Young binge drinker (22) dies of liver failure

I can relate....



A 22-year-old man has died in hospital from liver failure after he refused to stop drinking alcohol.

Gareth Anderson, from Northern Ireland, first suffered liver problems when he was 19 and was admitted to Ulster Hospital in Belfast, the Daily Mail reports.

He was refused a liver transplant because he had not been free of alcohol for six months, and was transferred to the liver unit at King’s College Hospital in London.

At the time he reportedly made a vow to his family to stop drinking.

"I’ll never touch another drink for the rest of my life," Mr Anderson was quoted as saying.

"This is terrifying, I just want to get better and go home."

But he continued to drink and the next year he ended up in intensive care in Belfast after his kidneys failed.

His desire for alcohol was so great at one stage that he reportedly left his bed at the hospital
