How to Withdraw From a Binge?
Lots of people experienced, observed and, therefore, are well aware of the difference between sober and drunk man. And so, they had to hear about the state of the binge. Throughout in the chain “feast – alcohol – booze – removal of the binge” all links must be accompanied by one link at all stages – the alcohol addiction. Therefore, let’s remember what is it?
Speaking about the alcohol dependence, physicians primarily mention the reasons for its occurrence and call a number of social and psychological factors. Pay attention to your TV screens. Manufacturers, seeking to bring the buyer to the points of sale of their products, first show quite sober, cheerful company that selects exactly the right spirit. Wouldn’t you remember such movie, going to visit? Of course, you will use the cheerful company’s “advice”!
Next time, being already prepared, you will ignore the advice and just tack weld the familiar bottle. When you would like to have some changes, you will buy a bottle of the other “label”. Then it becomes a habit and, depending on the physical features of the body, sooner or later, finds a solid, though the false belief that it is the norm.
Alcohol dependence is “rooted” in the body gradually. In adolescence, usually unconsciously, and then – through the inability to refuse or “for courage”, because of the desire to relax, etc. Over time, this process becomes not a tradition and not a habit – the human brain takes the initiative and begins to dictate the body something that has been taught him so long – a constant presence in the body of extra doses. The person evaluates and convinces himself that the strengthening of the body was held. But there are already exist the memory lapses that are comprehensible only to physicians: in the beginning just by short episodes, and then by full-length scenes. And now only the short companions’ jokes are left: “Wow, how funny you slammed your face in a salad yesterday!”.
At hangover it is remembered that in the early evening there really was a salad. But it isn’t remembered to fell there with face … “Jokes, I guess.”
Morning hangover wineglass does not save us from suffering, the body enters into a transitional stage of alcoholism during the binge. It lasts from Friday to late Sunday with a hangover at the start of next week. Then it begins to gently “grab” one more day next week. Then the number of days increases more and more.
Carelessness and indifference of drinking relatives don’t promote the independent access from the cycle of alcohol intoxication. There comes a moment when it becomes impossible without assistance of a specialist.
Heavy drinking and drunkenness: can be equated?
Until the person isn’t managed by alcohol, his body doesn’t know yet what the binges are. Prior to take the reins of alcohol dependence there may be only periods that resemble the binges. For example, vacation or prolonged holidays, a person spends in the company of friends or relatives, where the Bacchus is necessary “presented”, and, in the morning and right up to the moment when the eyes start to close themselves.
But the day of return to work comes and the person stops, leads himself up, and set aside the glass until the next occasion. About alcoholic intoxication resembles only a headache and morning hangover.
This is – drunkenness.
Some experts still tend to think about even short and not of frequent heavy drinking as the sign of alcohol dependence.
Booze – is something distinctive from alcoholism: a manifestation of alcohol dependence, which man can not control and that takes a long time. Its distinguishing feature is the irrepressible craving for alcohol, from which a person can not cope alone. For binge the characteristic features that are familiar to alcoholics are:
- severe intoxication;
- withdrawal symptoms;
- violation of the metabolism in the body.
Becoming a morbid state of craving for alcohol
Embryo of alcohol dependence syndrome that occurs in the first stage of chronic alcoholism, is formed precisely at the moment of habituation to the bottle, which then acquires the characteristic stability.
Some doctors use to alcoholics such definition as pathological craving. It is characterized by complex set of symptoms that originate in the diseased brain. Usually it is hard to understand the meaning or clarify the position with balanced person psychologically, and, to a greater extent, just impossible. However, humanity has managed to define its components:
- person lives by anticipation of another drinking, thoughts in his head are mixed, as the ingredients in a blender: What compromise is between sobriety and drunkenness;
- person does not see the point in treatment, does not agree that he was in a rut and alcoholism itself can not get out of it;
- a person has disturbed emotional balance: has an aggressive view, grouchy character, he becomes indifferent to what is happening around, appearance becomes slovenliness, etc.
Craving for alcohol has two components:
- Physiological desire. Person uses alcohol as a contributing factor towards the intended goal – simplifying procedures of dating in establishing contact with a partner or new friends, for relaxation and calm. In this part it is dictated by the customs and traditions of the existing society.
- Pathological craving. At this stage the person rebounding from physiological desires strives to only one goal – to embed the pile and “have fun”.
The desire to drink becomes a priority and no external factors can become an obstacle to the goal. Very soon it becomes a goal in itself.
The first touch of the pathological craving gets to the start of the first stage of alcoholism. This attraction has two stages.
Primary pathological craving is at the appearance of the desire to drink when the body does not feel the lack of additional doses of alcohol. In this state, the person still does not get any hangovers or intoxication:
- he is fully convinced that his desire to drink realized, parses all the barricades on the road, the mood – combat and upbeat, everything unrelated to the feast becomes secondary;
- consciousness is increased by the amplitude of oscillation: the scales vary between the desire to drink and doubts whether it is worth doing. Sometimes outweighs the desire, and the next time – doubt;
- attraction may appear during the feast or even to the “flat spot”;
- to the attraction may encourage physical exhaustion;
- it occurs in the early stages of alcoholism in the form of manifestation of psychological dependence on alcohol.
The five areas, indicating the occurrence of a critical point of craving for alcohol are identified. They are classified into five groups:
- Thoughts. Person have are quite predictable gain and dynamic development of the attraction: crystallization own point of view, memories and reflections, doubts and beliefs. With the development of the disease drinker produces the formula to justify his behavior.
- Behavior. Drinker contemptuously refers to everybody who try to pull it with alcohol intoxication, he will not accept any procedure, rejects the mode of treatment, becomes vain and restless. Easily goes to conflict, ready to overcome all that stands in the way to the bottle.
- Emotions are pushing to irritable and grumpy, depression and aggression. Sick shies from apprehension and anxiety because of the uncertainty of the future, he does not “find himself a place”.
- Vegetative reactions are occurred in glowing eyes and facial pallor, excessive salivation and straight talk on any topic related to liquor.
- Feelings push the complains from the person like cramped teeth, sensation in his stomach, the heart flutter, etc. Dreaming in the alcoholic fog appear as if suddenly, amid peace and prosperity. The most striking argument is contrary to the misleading impression of the patient about his supposedly perfect health – a categorical denial of even a hint of the presence of the disease in his body.
The man with obvious signs of binge, it is a drunkard who already “conquered” one of the peaks – second or third stage of alcoholism. Under binge occur deep transformations that result in human brain controls the second craving for alcohol. Man is inside irresistible armored shell paired with alcohol. And this shell can not overcome any other topic, except alcohol. Therefore, all attempts to reach out to the relatives of the brain of the patient in a position they are not perceived binge. The man is convinced that he is steadily moving in the right direction. In fact – the trajectory of falling, destroying all that is behind his imaginary armor.
Chemical constituents of the binge
The larger and longer the man pours into himself, the richer it becomes the body of poisons on deposits. Increasing concentrations negatively affects the well-being of the drinker. It then pushes a “self-healing” by the same toxins.
Scientists looked at the behavior of the internal processes of alcohol in the human body, and found many changes in biological processes. Continuing research revealed that these changes lead to violations of established physiological functions.
Unambiguously defined: alcohol’s frontline – alcohol itself. But his shot hits not every organism, not all drank become alcoholics. Traditionally label alcoholic glue on overalls fitter and lapel suit creative personality. However, not all categories of hegemonic reach a state of “always drunk” and not all writers or artists holding pens and brushes with trembling hands, do not lose self-control, do not become slaves of alcohol.
Dynamics of alcoholism – it is always the result of three factors:
Less studied to date, biochemical and physiological aspects. Location of the biochemical processes of the line remains outside the unknown beyond which the transformation of domestic drinking alcohol in a painful defeat.
There is a version that the susceptibility to alcohol is dependent on the specifics of metabolism in the body. R.Vilyams come to believe that some personal biochemistry of heredity in organisms individuals may result in a violation of a number of enzymes. This can lead to violations of the centers responsible for the food. And it is followed by a deficit by own alcohol in the body.
Experiments on mices and rats have shown that lowering caloric intake of rodents, accompanied by some poison poisons, is the apparent desire to “top up” its reserves in the body. An interesting detail: the female sex hormones markedly reduced cravings for alcohol.
Among the other hypotheses about the possible violators of metabolism and other processes:
- oxidation of the alcohol and the conversion to acetic acid;
- imbalance between adrenaline and his counterpart adrenochrome. The deficit last accompanied by the internal state of anxiety and constant tension.
First, the body includes internal reserves and fights stranger outside, but in the course of gradual “training” cheat and get used to alcohol.
In the struggle, and often included defeated starts the liver, heart, pancreas and brain. Suffering from drunk yesterday transferred to the stage in front of an empty glass of vodka torment today. It is necessary to pour and drink as everything falls into place to happen again, but at a higher level.
The debate about the dangers of drinking and its quantity doesn’t matter any more. Strong alcoholic drink destructive acts on the brain. The more “impurities” are there in the drink, then more “effective” they affect the liver, pancreas, and more anti-cancer protection weakens the body.
The circle is closed, and the events begin to spiral, leading to increased binge. At the vegetative stage it will not stop: a craving for alcoholism becomes irresistibly unconscious. Drunken man can not break out of this circle alone.
Oh! Don’t you want some mineral water?
Alcoholism – a disease with experience. Its symptoms did not specify by one generation of living. Therefore, people have accumulated much experience in combating binge. The ancestors of many recipes handed folk remedies, among them – a solid list of different dishes and drinks. So here is the list of “hangover” courses:
- DSA soup;
- onion passaged;
- beef broth;
- pickles, cabbage, tomato, etc .;
Unfortunately, home treatment, and more precisely, self heavily, often has the same effect as the old yellow card for colds. Hangover is of several types, and therefore the treatment should be a “point”, for each type of “disease”, particularly if it is serious. For example, to find out exactly what alcohol cravings more often more dangerous than heroin.
Cozy home room can replace the hospital ward, but only in case of the presence of the doctor – psychiatrist. His circle of tasks includes several mandatory segments:
- excrete the poisons of alcohol, conduct detoxification;
- correct metabolic disorders;
- facilitate the patient’s condition after the cessation of alcohol consumption;
- block the craving for alcohol.
“Barriers” may be pointless and even harmful
Sometimes rely on the experience of neighbors, relatives or the same sufferers – alcoholics. Those advised to give the patient textural, MCPFE or lidevin. But these barrier-type drugs are not “working”, and vice versa, the metabolic blockade of ethanol oxidation causes suffocation. “Treatment” is still reduced to call “ambulance”. But time is lost, and the risk to human life unnecessarily increases. Therefore it is better to give the patient’s life in the hands of people in white coats.
Detoxification methods …
Medical intervention is considered to be the most effective. It provides an opportunity to better define “diagnosis” and choose the procedure for treatment. Well developed method – the method of detoxification. The patient was put dropper prescribe and perform washing of the body in order to maximize getting rid of poisons.
If the situation is complicated, you can always seek help from a psychologist.
Procedure is not pleasant: the treatment of patients after carrying drinking bouts is heavy. This is one reason why the treatment in the hospital is more suitable, here he will be under the constant supervision of doctors. If necessary, it will be possible to provide operational assistance, designate additional inspections, tests, or procedures.
Procedures for bioenergy
They are effective at a higher voltage, in stressful situations, as well as mental and physical exhaustion. Sessions helps patients improve overall, increase efficiency or normalize sleep.
If you choose the right approach for the management of the patient, and it goes without complications, one can hope for the positive outcome of medical procedures.
Try to deprive the child’s favorite toys
The situation is only slightly resembles the behavior of the child. When he acts up, you can distract him a favorite toy or other occupation. Excretion of binge drinkers is associated with the “distraction” of the whole human body after he was deprived of a source of pleasure – alcohol. The body while undergoing a biochemical stress, acting on inertia, continues the “production” of alcoholic enzymes. They need appropriate dose of ethanol, but do not get it, because alcohol intake ceased. After a few days it can manifest severe complications as a drunken delirium, epileptiform seizures or alcoholic hallucinosis. Therefore, one detoxification insufficient. It is necessary to deceive the body – to normalize acid-base balance, “slipping” he elements of potassium and magnesium, vitamins and amino acids.
Returning the body to its former state of sobriety, the doctors at this stage “fix success” by encoding, hypnosis or related drugs.
Two steps back to normal life
Remember, in the process of bringing the body to a state of the binge, mentioned such a thing as physical dependence. The destruction of its foundations is the first station on the way back to the old life. Deriving the drinker from the state of alcoholic binge, you need to bring people from the state of mental overstimulation. If not removed, this can cause seizures in humans.
The second step on the way back for a former alcoholic to a normal life is to free the man from the pathological connection to alcohol. Specialists task – to return the alcoholic his health, to relieve the suffering of all family members, which could not affect the consequences of heavy drinking some of them. The cycle of seed therapy helps. A comprehensive program should harmonize relations in the “cell of society.”
When it will restore all of their social functions, it can be assumed that treatment is successful and complete.
