A message to young people
Hi, I'm 44 years old and I have recently been diognosed with cirrhosis of the liver. This is a terminal illness, as of yet there is no cure and very little treatment.
I used to drink beer when I was young and I couldn't drink very much, in my early 20s I developed a taste for whiskey, by age 25 I had become quite a heavy drinker and it escalated from there.
I've quit drinking several times but I always go back to it, once you become an alcoholic it is very difficult to stop.
I'm not one to preach but I just wanted to show you how easy it is to go from a casual drinker to a slave to alcohol.
If this little message helps anyone in any way then it was worth posting.
Thank you for reading
