Dealing with alcoholism has been a battle for me quiet some time. I finally got setup with a doctor with whom I met earlier this week and admitted to him that I want to stop drinking but I definitely need some outside help. I scheduled an appointment with an outpatient rehab center that I will meet with on a week from Tuesday. In the mean time, my doc prescribed Ativan and Campral which I just started taking.
One of my biggest obstacles in stopping are some pretty strong cravings that I get. If I try to fight them I get this feelings of edginess, aggravation, and depressions which makes it harder to not cave in. Are there any strategies that anyone can share with me in fighting this? It seems pretty tough being pretty much in trying to begin recovery. And honestly, does it get easier as time goes on? I really appreciate any input
