Seriously talk to me if you need reassurance that there is someone out there JUST LIKE YOU!!! Itís so draining and everyday I wake up thinking Ďthis is the day Iím going to dieí and itís always of liver failure yet I still drink? To make myself feel better. Vicious cycle. The shame is I was pregnant for 9 months and didnít touch a drop and was he happiest Iíve ever been!!!
Hi Herbie - that is great to hear. Most of my friends/family just dismiss the hypochondria like get over it, go talk to somebody. Then again they don't really understand how badly it affects you.

I have only had one relapse about 3 weeks into this whole thing. I'm just more scared of liver failure/cirrhosis etc. than I am of anything else now.

If you were really happy not drinking that should be good motivation to stay dry now, no?
