When I hear about alcoholic detoxing, part of me feels like “haha I am better than you because I never went through detox.” The other part of me wants to go back out drinking until I get to the point of detox. Then I will feel like a true alcoholic.

That’s an alcoholic mind at work!!
The detox is horrible. Sickness, diarrhoea, sweats, shakes, nightmares…Even with meds. I would not wish it on anyone. It is in no way glamorous.
I don’t think it is glamorous but it is one reason I don’t like AA: some members act like my problems aren’t as real add theirs because I did not go through detox. It is not a support group; it is an addiction replacement.
