I don't know if this has been said, but mixing alcohol
CAN be deadly and IS dangerous. I say this because while the OP might want to switch from an alcohol addiction
to a kratom addiction, kratom will not ease the withdrawals from alcohol. Either way, the OP has to taper down on alcohol in order to make the switch. This is where the incredible amount of danger comes in.
If you can't get your kratom once you make the switch, the withdrawals (as said above) will not kill you, but they SUCK with a capital fucking K. If an order does not come in on time or you simply cannot get it, then it sucks to be you (blunt, not uncaring words) for the time till you can "re-up" on kratom. With alcohol, even if you have to recycle cans, or ask for change you can get your "fix" and not die from alcohol withdrawals.
The alcohol for SURE is the more dangerous and deadly drug
, so switching to kratom while having it's own downfalls is not so bad, especially compared to the former. I just have no clue how you will taper off alcohol, while switching to kratom safely. Again, some people can drink on kratom, but they are both CNS (central nervous system) depressants
There was a DF member who passed away after taking alcohol, kratom, and codeine
. While codeine for sure had a huge impact in the mixing, kratom kind of potentiates (isn't always a good thing) other CNS depressants.
I would say if you are doing this by yourself, don't try it, if you are going to ask for help and get help along the way so that it's done safely, go for it.
Sorry if anything I said was already said above (and I didn't mention it).
