    If you are struggling with alcoholism or drinking too much, AND YOU ARE 100% COMMITTED to stop drinking, this is the best thing that has ever been added to my treatment plan.

If you are having withdrawal symptoms see yo ... Show Full Comment

    I tried to drink my life away..finally committed to sobriety. After a week in a detox center my doctor started me on Antabuse and antidepressants. Took a couple of weeks for everything to settle in my system. It still makes me a little tired but I love life now... 928 days later �️ Go to meetings, get a sponsor and you can do it, One day at a time. I'm so blessed!
