Story

This year we found out that Dad is in stage 4 liver failure & will need a complete liver transplant.
This transplant would offer Dad a second chance at life. But is a huge operation & comes with big risks.
Dad has already stopped drinking any alcohol and is taking steps to make his self healthy enough for the big operation that awaits him.
Previously I walked 10k+ steps every day for a month to raise money for the hospice who cared for my Biological Father.
For the next 12 months from now 05/06/2018 till 05/06/2019 I will refrain from Drinking any alcohol, to support my second Dad with his lifestyle change.
The inescapable fact is booze causes a lot of health issues plus foul moods, crazy sugar cravings, poor sleep, unpleasant toilet habits and poor concentration. Booze also massively contributes to depression and anxiety. Whilst we seek its numbing qualities to ease mood, booze is playing a cruel game. It is medically classed as a depressant, and over time it depresses your natural body chemistry and leads to that gnawing anxiety and heaviness.
The good news is our bodies LOVE being booze-free and respond really quickly. The lift in mood and depression is one to the key reasons people continue to stay booze free, because the natural high feels so damn good!
your liver is working overtime, clearing the alcohol from your bloodstream to prevent alcohol poisoning. Yep! Booze is poison and the liver has to alter its chemical structure so it doesn’t kill us – changing alcohol to acetaldehyde and then acetate.
Acetaldehyde, a highly toxic substance and a known carcinogen, so although acetaldehyde exists in the body only for a brief time before it is further broken down into acetate, it has the potential to cause significant damage. You may experience nausea and tremor as your body deals with all this. At the time your pancreas also starts producing extra insulin, which causes intense carb cravings.
After already loosing one parent I can't deal with loosing another
