits will outweigh the negatives.
