A Little About Me

 

 

Anxiety and alcohol ruined my life. Baclofen saved it. My life with anxiety, alcohol and baclofen is discussed in great detail in

 

Booze, Baclofen & Me

 

 

 

 

I was was born in Manchester, England in 1961. Following Grammar School, I entered the University of Manchester, qualifying in Medicine (MB,ChB) in 1984. After a year as House Surgeon and House Physician on Professorial Units, and a year as Lecturer in Anatomy & Demonstrator in Human Dissection at the University of Manchester, I then entered Surgical training within the Manchester Teaching Hospitals.

I obtained the prestigious Fellowship Of The Royal College Of Surgeons (FRCS) at the first attempt, and was honoured to be made the British Digestive Foundation Research Fellow; where he worked on acute pancreatitis. I was also made the Inaugural Tutor in Surgical Gastroenterology in the University of Manchester – a post created for me.

 

My surgical specialties were in inflammatory bowel disease and obesity.

 

In 1991, I entered the Law School in the University of Leeds, UK; qualifying with an honours degree in Law (LLB(hons)) after only 2 years study.

 

I am the co-author of a major surgical textbook (Pelvic Pouch Procedures, Butterworth-Heinemann, 1991), and have published more than 50 academic medical and legal papers, poster and oral presentations.

 

I have also appeared on numerous television and radio programmes and been in many newspaper and magazine articles.

That all sounds pretty good, doesn't it? However, I am also an alcoholic. And through alcohol, I have managed to compromise, or lose, much of what I have achieved.

 

To put it simply, I have a trait where I suffer chronic anxiety, low confidence, low self-esteem, feelings of inadequacy etc. Stress is something with which I find it hard to cope. Maybe surgery and law weren't the best career choices!!

 

Not even my closest family really knew what I was going through.

During this period of fantastic highs and unbelievable lows, I have managed to find three really beautiful, lovely and supportive women. And managed to lose two of them, and very nearly lost the third.

 

I have managed to build highly successful careers in two of the most competitive and academically challenging professions. And managed to lose them.

 

I have managed to make two fortunes. And managed to lose them.

 

I have managed to build amazing periods of comfort and security and happiness. And managed to lose them.

 

They are all discussed in great, and honest, detail in Booze, Baclofen & Me.

 

So, why did I set up the Baclofen 4 alcoholism web site? Pure and simple, I needed this information myself. And most of it was not all that easy to find. And it most certainly was not collated into a 'user-friendly' form. I decided that, if I was doing it for myself, I might as well make it available to others. Through the web site, I have been privileged to hear hundreds upon hundreds on your stories and experiences.

 

It is this experience that I feel I can bring to Baclofen and our alcoholism.

 

Through Baclofen, I have found my new life. For several years now, I’ve been totally alcohol indifferent.

 

But it is a very big job to help you all too, and I will need your help and assistance.

 

Please, use my web site, and let’s get better together.

 

After all, together, we ARE most definitely stronger.
