    So on new years eve i decided to go to my cousins, for a drink.
    This is what i remember happening, we shouted happy new year, then i woke up in the hospital on january the 2nd, apparently i drank a litre of vodka in about 30 seconds, i don't remember doing this it may be an exaggeration. I then passed out for 19 hours laying in the same position, which resulted in my shoulder muscle 'dying' due to lack of oxygen getting to it, i suffered from crazy withdrawal syptoms, my entire body shaking, i was constantly in an incredible amount of pain and i could barely talk.

    I guess the moral of the story children is stay far far away from vodka.

    I do doing ok now, if any of you care, my shoulder is on the mend, still looks huge though, still got the shakes and my voice is still a bit slow and slurred and i'm still in pain.

    I hope your new year was better than mine

    Hi Lee,

    I am sorry you had to go through that....I have a feeling I will associate vodka with this story if anyone ever offers me some in the future. Thanks for the heads-up! Wishing you the best as you recover from the symptoms, plus I am glad the pain is lessening and you are healing. :hug: Happy belated new year! :]

    Responsibility with it is incredibly essential when it comes to alcohol.
