Day 1 of my water fast

Fasting and Detox

Just got done reading Dr. Fuhrman's book on fasting (for the second time) and decided to just do it. A little over two and a half years ago I had gastric bypass surgery. I lost 50 pounds in the first 4 months but then my grandson died and I couldn’t deal with it. I also have bi-polar disorder so it wasn’t a good idea for me to get the bypass surgery, but I didn’t do enough research beforehand. So 4 ½ months after my weight loss surgery I switched my food addiction to alcohol addiction. I’ve been a major alcoholic for 2 ½ years. I quit 3 days ago because I believe I was very close to dyeing and I was putting my poor husband through too much grief. Now I want to detox.
Even though I wasn’t eating much (because 90% of my stomach was cut away) I was drinking a fifth of rum a day so I actually gained back 25 pounds of the 50 that I lost!!! So, I still have about 100 pounds to lose. :O( But more important I really, really want to repair all the damage I’ve done to my body over the last 2 ½ years.
I’m going off all my medication (which, my bi-polar is comply out of whack right now anyway…I have an appointment with my psy Friday) but the one medication I’m really worried about going off of is my sleeping pills. I have taken 12.5 mgs of Ambien CR for 9 years. The bi-polar causes me to have insomnia and I cannot sleep without them. Before I started taking sleeping pills I had chronic fatigue for my whole life. Any suggestions on what to do to get to sleep while on this fast/detox???
