Nootropics.. unfortunately non.. although there are medicine that dull the effects when you drink alcohol like Topiramate (it helps I tried) and Naltrexone (never tried it).

 

TBH I've been alcoholic for just 1.5 years and I don't regret it. I've managed to relieve such distress that I wouldn't be able through exercise, medicine, therapy and/or whatever.

 

When the hangover from alcohol says I'm going to make your life depressed, isolated, lonely and miserable it's time to let go of alcohol and the past or whatever that haunts you emotionally.

OK so you're saying 1) there are no nootropics to help and 2) alcohol helped you?

Anyone else with something that makes more sense?

1. Yes
2. Yes, it helped me for a long while until I started to hit rock bottom everytime I drunk.
3. Quiting helps alcoholism, try that.

Umm...OK

 

I presupposed quitting alcoholism, if that wasn't clear. The point was to find nootropics that help with withdrawal and perhaps 'fill the void' that alcohol did. I know the latter is a much more expansive question.

 

Anyone else?

Topiramate has terrible cognitive (or shall I say anticognitive) side effects, much worse than benzos like Klonopin.

Bill Wilson, co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, had success with Niacin (three grams total daily in three equal doses).   It appears to have helped him with depression and fatigue. Wilson published some booklets on the subject which can be found on the Internet as a pdf.

 

One of his friends was Abram Hoffer, M.D., who was big into Niacin therapy. I have no personal experience with this and would be cautious about working up to such a large dose due to the flushing effect. Hoffer lived to 91 and has some interesting publications.
