Almost 30 days since last drink – still not feeling good – soberrecovery alcoholism drug dry itchy patches on skin addiction help and information

I’ve had a lot of vague health issues that I’ve always associated with drinking. First is anxiety. Whenever I would drink too much, I would suffer from extreme anxiety the next few days. It was so bad I could barely drive or leave dry itchy patches on skin the house. I also suffer from chronic seborrihic dermatitis I.E. Flaky patches in my hair and sometimes other areas of dry itchy patches on skin my body like firearms and around my lips.

I had had hoped that by day 30 off of dry itchy patches on skin both of these substances I would be feeling better. The anxiety especially during driving, is gone and I am thankful for that. However, I am feeling kinda “blah”, lethargic, not excited about anything, lacking motivation, feeling depressed, intensely introspective and feeling just crappy in general. During drinking I would rarely get nausea or throw up, but I would always have transient abdominal pains and bloating dry itchy patches on skin which I figured would go away with drinking. While the bloating has gone away, I still feel transient abdominal pain all through my abdomen dry itchy patches on skin sometimes in one area sometimes in others. It comes and goes, somedays are better than others.

Can anyone relate to this? What did you do, how did you approach the problem and what made it dry itchy patches on skin better? Is this just a waiting game at this point? Any information you could share would be great. Feeling this way really stinks, esp when I was hoping to be feeling really free dry itchy patches on skin at this point and no so dark and and condemned dry itchy patches on skin and hopeless. Thanks.

Thank you all for your great replies. I am still going strong at day 33 now. I even encountered some former triggers this week in the dry itchy patches on skin form of old friends who I used to drink with, but I was not tempted. I think it’s unfortunate, but in many cases with addiction one cannot begin to dry itchy patches on skin see the light until you begin to see the harm dry itchy patches on skin the substance is doing to your body. I used to smoke cigarettes, but I’ve been off those for at least 5 years now. There has been cancer and death in my family due dry itchy patches on skin to tobacco use and I guess I sort of figured dry itchy patches on skin if I kept my habit up for the next 15-20 years I would probably be in the same boat. With alcohol, the poor health eventually comes around too, but perhaps this is not as obvious to some. I have def. Noticed a decline in general fitness over the last 6 dry itchy patches on skin years of drinking fairly hard again. But then again, I am also 6 years older so sometimes I think dry itchy patches on skin we can falsely assume symptoms of alcohol use are just dry itchy patches on skin normal symptoms of aging.

I think one one of the things that bothers me dry itchy patches on skin the most though is the skin issues. I have always had issues with dermatitis since my teenage dry itchy patches on skin years, but it seems to be worse or more aggravated during dry itchy patches on skin times of excessive alcohol or caffeine use. I’m wondering if there is a real link to alcohol dry itchy patches on skin though because for me, it seems almost as bad now as it was when dry itchy patches on skin I was drinking. Granted I have only been not drinking for 33 days. I’m trying to drink lots of water, but I still drink some caffeine during the day and dry itchy patches on skin I’m hoping I don’t have to give that up completely to recover from dry itchy patches on skin the dermatitis.

I will close by saying this: to anyone reading this post and who is thinking of dry itchy patches on skin quitting drinking: please do it! I know that you really can’t quit until you are ready but don’t continue to sacrifice your sanity and heath with a dry itchy patches on skin substance that offers neither and will just continue to rob dry itchy patches on skin you of everything you have day by day. For all of us who are compulsive drinkers – yes in an ideal world one glass of _____ per dry itchy patches on skin year would be a wonderful treat but the addictive mind dry itchy patches on skin doesn’t work that way. Some things have to be abandoned entirely to maintain freedom. In the end I think you need to know yourself dry itchy patches on skin to know what you can and can’t handle. I know that being committed to no alcohol consumption is dry itchy patches on skin where I need to be.
