I have come to realize that we all make the choice how we will leave this existence by how we choose to live our life,every single day. I for one am so glad you are still here to tell your story. We avoid for the most part thinking about the consequences of our actions until we have no choice. Sometimes by then it's too late. You are lucky Trep, for another chance. Do something amazing.

Glad to hear things are workin' out for you. The only, and I mean The. ONLY. thing that will stop you from drinking alcohol again is you. Not the threat of destroying your new liver, not disappointing and/or losing your wife, family and friends, or even the threat of Death itself. You have to make up your mind that you don't WANT to drink anymore.
Some drinkers can tell you to the minute when they had their last drink. You ask and they'll say 5 years, 7 months, 16 days and 8 hours. Honestly. I've met'em and their every minute is spent thinking about how to Not drink.
I got lucky. About 18 years ago, I quit. Had to. Wound up in the hospital with my skin the color of piss yellow/orange that means your liver is shutting down and, due to alcoholic neuropathy, my legs wouldn't work. 30 days of dry out/drugs/physical therapy and a very very good Physical Therapist who would never take "I'm tired" as an excuse, I walked out sober and haven't looked back.

If you need it, PM me and I'll help anyway I can. Hell, I'll give you my phone number if that's what it takes.

I think cirrhosis occurs when the liver is in a constant state of processing alcohol, no breaks. People wake up with a hangover and think they need a little "hair of the hound", which yes, makes you feel better, but again puts the liver into the state of processing alcohol.

So give it rest folks. Got a hangover? Suffer. You deserve it.

I guess I should spread the good cheer like the others that have replied. I want. You Op in the entire thread have never once said." I'm an alcoholic" whether you think you are or are not....you are. Your thread isn't warning of the perils of drinking one's self to death. It's celebrating your 40 years of boozing. Your health is in the crapper because of your own poor choice's.

Watched the shat kill my dad, my Uncle Tracy, several friends and I watch my son battle it on the daily. Your damn lucky to have gotten a transplant......Alcohol is an equal opportunity killer. It cares not who you are or what your responsible for, it don't care. I hope you have learned your lesson, something tells me you haven't. Good luck with what quality of life you have left......alcohol took that away from you and it ain't coming back. You have YOU to blame for that.

Perscription medications and over the counter ones are very damaging to the liver as well.

Dude, get off the drugs. It impairs your reading comprehension. I'm doing great. You couldn't have been more wrong. Well you could have but that would have meant more typing.

With all the hell you just went thru most likely self inflicted.

You have to consider yourself in a very low percentage of the lucky ones.

Long term Alcohol use can destroy the liver. There is no fake interpretation of that. An occasional beer or two can be good for you but too much never is. Too much alcohol constantly also can cause problems in people's joints, it can cause dry sockets because it can deplete the senovial fluid that lubricates the joint.

That is so true. The meds can also be hard on the kidneys and other organs.

You say 40 years of hard drinking....was that drinking everyday?.....just curious.


Yes. Sometimes twice a day. Drink to passing out, wake up and do it again.


Do you mean that you would wake up and start drinking, every day?

The worst thing you can do is take medication the day after drinking. Dont!
That will surely destroy your liver.
Paracetamol, Panodil, or whatever their names are, just stay away.

If you got a tough hangover, the best thing is a big glass of cold milk/water, and then sleep it off.

Alcoholics generally drink every day. If they have the opportunity to drink all day they often/sometimes will. I used to work back in the day and never drank before or during work but boy I made up for it when I got home. They sell beer at trainstations in The Netherlands. You'll pay 5 times the supermarket price but it's there. Handy if the train is late or you missed it.

Then I'd come home, a few pints before and after dinner and a few large measures of whisky to top it off. Wake up the next morning, no hangover, feeling fine, wash, rinse and repeat.

Alcohol is the most insidious drug I have ever taken and I started drinking aged 30, pretty late compared to a lot of people but it drowns problems well, or at least seems to. I used to be a toker but when life went south I couldn't afford that so turned heavily to alcohol. Biggest mistake of my life so far. Well, that and smoking tobacco since the age of 12. Alcohol and tobacco seem to go arm in arm too, exponentially worse than doing just one at a time. Sad but true, apparently.

Good luck Intrepid, some of us here at least here are rooting for ya!

Your words''''40 years of hard boozing.......if that aint an alcoholic, then I'm a 3 legged spider named DENIAL. I take back you being an alcoholic...your just a drunk, who's in denial. One's who's bragging about his "new liver" cause you killed the one you were born with , with that "40 years of hard boozing". Again, your words, not mine. Doing some simple math......in your mid 50"s been "hard boozing" for 40 years....since you were 15 ?????

News flash. the drugs I take are all prescribed by doctors. My drugs are for the ALS I suffer with....not my own piss poor choices in my life since I was 15.

Listen Sparky, I didn't say I was an alcoholic because it's redundant. Of course I am. It doesn't need to be said. IDK why you're coming with this attitude. Maybe UP your meds then.

No. I was functioning. Well at least for work...mostly. No money, no booze. That was on benders.
