There was a discussion on Soberistas about this British BBC documentary which I had never heard of before and therefore not seen.
I watched it last night and it reminded me very much of my nursing days which I talked about here. I also wrote a guest post for Veronica Valli that was my account of caring for a dying alcoholic that you can read here.
It was filmed in 2006 and is a hard-hitting, shocking and saddening account of the lives of 4 alcoholics during hospital admissions and relapse. If you wanted an insight into my nursing experience then this is a very accurate and true reflection.
Here is the link to the documentary:
Why I am I sharing it here? Because my nursing experience helps keep me on the recovery path. Although as a drinker my alcohol consumption never reached this level or had this impact on my physical health I knew that this is where I would end up if I carried on. It is a sobering ever present reminder to me and maybe it will help you stay on the path if you are wobbling or strengthen your resolve to stop if you haven’t yet.
