I was struggling hard with the booze, so I talked to the VA shrink and told her I needed a month or so break from it to reset. No need for AA or anything like that. She put me on Naltrexone. It’s awesome. Doesn‘t make you feel sick. No urges to drink but can enjoy a beer here and there. Now it just makes me feel full. Also helps you lose weight cause it curbs your appetite. The shit is awesome. If you’re looking for something like that call the VA Shrink or your local doc. There’s also a shot you can get that lasts 30 days. FYI.
NOTE: Be advised, your medical history will reflect this and may hinder your chances of getting life insurance in some cases, so keep that in mind.
