    Found I had a borderline fatty liver during a health MOT four years or so ago so gave up there and then.

    Difficult at first to break the habit of a drink or three in the evening but after a week the spell was broken.

    Had a couple of glasses of Champagne at Christmas but was careful to leave it at that.

    TBH I don't feel any healthier now than I did then but health must come first.

    Funnily enough I had a health MOT just before Christmas and everything came back normal.

    Cool, that's really great to read!

    We often hear of health problems, but not so many people post that they've recovered, and always nice to read a positive, as well as hear what worked

    This is a powerful thread that resonates with me.

    I had already lined up a month off booze from the 20th Jan (this Saturday) to 20th Feb (when I go to Japan skiing). I hope to take the lessons learnt there on to make lifestyle changes going forward and seriously reduce my alcohol intake.

    I've attended too many funerals of friends who never considered themselves to be alcohol dependent - but fact is they were - and it killed them prematurely. What I object to is managers who are unknowingly alcohol dependent and who get sloshed every weekend .. and then arrive at work on Monday morning (sometimes Saturday morning) in an obviously post-inebriate state and unfit to manage. If you want respect, consider quitting the booze completely. Livers cannot tolerate excess alcohol. Listen to the slurred speech of heavy drinkers … even when relatively sober their speech is affected. Many drinkers consider themselves to be healthy and unaffected by the booze … but they are slowly bringing about their premature demise.
