    Hi @Red dog

    I notice you are new to the forums, so I would like to give you a big warm welcome :D
    Congrats on stopping drinking a week ago! Netflix sounds like a great idea to keep busy, there are so many things to watch.
    In terms of medication, that might be a question to ask your GP. Generally there are a few that can help suppress the pleasurable sensations of alcohol, but they differ for everybody.

    Hi @Red dog

    We haven't heard from you in a while, so I thought I would post a message to see how you're going?
    I'll second the previous post about keeping busy with things like Netflix. I've been doing odd jobs around the house lately to keep my mind off things, which helps me feel like I did something useful with my day.

    Hope you're well...
