20 year daily beer drinker - may be in trouble.
I am male 5Ē9 155lbs. BMI 22.6. Blood pressure 125/89. Resting pulse 50.
Drinking history: I drank daily since 1998 with a couple of breaks here and there. Since 2004, however, I drank an average of 10 light beers a night and all weekend long. I have always been active and eat as healthy as possible. I have always known I drank in excess and tried to counter with exercise, liquid multi, Milk Thistle ETC. I had blood work done in 2009 and 2016.
Consequences of my drinking: NONE other than DWI X 2 and a couple of PIís and a couple of bad relationships. I have no STDís or HEP C.
I have decided to better myself and stopped drinking 5 months ago. Recently I have been experiencing URQ pain.
I am not yellow, no swelling in abdomen or legs, and feel ok (good energy, sleep ETC). My anxiety is through the roof. Also I am highly irritable. I find it very difficult to believe that there are not dire consequences of drinking to the levels I did for the amount of time that I did.
I just want to clean up my act and be the best version of myself and live a good life.
Regardless of adverse health consequence or not Ė I am DONE drinking FOREVER!!!
I just hope and pray I didnít do too much damage and that I didnít quit drinking too LATE.
Your comments would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
