I am an alcoholic/addict who was dx MS in 1996. I work a 12 step program and would like to connect with other alcoholics and addicts who also have MS
Goodness, sorry to hear about this.
Baclofen is supposed to be super for an alcohol addiction. You could easily have it prescribed for muscle spasticity.
It's a long shot but we have excess iron in our brains. Small/medium amounts of alcohol deplete iron reserves (although huge amounts actually deposit iron in the body). There could be some innate urge to drink relating to this. Perhaps taking something else which gets rid of iron, chelates it, would help. A supplement called iP6 does this effectively. I know this from experience - I am mildly anaemic you see and iP6 make my anaemia much, much worse.
I gave up smoking with the Allen Carr book 'The Easyway To Stop Smoking.' I was hopelessly addicted. It was easy and enjoyable to stop. I felt as though, after I read it, I could achieve anything I wanted. It was very empowering. If you are a smoker I should have a read.
And good luck! I'm sure you can get where you want to be.
