Sober

Due to a hiccup of a sort that I won't elaborate, too much, I was told by my doctor to quit the drink. This is day 2.

Have a friend in intensive care having bits of her body cut out - her last words before she went under the knife were... 'What I done in the past has come back to bite in the ass'

I've been having a myriad of health issues for a while now.
One common refrain I heard from doctor after doctor was "your drinking is making the condition worse."
The two main issues were a troublesome gall bladder and an irksome prostate.
So I said to myself, "fine, I lay off the booze until they get these two issues resolved."

One year, fourteen days, fourteen hours and fifty odd minutes later... (but who's counting?)

There was absolutely no improvement or lessening of symptoms by not drinking. The gall bladder was removed April 11th. Immediate improvement.
My urologist is currently working on resolving the prostate issue
(says it's one of the worst cases of rust he's ever seen).
Again, no improvement or lessening of symptoms by not drinking.
Hopefully that issue will be resolved soon.

If any of you have any spare money laying around, I strongly advise buying shares in Jameson. I have a lot of catching up to do.

I have discovered that medicine is not an exact science. I now realise that there is a huge amount of guess work involved.
If the doctors can blame booze instead of their ineptitude, they will.

Well maybe it's down to the individual at the end of the day, rather than what one persons opinions on what's right or wrong. Anyway, my stuff may be mild by some other persons axiom, but what my doc said was to stay off the drink for a month, see if stuff improves. If not we'll try something else.
I hope your friend get's better @flame on.
Well-done on your soberiety @kevsamo. I hope you get your clear bill of health soon.
Drink may not be the evil some would ascribe it to in most cases, but in some it definitely doesn't help.

Day 3. :-)

Being drunk is better. My life would be interminable if I wasn't wasted once a week.

I packed in drinking over 10 years ago and really haven't missed it. Yes, it was awkward at a social level for a little while but that soon settled itself out. In fact, when I look back on it I think that my friends had more difficulty than I did with me not drinking.
I stopped drinking because I was no longer getting the fun out of it that I had done in the years before and I felt that if I was not careful, I would end up going places that I did not want to go.
I do socialise and go out regularly, I entertain at home, I go dancing and I have no problem with the idea of not having a drink while I do those things. Giving up drink is not the end of the world, although to listen to some you would think that there is no life after it. Don't worry about it, hang in there and realise that the world is still there without it.

we..ll.. I fell of the wagon, but not hard. I'd a glass of wine with a carbonara yesterday. It was very nice. Back on again, now. How long will I last this time?
