Congrats on your sobriety.

Not sure if you know this already, but the founder of Alcoholics Anonymous Bill Wilson, believed Niacin megadosing was an optimal treatment for alcoholism. TPTB forced him to remove Niacin as part of the treatment in Alcoholics Anonymous and instead promote God. They don't want people knowing that vitamins can treat things.

You refreshed a memory.. Niacin ( Vitamin B3 )


Vitamin B3, or Niacin, is an essential vitamin required for processing fat in the body, lowering cholesterol levels, and regulating blood sugar levels. A deficiency of niacin leads to pellagra, a condition characterized by diarrhea, dermatitis, dementia, inflammation of the mouth, amnesia, delirium, and if left untreated, death. Even a slight deficiency of niacin can lead to irritability, poor concentration, anxiety, fatigue, restlessness, apathy, and depression. Niacin, Vitamin B3, is a water soluble vitamin that is well regulated by the body, thus overdose is rare, and only occurs when niacin is taken in the form of supplements. An overdose of niacin is seen in the form of skin rashes (flush), dry skin, various digestive maladies. A long term overdose can lead to liver damage, elevated blood sugar levels and type II diabetes, as well as increased risk of birth defects. The current DV for Niacin (Vitamin B3) is 20mg. Below are the top 10 foods highest in vitamin B3

I remembered that as well and am off to get some Marmite in a bit, I love that stuff and knowing it is good for you makes it all the better.

I also remember some international think tank suggesting that we ship tonnes of Marmite to the middle east to help improve the tension and reduce the violence?

Found it.

Wow...I had no idea that the fabulous people behind nonspecific were even working on a sober version!

Kudos man. Seriously. Now, you keep it up, you hear? Have a cup of tea instead. I also recommend taking up an instrument if you have not already done so. It keeps ones mind off other pursuits...might be wise to wait until you have motor function first though!

Seriously though...kudos.

Cheers buddy, I have quit the caffeine as well as apparently it does not help quitting and have switched to peppermint and camomile teas.

As to music I have played guitar, bass and drums for years but have not had a guitar for ages, A mate of mine who now lives in Germany came back and left me his UK gigging guitar, amp and Mic and I am getting a looper pedal so I can go back to having a hobby in the evenings other than drunkenness.

Also someone gave me Risk the lord of the rings edition and I plan to destroy Mrsnonspecific on the battle field of an evening. We also keep meaning to try backgammon so a busy evening should help with the urges.

So send Marmite, of all things, to a population that is already 'irritable an belligerent' ?

You'd have to be a genius to think that would work...

(and I like Marmite. Not oblivious to the tastes of others, though).

You deserve all the praise in the world for making it through the withdrawal. I saw my dad go through it several times before he gave it up for good... it took him quite a while to remember that he was a good person each time too. Do your best to avoid giving in to temptation. Remember that there is no such thing as just one or just one night... every time you're tempted tell yourself those two things and then remember the days of withdrawal. Remember too that if you do slip, you can recover again.

You got this if you allow yourself faith and forgiveness.

Congratulations on kicking a demons ass.

Have you heard of HALT ?

If you're tempted to take a drink ask yourself if you're:

Hungry... Angry...Lonely...Tired

and sort out whichever of those issues is bothering you.

One of the oddest things I am coming to terms with is how ill I look?

I had a big silly beard and always wear a hat and I think I know that part of the reason was to try and hide how I actually looked.

Alcohol causes you to let yourself go in many ways but you do not seem to notice it yourself.

I am a 39 year old man and am about 5 foot ten and a half and have just weighed myself and came in at 8 stone 11 fully clothed, that cannot be good.

Also my skin is awful, I have started taking st johns wort to try and help with the depression and anxiety and am off to google some good foods to get detox'd fatter and healthier!

Thanks for the welcome but it may take me a while to become accustomed to your ways, I started drinking every day at the age of 15 and aside from a few times I was in hospital pumped full of drugs I have always been that way.

It's a funny old place but I think I am going to like it.

I'm so glad you're through the withdrawals safely.

Keep on keepin' on brother.
