    Thx, I was looking at them the other day and then saw the price on test strips and said F*** that! Actually since I was diagnosed pre-diabetic last year, thought about asking the doc to give me an Rx and see if my ins. would pay for it.

    A lot of recovering alcoholics are big sugar addicts because they're unconsciously using it as a replacement. Sugar addiction is probably, in many cases, a precursor to alcohol addiction.

    Tom Naughton is interesting on this:

    He's also talking about Nora Gedgaudas' book there, already mentioned in this thread. Sure, worth a look. Nora herself does neurofeedback (a kind of biofeedback for the brain) as well as nutrition. I'd guess that she'd probably advise any recovering alcoholic to try that if they possibly can. It has been used treating alcoholics with pretty impressive success. You might like to try Nora's podcast number 41, available here:

    Thank you!

    I've been finding myself craving sweets lately, which is really out of character for me as I've never really cared for sweet treats. I figured the alcohol had something to do with it.

    I have so many things to look into Thanks so much everyone.
