Hi there

I had a long natural dry spell of 7 weeks after which I went for 4 binges, twice I didn't have Nal on me and the other two times I took it. Although I had enough after 3 beers I pushed through the NAL on the look for the kick. I am pretty worried that I slide back where I came from, I guess the early success made me complacent.
thanks for listening
CB

Hi, colorblind. I'm of the mind you should reset your start date. Two binges without NAL means a complete reintroduction of the endorphins to your brain. I don't say this to spank you, but rather to prevent discouragement in the future. You absolutely cannot skip NAL doses if you want this to work. Good luck.

Colorblind -

Let's move the conversation over here, as it's got more of your history in it, like this important part about skipping the Nal.

So, Bardo nailed it with his comment. If you drink off the Nal, you reset yourself back to the way your brain was before, especially since you don't drink that often anymore.

Good deal.

So, you mentioned that when you drink you knock it back pretty quickly. That's a disadvantage as it's going to overpower the conscious part of your brain and you need that part to help you on your quest. If you were to slow that down to 4 hours, how would you do it?

One thing that I was able to do was to pour a drink, take a sip and then walk away from it. I'd get up to some little chore or activity for 15 mintues or so, then see if I wanted another sip. If I did, I'd go back and get a sip and repeat the process. I basically stopped keeping my drink by me, within reach or even within sight. If you think about it, when you quit drinking you're going to be doing something else, so also perhaps ponder what that would look like for you.

How long have you been taking the Celexa? Looking back, did you notice any difference in your drinking after that? More, less, no change?
