I’m on Day One again. But this time, I’m trying something different. I’ve just been to the doctor, and for the first time ever, I’ve been honest about what’s been going on. She was kind. As a medic, she immediately said I wasn’t physically dependent because I’ve been able to give up for several weeks at a time without being ill, but I was probably psychologically dependent. I reckon there’s a hair’s breadth between these two states. I’m having a full set of blood tests early next week, and am then seeing her again.
She asked me what I wanted to do. I said I want to stop drinking.
