I haven't posted lately so I wanted to check in. Quick back story was a heavy drinker for 15 years quit cold turkey just because I wanted to be a better dad to my young kids. Came clean to my family doctor about my drinking history and he ordered an ultrasound and blood work. Blood work was ok but ultrasound was questionable so went to a specialist and got a fibroscan which showed a 6.3 kpa not terrible but not great either.
I'm now 9 months sober and feel good have lost weight and am probably in the best shape of my adult life. I just want people who are stuggling with sobriety to know it's possible to stay clean but its not easy. I'm not going to say I feel great being sober and all is perfect it's not I have had to change my whole life all my routines involved drinking now it's all different. The boredom is the worst I need to fill my drinking time with other things and I have not been very sucsessful with that yet. Anyway this is a realistic look at sobriety you want it to be wonderful and feel amazing but it's hard work and a struggle most of the time.
Good luck to all who are stuggling and thank you to all who are suffering with liver disease who take the time to help all of us on this site I'm truly greatfull to have found you all. I intend to make the most of my new found sober life
