Hi Kellie, I'm SO sorry I missed your question! We had some illness in the family last month, and I got way behind. Yes, all of the symptoms you mentioned are possible effects of PAWS. They should ameliorate with time, especially if you follow the suggestions about nutrition and exercise. I totally get your preference for doing it yourself without outside support. I tried it several times; it didn't work for me. Keep in mind that there are deep social and self-esteem issues involved in addiction. Those are most readily dealt with by seeking help outside ourselves. If we don't handle those issues, we run the risk of becoming successfully abstinent, but still the same old me. That's not good. We used to switch off our brains for SOME reason, and when we get them switched back on, the old stuff often comes back to haunt us. Good luck in your recovery. Again, I'm sorry for the tardiness in replying, and Keep on keepin' on! Bill

Hi, there, Someone on a recovery site directed me to this post. I'm 9 weeks sober from alcohol and metally feel pretty darn good. I've always been able to give myself pep talks and don't need a lot of "outside" mental support, probably because I've always been extremely introverted. My question is.....most of your "symptoms" of Paws discuss mental issues. Is it also possible to feel physically horrible? Lethargy, headaches, malaise, tummy aches/nausea etc? I completely get the "brain fog" and what goes along with it. It is frustrating but I tend to laugh it off, because I know it is my brain trying to figure out what the heck is going on. But these days I have of physically feeling like poo are getting to me. I literally can be great one day, and then feel like I've got a bug of some kind the next. SO appreciate all of the support. One day at a time.

Hi Luke, My wife, who has been sober for going on 28 years, has been taking Beta blockers regularly for decades. They will cause no problems with your recovery. Best, Bill

Hi bill, I hope you're well. I currently take beta blockers to control huge panic attacks. I have suffered from paws and I'm worried that beta blockers could interfere with recovery, what is your opinion please? Apparently they are non addictive and don't cross the blood brain barrier. Thank you so much

Hi Again, Good to hear that you're not knowingly dealing with the trauma in waking hours. You should know that EMDR often takes two or three sessions, and consider that "it wasn't for me" may simply mean that there are things you don't want to remember. The things in therapy that make us most uncomfortable are often those that we choose to discount. The PAWS should continue to subside slowly, with periods of remission followed by recurrences of some of the symptoms. It's a process, not an event. Good to hear that it is going well for you. Bill
