I've been having about 6-8 units american of alcohol everyday for a 3- month span straight. These are 40% alcohol and this is about half a fifth daily. I'm able to type this okay, but I'd not say I'm able to operate anything right now without putting someone else in danger. I'm not reluctant to quit, I've been trying to. I don't have any lasting health effects from it (YET) but I can't live a functional life with this. I don't want to quit drinking entirely because I want something I can do and control like a responsible adult. My issue is that I have such an alcohol dependence I've built that the fevers come in about a 12 hour period from the last drink. I have the self control to taper off, and a MMJ card. My question is, is it safe to quit cold turkey if I use cannabis, and what form should I take it, (I only vape and eat cannabis edibles, but I am open to other non combustible options) or should I use marijuana to deal with the nausea and have a shot every time I get the shakes until I know longer need that drink to stop them. (These usually occur 24 hours after I try and quit) The fear of quitting and dying from these symptoms is shit. I wish I could go back to drinking 1-2 days a week. Has anyone gone through alcohol withdrawls cold turkey before. I did it last time and all I remember is having intense shakes for a day or so. and does MMJ actually become some sort of failsafe (I don't trust myself around prescription drugs like benzos, so medical intervention is a last resort) My current theory is I can use MMJ to keep down things so I have enough nutrition and a shot of vodka everyday to avoid having severe shakes and fever.
