Hi I'm Dr. Phil
Can I ask your first name?
Nice to meet you
I'm glad you have decided to quit
This is ABSOLUTELY a muth
stopping alcohol can only help you
im just scared that Ive damaged my new liver already
have you had any monitoring of the new liver? liver function? biopsy?
ive been putting off going for my blood tests
how much were you drinking?
last time I had bloods my liver tests were elevated but they fluctuate anyway
perhaps 8 glasses of white wine per day
Yes, that is a lot
hopefully there is no damage but I share your concern
Well you are human Sarah
everyone makes mistakes
The most important thing is to stop from here on out
I think I drink to cope with depression
I think seeing your GP and getting evaluated for depression and treated can help
The only concern is alcohol withdrawal
have you ever gone 48 hours or longer without alcohol?
ive withdrawn from valium some years ago
it cant be harder thn tht
yes I had a really bad cold recently and went for 3 days
well I felt awful with the cold
I didn't notice any untoward symptoms
okay the only concern is alcohol withdrawal can be life threatening
seizures, DTs, etc
I recommend you talk to your GP about this.
Just be honest
