Hey! Thanks for writing to me! that's awesome you were able to cut down so well. Of course I knew I 'should' cut down all along when I was drinking about 1-2 bottles of wine most days, but joke's on me! It only took about 4 years of that to achieve full on cirrhosis, so no cutting down time frame .... just 100% done. Needless to say, I was feeling so awful by the time I was diagnosed, I had already stopped drinking. So, my problem I guess is a "go big or go home" complex... Just have to think of new ways to express it! Cheers to a big glass of O.J.!
well maybe i am brain damaged already. hah but i have never made the decision to just not drink anymore. it has always been...... well i am going to have to not drink as much..... or will just have to stay away from the vodka and redbulls......
or just drink wine.......blah,blah,blah.
i just CANNOT DRINK ALCOHOL.
just like i CANNOT TAKE A PILL.
so that is that. and it is still realing around in the back of my head. that maybe in time i will be able to just have a couple of social drinks now and then. hah- but i also had that when i quit the pills. and i am kicking that thought to the curb over and over again here. and i will just have to keep doing that.
well i do see a light at the end of this tunnel here. just hoping i haven't done too much damage already.
i really like hiking in the mountains and would probably have to give that up if i were to have seizures.
it is crazy how we have traded our worst nitemare of drugs for this stupid alcoholism. i just did not know
you could still get addicted if you didn't drink every day. somehow though i feel i am going to be alright
