Whenever I see a doctor, nurse, radiographer etc, I always engage in some form of conversion. Radiologists particularly, as they tend to give you more information than the person who requested the X-ray.
Yesterday I asked my gp ( not usual one, I've already asked him) what were his views on TSM and nalmafene/naltrexone. He actually said he hadn't a clue what I was talking about!
I explained briefly, and to be fair, he did Google TSM and had a quick glance at the screen. He then asked me why I wanted to know as I was an intelligent person and surely didn't believe you could take a pill (he'd never heard of either) and an hour or two later drink alcohol. He said he'd be a multi millionaire if he'd thought of something like that!.
I then made the mistake of mentioning this forum. Apparently folks we are all looking for excuses to drink and we'd all be better off going somewhere reputable like AA or addaction or an ARC. ARCs in particular, are very good as they have proper trained counsellors who are experts in dealing with drug addicts and alcoholics!!! I give up.
Oh before I go, there's no such thing as AUD. It's just the latest 'buzz word' made up by some PC people for alcoholics. Alcoholics have praised using the term AUD as it makes it sound like an illness we can't help, rather than a self induced choice to drink. We can all drink whatever and how much we want as we claim we're ill so therefore we've the perfect excuse.
I didn't know whether to laugh or cry
