If you failed last night, pick yourself back up and start again. You were almost there as far as the withdrawal goes. Continue on. Everyone else is correct, you do need treatment, counseling, and support to help you stay clean once you get there. It IS the after withdrawal part that you need to continue to work on. The reasons why you used in the first place, and a plan on how you will stay clean afterward.
Inpatient treatment is an option, and so may be outpatient if it is available in your area. Check the phone book as someone else suggested. Your doctor can also be a huge support to you, but you have to come clean with him about
what you are doing. He may offer you a tapering plan if cold turkey is too hard for you to handle now.
Make a plan and stick with it.

Adhesive Arachnoiditis also......just what I didn't need..9/08- adding bilateral ulnar neuropathy with severe compression to the mix. They want me to see a surgeon for ulnar nerve surgery, but I'm not biting.
I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
