Last time I had a checkup, it was a new doc. Fresh out of med school - 32 if she's a day.

I had the same experience. She told me I had to stop fapping. I asked her why.

She said "Because I'm trying to examine you!"

/I'm here all week.

CSB time

Last time I had a checkup, it was a new doc. Fresh out of med school - 32 if she's a day.

She checked my vitals and said "Well, you're over 40 now, we need to do some blood work.  Your medical history - check check check - Family medical history - scribble scribble scribble.  Hey, it says here you manage a wine bar.  How much would you say you drink?"
"Oh, a half-bottle to a bottle a day."
"Yeah..." (I'm feeling a little defensive at this point)
"OK, I'm checking everything on your liver - check check check check check check check."

I go in to the lab two days later, have 4 tubes of blood pulled, and schedule a followup.  Docs sits down next to me with a file folder and says, "I have to be honest with you.  You're over 40, you drink a half-bottle of wine or more every day, and your liver function puts mine to shame. I have nothing to tell you except 'Keep Drinking'!"

I looked at the details - she was right.  One enzyme was supposed to be 200 ppm to 400 ppm.  I was at 301.


tl;dr version - my liver is the strongest organ in my body

God Is My Co-Pirate: Unlike those who go on drinking in denial, people who put down the booze are facing up to their demons and living life without anaesthetic.

1. Most of us drink because we like the taste, not because we feel compelled to.
2. Most of are capable of distinguishing between a relaxed buzz and blackout drunk, and regulating ourselves accordingly.
3. If you're going to take a month off drinking, for God's sake, pick a better month than January - the darkest, coldest, most depressing month of the year.

Most of us are experts in most subjects, including what most people do and what most people say.  Not to mention the abilities, feelings, and opinions of most of us are mostly known by the most experts as well as most people.

once they have taken that first drink, they know they can't stop. . . . We still shrink from the idea that some human beings cannot drink safely, and that this is an illness.

I'm not in denial about my drinking habits. I just deny it to other people, like bosses or cops.
