Scary how easy the coin can flip!

Well...I am sober 56 days now, and as many if you know, I went to the doctor in fear if what my drinking may have done to my health. Got my blood work results and liver and kidneys both fine! Phew, big relief! They are redoing my CBC because my white blood cell count was on the high end of the normal range. They are wondering if I have an infection.

Well, I was so relieved about my liver being okay, but then started stressing what might be causing the Other issue, I actually considered drinking!!!!!

Hey....liver okay? I still have done time former stinking! This idea shocked me, and may me realize the potential power of the AV:-(. I did not drink, and have no intention of drinking, but that fact that the idea popped in my head no matter how briefly us still so shocking!

So happy to have fought it. I would have hated myself if I relapsed.

Just wanted to share....hope all are well:-)

Congrats on your sober time and your good test results.

Congrats on your time & happy to hear you are well... Infections usually easy to treat
The key to my recovery- Surrender to my alcoholism, turn my will over to God, expect nothing and accept reality.

Glad your test results came back favorable.

That AV is a tricky summbeach, eh? Way to recognize it and bat it aside.
