I'm sorry you're still struggling Dan, but it's always good to see you.
Are you drinking now?

I felt the same way until I decided "I" was worth one more chance. I know you are worth it too. Put down the drink. Everyday things will get a little better

I felt that way too Dan. I just kept getting sicker though. It was never really fun anymore - it only brought me pain and misery. I never thought I could live without it, but it feels wonderful to be free. You are here and posting, so you haven't given up. You can still do it Dan - we know you can.

Dan, lower right side of the abdomen? I have been in the hospital for alcohol-induced hepatitis. The liver is a great organ than can heal itself....only if you stop the booze. Please go see a doctor. I know exactly what you are going through so trust me.

Come on Dan, pull it together. You are posting here so there is some glimmer of hope left. Get in here and let it grow. Just try it. If being sober totally sucks you can always go back to drinking. But I am pretty certain hat if you give it a solid run you will feel better mentally and physically.

At one time I believed I would drink myself to death. I believed there was no way I could ever feel OK unless I drank and that I would continue to drink until I slipped into an early grave. I bought extra insurance (life and liability) to protect my family and asked God to make it as painless as possible.

I was absolutely, utterly, and 100% WRONG.

So are you.

There is another way out and help available on that path.

You can do this.

Dan, how many days I wished the same thing-passed out not wanting to wake up.. Alcoholic liver disease is a slow decline--not the way out you or I want. This is do-able. Glad you posted. Tells me you really want it and that precedes having it.
