stopping alcohol addicts

When you really start drinking, you will find that it is really difficult to overcome physical and psychological dependence.
how should I do it? I hope this article can give you effective advice.
The third stage: safety withdrawal
Some people can stop drinking on their own, while others, in order to pass the withdrawal response safely and comfortably, may require medical supervision and intervention from a psychiatrist. The choice of which option is most appropriate depends on your alcohol consumption, the duration of the alcohol problem, and your health.
After frequent and heavy drinking, the human body will become dependent on alcohol. If you don't drink suddenly, your body will react strongly. Medically, this is called "alcohol withdrawal syndrome."
The symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome can be light or heavy, including:
headache
Tremor, hand shake
Sweating
Nausea or vomiting
Anxious, meditation can't
Stomach cramps, diarrhea
I can't sleep well, my concentration can't concentrate
Heart rate and blood pressure
Usually, within a few hours of stopping drinking, the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal begin to appear; after a day or two, the severity of the symptoms peaks and gradually improves within five days.
However, for some alcoholics, the withdrawal response is not only as difficult as a few days, it may have a human life.
If you have the following withdrawal symptoms, you need to call 120 immediately or go to the emergency department:
Severe vomiting
Confusion and disorientation
fever
Illusion
Emotional excitement
Seizure-like symptoms
If the above symptoms occur, the alcohol drinker may be experiencing "alcohol withdrawal sputum", which is a very serious withdrawal response. This rare emergency can upset the brain's regulation of blood circulation and breathing, which can easily lead to death.
Therefore, you must go to the hospital as soon as possible.
For some long-term severe alcoholics, taking medication under the supervision of a doctor may be a safe and appropriate way to stop. This stage of treatment can be in the outpatient or inpatient department. Alcoholics can follow the doctor's advice and prevent complications and relieve withdrawal symptoms under medical supervision.
For more information, you can consult a psychiatrist.


The fourth stage: looking for the true meaning of life.


Although abstaining from alcohol dependence is an important first step, it is only the beginning of abstinence.

Further treatment or psychotherapy (consultation) in the rehabilitation department can lead you to a path of gradual recovery, but in order to persist in long-term non-drinking, you need a new and meaningful life, so that drinking no longer has a place.


Here are five ways to help you build a lifestyle that is far from alcohol:


(1) Take good care of yourself. In order to avoid mood swings and fight against the desire for alcohol, you need to have a balanced diet and adequate sleep when you stop drinking. Exercise is also critical, it relieves stress and stimulates positive energy.


(2) Consolidate the social support system.

 Leave someone who can bring you positive energy and correct your pessimism. The more you manage your relationships, the more you will lose after you re-drink, which will help you stay motivated during your recovery.

(3)
Explore new hobbies.


 Look for new hobbies, volunteers, or jobs that are full of meaning and purpose. If you do something that makes you feel satisfied, the attraction of drinking will become smaller.

(4)
Adhere to treatment.

 If you join a group like the Anonymous Alcohol Support Group (AA), or accept addiction treatment, and regularly go to the psychiatric clinic to take medicine and take regular medication, then you are more likely to succeed in abstinence.


(5) Respond to stress in a healthy way.

Alcohol abuse is often used as a way to relieve stress, in fact it is just an escape. To get rid of alcohol dependence, you need to manage and cope with stress in a healthier way. Relaxation training such as exercise, meditation, breathing exercises, etc. are all good choices.

The fifth stage: cleverly thirst


In the first half of the year to limit alcohol consumption or alcohol withdrawal, the desire of alcoholics for alcohol may be particularly strong.


Good alcohol treatment can help the alcoholics prepare for these challenges and develop new coping strategies. Ultimately, relying on alcohol can overcome nervousness, overcome the desire for wine, and reject social situations in a proper way. Hand over the wine glass.


1. Avoid reminders of "drinking"


In fact, before we have to face up to the hunger, we can avoid the various "reminders" that provoke locusts.


Certain people, occasions or activities may lead to a thirst for wine, and it is necessary for abstainers to avoid them as much as possible.


This may mean that abstainers have to make major changes to their social life, such as having to use their old friends to develop new hobbies, or even give up those friends and stop dealing with them.


In addition, in social situations where you need to drink alcohol, you should learn to say "no".


No matter how hard you try to insist on not drinking, there may be occasions when you have to face the wine glasses handed over. You need to be prepared for such an occasion in advance, and think about how to say "no, thank you" in a firm and polite manner.



2. Control the thirst for alcohol


If the thirst for alcohol is tormenting you again, try the following strategies:


(1) Chatting with trusted people for a day


A companion such as a drinker who is with you, support your family members or friends, or religious members you believe in.

(2) Distract your attention


Before you want to feel the past, you can go for a walk, listen to music, even a general cleaning, or run a leg for someone. In short, find something to keep yourself busy.


(3) Reasons to remind yourself not to drin

k
When people are eager to drink, they often only read the benefits of drinking and forget their negative effects. At this time, be sure to remind yourself that drinking does not really make people feel better, it is just a way to escape.


(4) Control your cravings


Don't fight the desire for wine, accept it, and harness it. Think of your desire for wine as a wave of waves, flying and coming. Just like surfing, you don't need to stand in front of it to try to block, judge or ignore it, but you can stand on a skateboard and bravely sprint along it. After the "Big Wave", you will find that it retreats much faster than you think.


Driving the thirst of the trilogy


The purpose of this exercise is not to let the thirst disappear, but to experience a new way of craving. Continuous practice can make the drinker more familiar with his hunger, so that he can learn more about how to control it and let it leave the body naturally.


1. Carefully check the experience of craving


Sitting in a comfortable chair with your feet flat on the floor and your hands in a comfortable position
Take a few deep breaths and focus on your body.


Let your attention wander freely in your body, and find out where the "craving" is hidden.


Carefully experience what the body part of the thirst is.


Carefully identify which body part of each thirst is in the body, describe them, for example: "My cravings are in my mouth, in my nose, and in my stomach."


2. Focus on the feeling of a single part
Pay attention to the exact feelings of the individual body parts where you are craving, for example:
Do you think it is burning or cold?
Do you feel stinging or numbness?
Is the muscle tense or relaxed?
What is the range of affected parts?
Carefully describe your feelings and pay attention to the changes.
For example: "My mouth feels dry and hot, my lips and tongue feel stiff. I have been swallowing water. When exhaling, I seem to smell the wine and feel the tingling of my tongue."


3. Repeatedly feel the thirst of all parts of the body
For most people, cravings come quickly, go quickly, and pass in a matter of minutes.
Alcoholics need to repeatedly feel the experience of the body part with a sense of craving in the senses, and how it changes over time.
Continue to focus on "feeling" itself until the thirst is completely gone.
