just be happy, I am 33 happily married w 3 chidren, class mom, brownie leader, on the pta. a"normal" person. I rarely drank before surgery & now I can't because about 2 years ago it became a huge problem for me. I would have 8,9,10 drinks!!! everynight!!!! no one would have though that I was drinking that much, no one from my daily life would have imagined me so dysfunction. but I was it was me, a totally functional alcoholic. I saw the problem & stopped, its a problem for many who had the surgery. and believe me we all think "it won't be me" but its a transferance issue, I used to eat & now I can't so I replce eating w something else.
best of luck to you & my advice is just stay away from the alchol
