Good going Sally. So nice for the update. Congratulations on 4 months sober. You are a winner. It does not matter how we got sober but it matters we are sober.

Good afternoon Sally. Bright blessings to you.

Sobriety is as unique as the person it belongs to. However you make it yours, works. Really good to hear from you and how you are getting along.

Be peaceful, be healthy and be strong. Loveness to you Sallly.

thank you all for your kind words!
I'm so touched, and although I'm not desperate for support any more, it's good to know you're all there, and if there's anything I can do to support any of you I'd be happy to return the favour. So in case anyone has any comments or questions about using Baclofen as a means of breaking the addiction cycle, or anything else they'd like to say to me, I'll check this thread once in a while, as I've been through the experience and come out the other side sober!
Once again, all good wishes to you all, and much love

Hi Sally, you have given me hope and but I do have questions. I joined today and posted this. Experience welcomed!
Hi All,
I've just joined today and have started taking Baclofen out of desperation.
I'm on my second day of Baclofen (tried Rehab / AA etc) at 3 x 10mg dosage.
It seems to already be lessening my cravings but they are still overwhelming in the evening when I finish work.
I guess I am so desperate that I am looking for it to work straight away.
From research it seems prudent to not up the dosage beyond an additional 3 x 5mg every 3 days.
Can anyone confirm whether I could increase the dosage faster? (I have to hold down a senior job so side effects need to be minimal so I can function).
Does anyone have experience of when the cravings and obsession will lift and at what dosage they start to become manageable?
I've read somewhere that it works for some on my current dosage but it hasn't for me yet.

On a separate note, does anyone combine Baclofen with AA? The two methods seem to oppose each other and I'd feel ashamed going to meetings while taking Baclofen. That may be my messed up thinking.

Thank you for any support or advice you can give.
