I am a 34yr old working mother, and had a problem with alcohol for the past 2 years. I did not grow up with alcohol and didn't drink until I was 30yrs old. I drank due to stress in my life.

Feeling very unpleasant this morning, however, nausous and dizzy, kind of like a hangover. I have great hopes for this med, as nothing else (AA, Avrt, angry wife) has worked at all. I will post again in a few weeks, hopefully to report that this med ... Show Full Comment
