I responded when I wasn’t entirely awake, and in a hurry, but I made it seem like I have done it this entire time. No, I haven’t, like Sue, I went from Jan. to my birthday last year before I even had an ounce of alcohol, my birthday is in July, and even in July, I only had a couple drinks. Then, about the holidays, I decided to try it a bit more. I did overdo it in late October because my best friend’s mom rented a cabin to go on wine trials down here for her 30th. So, I did fall pretty hard the next day.
Then, about the holidays, I drank one glass of wine at Thanksgiving and Christmas. New Year’s was a mess up. Then, after New year’s, I was like, I think maybe from before I started the candida diet, maybe I know somewhat of an idea which ones might bother me. Maybe I can treat myself once a month. Like I already did this month, last week, with a couple glasses (and they aren’t big), or even just 1 glass. Plus, I figure I don’t want to feel bad the next day, there is other things to do. I’d rather be functional. I am going to ask Bernie about it next time.
Plus, I know, I am not going to do this all the time. Before the candida diet, I was developing a problem, and felt so stressed, that I would come home, and be like my partner, have a drink every night! ahhhh! But I figure now, it might be nice to have a little treat once a month.
Yisucks, the couple times, I have messed up, I have told Bernie. He hasn’t said too much, but has gave me suggestions to deal with it better. Plus, I know I have anxiety and cortisol problems, but he has given me supplements to deal with it more, and I believe it is getting better. I have found these supplements and drinking a couple teas to more effective.
I just figured, like you, this year, that I missed alcohol, and I just want to try and see which ones I can handle and not. I guess after the holidays, I was just missing it, too. I am going to ask him in a couple weeks when I consult.
