    22 year old dies of liver failure - refused transplant

    I had hear of this guy, Gary who started drinking at 13 years (like many of us here), unfortunately for him it damaged him irreparably.
    He died aged 22 years young ....

    The doctors in most countries now operate on a system of self-help for health. To be eligible for a liver transplant he had to be dry or stop drinking that is for 6 months.

    He couldn't do it.

    Could you ? if your life depended on it .....

    I truly hope he has found peace now.

    I know first hand how this disease grips you, and only when YOU have it clear in your own mind can you even have a go at stopping drinking...

    Thank you God for helping me stop drinking alcohol.

    Heavenly.....lived in Germany for 4 years. They don't think about drinking (mostly beer) the way people in the states do..... they have special beer for kids. ( I would imagine it's like that in most of Europe.......maybe more wine in Italy and France) You can't drink the water their.....It's a real culture shock for us yanks to see that. Ha! That's a shame about that kid......but age, that's only because he started earlier......this kind of thing can happen to any of us........IAD

    So, so sad. And looking at him and the other guy who did get a transplant only to destroy it....they look so normal. Oh wait, I have a big drinking problem and people would probably say the same. I still have this image in my mind that an alcoholic is the unwashed person on the street with a brown paper bag in hand. But I'm not like that nor do I suspect you all sad.
