My Personal opinion... Step Away From The Booz, all together. I did over a year ago, although i never really drank much, had a job where i wasnt
home often, and could not drink on work days, so the few times i was home during the month, i had a few, but nothing big..
Now i am sitting here dying... no not just words, i am literally dying right now... doc says at most i have 2 years left, the only way for me to
survive to a old age is if someone else dies and i get their body parts... now on the surface that dosent sound to drastic, but when you sit down and
seriously think about it, that is some mind blowing stuff.
I found out the hard way last year that some how some time in my life i had contracted hepatitis C, not exactly sure how, who know, at this stage its
not really important, but until last year i had no clue i was even sick, though i was as healthy as a horse, looking back i wonder how much those
occasional drinks added to my demise..
If i had never had anything to drink in my life, would i be where i am now? how much real damage did drinking do? sadly i'll never know, but since
diagnosed, i walked away from drinking of any kind, and had no problem doing so, sure there are days where a nice cold beer sounds yummy, but i would
never drink one, no mater how good it sounds.
My advise to all, stop drinking, there are those that will think im nuts, and hey thats ok, but in the long term what you do even on a occasional
level will have a effect on your body, and you may not notice it now, or next year, or in 20 years, but when you do, the regret of looking back and
wondering is not worth it...
i am probably not going to get to see my daughter get married, nor see them graduate high school, those are real, if i had not drank anything ever in
my life, would that be different? who knows, but i wish i did not regret finding out.
Drinking is no big deal, until things go out of control, sure drinking alone, i would probably of been fine, but mixed with the hep C i am sure over
the years the combination of occasional drink here or there did not help things at all.
Life is short, dont do anything that could cause it to be shorter. You are better off leaving it alone than wondering what if.
