Krepass

I struggled with alcoholism most of my life before I decided to get sober. I had reached a point to where I was showing severe signs of alcohol withdrawal. I would wake up with the sweats, DTs (shakes), nausea and headaches. I was constantly anxious and a lot more irritable. I could not function unless I had a drink first thing in the morning. I finally decided to get the help I desperately needed for alcoholism. I have been gratefully sober now for two years. I keep myself active in the AA and recovery community. I highly recommend using the resource below, which helped me realize and identify that I was in fact going through alcohol withdrawals and desperately needed help:
