It's easy to judge George Best cos he's a high profile case. I'm sure there are hundreds of other alcoholic liver replacement cases who have gone back to the booze.

The fact is that he fitted all the criteria to get a new liver. He was dry for a year and a half and even volunteered to be placed at a lower place on the waiting list so it didn't look like favouritism.

I'm sure everyone already knows alcoholism is a disease from which you can't be cured.

So he started drinking again and now he's going to die for it. I don't blame him.

How many of us smoke? well I'm sure we would expect Lung disease treatment on the NHS.

yeah, but maybe i get clouded view on this as someone really close to me died of liver disease not bought on by drinking at all but couldnt find donor so, well, died.

so anyone who gets atransplant and abuses it makes me angry. i didnt take for granted the 9 pints i got given, always thankful for that, and its not like anyone had to die for it either.

alcolholism is a disease from which you cannot be cured, but with the money and help he could have taken if he chose to, he had a better quality of life etc and lots more to fill his time with than many. imHo.

Fair enough, but shouldn't you also get angry with everyone else that carries on everyday killing their liver with binge drinking and shoving a gram of who knows what up there nose every weekend, killing their lungs smoking 20 fags a day and potentially fucking their brains by artificially stimulating them with some concoction of drugs? All of which at some point in the future may take precious NHS funds, treatment and time away from the people who didn't abuse there bodies and really deserve the treatment? No? oh ok then

steady sam...

i for one, would defo stop smoking when it does affect my health.

if for instance, i lost a lung.... i'd stop, no doubt. i personally see this as very similar.

while i see and respect the points you made, and their validity, i think the man's a shit, and that may be clouding my judgement on this issue!
