Hi, I have a question on Alcohol. detoxing yourself at home. I'm 47, and short of getting completely back on the wagon. I 've fallen this system of drinking for 3-4 days VERY hard, at least a 5th a day...then my body and mind start feeling worn out for obvious reasons. So at that point I stop and it takes about 4 days to feel "ok" again...we all have heard the stories of BEST to detox under medical care...but for the sake of my situation. Question is the last 7-8 years thise detoxing has gotten way worse than it use to what point of severity detox symptoms, follow down dizziness, head ache, shortness of breath, is it possibly getting close to a stroke, or some other life threatening blood pressure goes to a range near 180/110 ' normal BP is high too 140-50/ at what point are all the combined symptoms becoming dangerous.....I' gone to the hospital several times....but mostly just lay in bed and ride it out....but it don't want to accidentally let it get too dangerous at my case it's starting to feel kind of in the danger zone every time
