 Wake Up Call for a Mother of Three Children

Joanne Patterson, a mother-of-three has to be extremely cautious not to consume any alcohol during the festive season as even one more alcoholic drink could kill her.

After breaking up with her partner, she began to drink from dawn to dusk as a way to drown her sadness. She soon began to consume three bottles of wine and many cans of lager on a daily basis.

She began to show symptoms of addiction when she began to suffer tremors if she did not get her morning alcohol shot. A couple of glasses of wine had to be gulped at that time to keep her okay.

Three years of such severe abuse led her to suffer chronic liver disease.

Doctors have warned her against another drink considering the sensitive state of her liver which could collapse anytime. She needs to consume nearly 100 tablets a week to maintain her condition.

Wanting to live at any cost, she wants her story to be an eye opener for others about the damages of excessive drinking. 'I never thought I would get this much damage from drinking. I have destroyed my life', she said.
