James Golden, MD responded:
Whether or not you use a detox aide or quit cold turkey is probably not the important question right now for you. That question is: What's going to happen after that?

I suggest you ask your doctor for help, and then perhaps look into treatment so you can stay sober and not have to go through this again.

There is a lot of help for you if you ask for it.
