After spending nearly all of 2018 sober and feeling life was getting back on track, new job, healthier in both mind and body. Things were looking good. Then i had an accident at work and broke my hip, i was off sick obviuosly and then my contract ran out and it was not renewed. Add to this that the operation was a botch job and i had constant pain i started drinking/self medicating again
Pretty much every day and up until last wednesday at least ten pints a night.
Anyway, i have to go back an have another operation in a few weeks. After blood tests etc. i was told i was in very bad shape, so yesterday i didn`t drink, i intend not to today. I can`t look further than a day at a time but i`m hopeful i can do it this time and stick to it.
Just thought i`d share.
