"Admission to hospital with complications from liver disease"

About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary / General medicine

(as a volunteer/advocate),

I was admitted to hospital to have fluid drained out of my stomach. Ward 17 referred me to the hospital alcohol service. The hospital alcohol nurses supported me whilst I was on the ward. We had a good chat.

I find their support useful but it is hard to change. I am doing alright but it's still hard.

I have support from a friend who is sober which helps, they are a good role model. I know I have to be self motivated.
