I just enjoy beer. All the different styles, history, recipes, etc. I like to sample and taste them. It’s not like I drink a 12pack a night just to get hammered, but we are quite fond of doing brewery tours in different cities and whatnot. And craft beers these days are often fairly high abv.

:dunno:
thats like my wife saying she likes the taste of coffee

Dude, there are so many variables. What might trigger a complete set of organ failure in one person might not even register with another. Humans are fucking weird.

But I hear you. We have drank a lot more during the pandemic.
Werd.

it was kinda weird, pandemic started and we were all like “fuck it, let’s party like college kids”. It’s only been the past maybe 6 months that it’s started to really slow back to a normal, sane level.

Legit, how much you gotta drink to have this happen at his age? srs question, not trolling because the wife and I have hit the sauce pretty hard since Covid started. Kinda makes you realize how delicate life is.

RIP
In 2014 I ended up in the hospital with DT’s after drinking a fifth of vodka a night for two weeks straight. I had been drinking for three years already at that point though.

I was 26.

Just read all 17 pages and I’m blown away. I know @Bugalu from locking horns in POL threads but never knew there was this whole other side of people all over the world that knew & cared about him.

I wish all of you peace. I hope his family/friends can find comfort in knowing that this weird shitty website exists, and that people here cared about him. It seems like his suffering may have already helped others here.

Fuck. I had an endoscopy done in 2015 to check for these. None found, but then I kept drinking for another five years.

If they were going to develop, they’d have happened in the past two years I’ve been sober, right?
It is NEVER too late to quit drinking, but at your age, cirrhosis is uncommon but not impossible. Go get checked out for a physical though. Tell them about your drinking. Don't lie about anything.

Sounds like hepatorenal syndrome as well.
at the end, it all shuts down :( Hepatorenal syndrome is more cirrhosis + ESRD rather than fulminant hepatic failure + acute renal failure/AKI/etc. I only scrubbed one OLT + DDKT for hepatorenal syndrome, and the recipient had super advanced disease. It wasn't an acute process.

Word. It's nice to know that outside of fighting about POL shit, he was a good dude, but at the same time it sucks to find that out because he passed away :(

I quit drinking two years ago. You’re right, it’s never too late to stop. I’m here if anyone wants to talk.

Had acute cirrhosis in 2019, but as of March 2021 my liver was back to normal, they couldn’t even see any scarring.

the fear a lot of people have is that you are honest about addiction issues you get flagged as an addict and then can't get painkillers if you have an injury or something like that. I don't know how true that is.
