Wow! That's quite a drop.

You may get a spike from that, so don't let it throw you off. It happens most of the time, but there are the few exceptions. Be prepared to deploy mindful drinking techniques to counter it should it show up.

Best wishes and keep on posting!

Thanks Joe

funny enough I have some cravings as I write here. Will drop a Nal (btw I will change from Selincro to Naltroxen today) and have a few mindful swigs later on. I will keep you up to date
thanks for your support

nice work! and take it while you have it. the more AF weeks you have, the easier the individual AF days will be. you're learning to live and enjoy being AF and that's huge. good luck!

I was scared that after a 2 weeks AF stint I would go on a bender, didn't happen....
had 4 drinks on Tuesday and one on Wednesday, looking good

I am happy

Awesome, Colorblind!

The timing on that sounds rather like Paul Turner's method of detox, then reintroduction to alcohol with Naltrexone per TSM.

Thanks Joe

That was my old pattern, 1-2 weeks AF and than a bender. Now I take Nal before drinking and for a first time was able to break it.Funnily I do now drink more frequently as opposed to before TSM though in limited doses. My main objective is not to get blind drunk when I drink and I haven't been drunk in 4 weeks....huge success
thanks for your support

keep it up! I can no longer get blind drunk thanks to Nal, something I'd never thought I'd be able to say.
