Hi, I've recently become terrified of the long term effects of alcohol.
I'm an 18 year old male and have been getting drunk once a night for two years. I only drink to get drunk which is usually 10 drinks.
However, what I'm really worried about is, when I was 17, I would drink about 5 shots of Vodka 3 to 4 days of the week, for 2 months straight, I stopped that and then used benzos for a week or 2. On top of that I smoked weed once a week, and was also on 90 mg of mirtazapine everyday (which I've stopped)
I had no idea how unhealthy this was...I'm worried the effects might be starting to show now.
around 4 months ago Alcohol lost its euphoric effect, it just makes me feel sick and dizzy, (at around 10 drinks)
My friends say I look tired all the time (Which I hate) but this could be due to being sleep deprived. However, I noticed alcohol reeeally upsets my stomach now. Especially the day after with terrible diarrhoea. THIS NEVER USED TO HAPPEN.
Have i developed a fatty liver????
I want to substitute alcohol for different drugs. like a small amount of mdma once a month, codeine and benzos, in a routine and responsibly so my body isn't hurt too much. I have taken a lot of benzo's and valium in my life. Is this a stupid alternative? are these drugs worse for your health is low amounts? have the first signs of liver damage kicked in? Do I stay away from alcohol completely now? what are the signs that I need to stop drinking?
I know my use of alcohol isn't too bad but on top of alot of other drugs and antidepressants idk.
please help because I'm terrified of one day doing irreversible damage.
