So 6 years ago I had a gastric bypass and since that time my drinking has gotten alot worse.
Tonight I went to an AA meeting and started to think "Damn when did I become and addict to the bottle?"
I came home did some research and found this website Gastric bypass surgery and alcoholism: Is there addiction transfer after weight loss surgery?
I am not blaming my drinking on my gastric bypass... I mean in somme ways it saved my life. I lost 200 pounds... and I healed alot of the health issues that I had before the bypass. But, I will say that it is alot easier to get drunk now then it was before. Before I would drink 6-10 drinks... and be totally fine. Now I am two glasses of wine in and I am a total B****...
Like I said... I am not tranferring my blame... I am what I am because of the decisions I made. But, it is nice to know there are some studies out there that show I might have been prone to it.
And, since it is a progressive disease ... I got to stage 4 in 5 years... not 25 like alot of people.
Anyway, just throwing out thoughts.
Thanks for listening... I am really glad you are all here...
