  5. How to lessen alcohol withdrawal?
Asked: 2018-05-22 10:21:51
I’m getting ready to go to boot camp. The army is my lifelong dream—my dad and my dad’s dad were officers. My problem is with booze. I drank every day with my buddies, and then it started just being me. Now I have a problem and about two weeks to make it through withdrawals. How can I get through this without being a total mess?

Just make sure that you’re committed to getting help and stopping. It sounds like you have a problem, and you need to get help. You’re better off talking to a doctor about how to get through it. Make sure that you’re not going to pass out or have a seizure and have someone check on you a lot. Drink enough water and eat when you can, and when you make it through the worst of it after about four days, start trying to exercise and help clear it out of your system.

Good for you, and I can appreciate your wanting to serve your country. Alcohol withdrawals can get ugly, and they can do some serious damage. Hydrate with powerade, buy vitamins, and ask your doctor about detox. You may have to go into the hospital for a few days. Just don’t do it by yourself, and remember how nasty it was the next tie you feel like drinking! Good luck!
