My D.O. prescribes a book: 'Heal Thyself,' written by a French Surgeon, on the brink of life disaster -- with self-prescribing clearance, Clarance - who had been through the rungs of A.A., and remembered a newspaper article, that a family member had sent him -- on the study of baclofen, as per addiction in rats. so he started his experiment. . . what he discovered was :: the onset of alcoholic craving is an anxiety. baclofen has a non-addictive, non-tolerance buildup, as a skeletal muscle relaxant (also used to treat seizure), with the benefit of enhanced neuro-function. it does require a taper up and taper down, if you so choose. dosages should start at 10mg 3x t.id. and ramp to 40-60mg x 6hrs.
Here's the Kindle Book :: first half reads like the Big Book, followed by Revelation.
Additional, <attached>, my personal 'Baclofen Protocol' v1. spreadsheet -- If your ALSO experimenting with recovery, I advise you to use this format, and track yourself for about a week --
footnote on A.A. :: great idea (at the time); Love you, Bill -- so sorry your friends didn't give you alcohol on your death bed; additional: so proud of your spiritual awakening.. you know.. you can't live an LSD trip more than, say, twice -- after that you just gotta know (the universe) -- pity, the program doesn't and (can't) promote YOUR treatment, due to Schedule I. At least we have cannabis. --c3w
