Are you participating in Dry January? Me neither, January no longer has joy.
But that does not mean that I am drinking every night either. I am not a fan of cutting something so strictly for a period of time; I don’t see that leading to healthier habits.
Even after almost 11 years, people are still surprised that I drink alcohol even though I have cancer. My answer to that is that it is already quite difficult to deal with the disease without also stopping all forms of joy.
That said, my diagnosis made me more aware of what my body might need to deal with the burden of cancer and treatments, and now I have reached a place that works for me.
However, alcohol consumption should not be something we consider only when proverbial poop hits the fan.
As we know, and they tell us very often, some lifestyle options correlate directly with certain types of cancer.
Alcohol is a risk factor for seven different types: mouth cancers, pharynx (upper throat), esophageal (food pipe), larynx (voice box), breast, intestine and liver.
You may have thought that mouth cancer was the most obvious, but alcohol enters the bloodstream, so it can affect all kinds of cells around the body.
If that isn’t revealing enough, you don’t have to drink like a fish to be at greater risk. So far, scientists see no difference between someone who drinks or distributes the units during the week.
Cancer Research UK estimates that almost 12,000 cases of cancer a year are the direct result of alcohol consumption.

Now, I understand that none of us likes to be blamed for his illness, I HATE to know that it was something I chose to do that caused my breast cancer.
But it is not the fault, this is really important information that helps us better understand this disease and a very good way to know how we can reduce our risk.

Nobody demands that you have a teetotal (don’t you have a glass of wine with a roasted dinner? I think not, thank you very much) but if you want to give yourself the best chance of not getting cancer and live a generally healthier and happier existence, then consider Your alcohol consumption makes a lot of sense.
Good luck to those who participate in Dry January, I’m taking off my hat and raising a glass for you!
