Feel strong to quit

Well here again, posting another quitting post. But something is different for me this time.

I've still been drinking a litre of wine a day, but I've managed to have a few days off here and there recently. However the last few weeks I have had a full/swollen feeling in my right side and a very tight sensation in my bladder.

Last two times I have drunk, the normal amount, my hangovers have been incredibly bad. Normally I get none

I have toyed with the idea of seeing the doctor but I am sure he thinks I am a hypochondriac due to me going in often but he knows nothing of my drinking.

But the last few days I've been reading a lot of blogs etc and something in me feels different. I feel very determined to quit. So in a couple of weeks time, if the pains etc sre still there I'll go to the dr.

Let's see what happens, but I feel much stronger than ever before

I'm glad you are back and determined to stop drinking. I think the effects of drinking on our bodies increases as time goes by. It's good you are open to talking to your doctor.

Hi vinono. We definitely have to be ready. Long before I quit, I knew I needed to. I just didn't have the motivation. Sounds like you have it now. Let's do this.

Glad you are back. Finally being honest with my dr, then those I needed to go to like a liver dr, was one of the things that saved my life; the other was AA. I was finally done, and started this much better life.

Best to you.
