Photos reveal end-of-life for 35yo mother who drank 40 beers a day

Beverly Pickorer had been a heavy drinker for most of her young adult life, eventually getting to the point where she was drinking, on average, 40 beers each day, as reported by the Sheffield Telegraph.

-More than once wanted to cut down or stop drinking, or tried to, but couldn’t?

-Spent a lot of time drinking? Or being sick or getting over the aftereffects?

-Found that drinking — or being sick from drinking — often interfered with taking care of your home or family? Or caused job troubles? Or school problems?

-Continued to drink even though it was causing trouble with your family or friends?

-Given up or cut back on activities that were important or interesting to you, or gave you pleasure, in order to drink?

-More than once gotten into situations while or after drinking that increased your chances of getting hurt (such as driving, swimming, using machinery, walking in a dangerous area, or having unsafe sex)?

-Continued to drink even though it was making you feel depressed or anxious or adding to another health problem? Or after having had a memory blackout?

-Had to drink much more than you once did to get the effect you want? Or found that your usual number of drinks had much less effect than before?

-Found that when the effects of alcohol were wearing off, you had withdrawal symptoms, such as trouble sleeping, shakiness, irritability, anxiety, depression, restlessness, nausea, or sweating? Or sensed things that were not there?”

Pickorer’s story is a harsh reminder that the traumas of life can sometimes lead individuals down self-destructive paths, but treatment and recovery are still possible if the problem is addressed soon enough. The crippling stigma surrounding alcohol abuse can oftentimes keep suffers from seeking the help they need for fear of the judgment they will receive.
