Just to be honest with my record:
5/14 - 4 drinks (Saturday - party to attend)
5/15 - 4 drinks (Sunday - BBQ)
5/19 - 2 drinks (Thursday - no reason)
5/20 - 4 drinks (Friday - trip to the mountains)
5/21 - 4 drinks (Saturday - trip to the mountains)
5/24 - 2 drinks (Tuesday - drinks with collegues)
5/25 - 3 drinks (Wednesday - school party - last day)
5/27 - 5 drinks (Friday - drinks with neighbors)
5/28 - 4 drinks (Saturday - party to attend)
5/29 - 7 drinks (BBQ and party to attend)
5/30-6/2 - terrible hangover - my body seriously can't take that amount of alcohol
The end of the school year, all the parties, the sun shining - all so hard for me...
Here is where my brain is right now....trying naltrexone again with 100% compliance this time..but still question why not just stop all together.
I did take it for about 6 months - just 1/4 a pill because any more and I felt terrible even without drinking. You take it 1 hour before drinking - every single time. It's called targeted extinction because it makes the drinking itself not enjoyable. If you aren't getting any of the high, you don't drink as much - at least that is how it worked for me - causing me to drinking less and care about drinking less over time. I was not the hyper, happy, buzzed girl anymore. Instead I was the quiet, out of it, buzzed girl. One time I took the pill and 30 minutes later I felt kind of out of it, grumpy, quiet - not my usual talkative self. My daughter asked, "What's wrong with you? You seem a little quiet and withdrawn." It does make me feel that way even before I drink.
