I've been an alcoholic for more than 15 years. I have a pretty good support system, and I've been trying to utilize services that are available to me but I am still struggling. Long story short I tried to quit last week; going 72 hours. I drank one night, and then went another 72 hours. I think that was a big mistake. The withdrawals were compounded the second time around. The insomnia was very scary, and kept me from getting done what I needed to do. I would be kept from going to sleep from involuntary muscle spasms. I've been back to my same old habits this week, and the withdrawals are still horrible even with drinking every day. I have young children and I don't want to die from this. I'm scared to quit on my own again though at least until I can get these withdrawal symptoms a little more under control. I have medicaid and qualify for outpatient treatment. I just don't know what my next step is. I still have to work and provide for my family.
