Excessive drinking is definitely bad for your health. So many issues can develop from alcohol consumption. The liver takes its toll from fatty liver disease to sorosis, which leads to requiring a liver transplant or death.
I will say this... I have been in recovery for almost 2 years... I’m so proud of myself for the continued progress I make... addiction has no preference... it has no standards... it will consume you before you realize it... and by the time you realize it, it’s got you by the balls... don’t feel like a pussy... feel like a man for being able to maintain your life without the need for any substance.
Oh it be possible, it is life-threatening and the end ain't pleasant. If he survives (good chance of survival from single bout), further smoking and alcohol use after it subsides (may require surgery) greatly increases the risk of death.
