    This is interesting in that since I have given up sugar, grains, etc I longer have alcohol cravings either.

    Congratulations! Its day 23 without drinking and day 22 eating primal for me.

    There's always been a link between alcohol consumption and poor eating habits for me, but its all the crap I eat when hungover. I never considered a link in the other direction.

    Kinda makes sense though, I've never been one for sugary drinks, but what I did drink was mostly made from grains.

    I started the GAPS diet in late December and am not having any sugar (occasionally minuscule amounts of honey) or starches, I thought I would seriously miss the wine I usually had with dinner but I haven't missed it. I find this odd because I was never a big fan of sweets. I know when my father stopped drinking he got very into sweets.

    Kudos to all of you that have given up alcohol!

    I really don't believe alcoholism to be a by product of a bad diet, but having a healthy lifestyle overall can make it easier to overcome the addiction.

    I am definitely kicking my addiction to both. Just seems the more stress I have on any given day, the more I want a glass of wine.

    In the 7 weeks I've been following PB I've only consumed wine 4 times compared to drinking 3-4 times per week pre-PB. I don't miss it or crave it. The 4 times I drank were in social situations out to dinner where the wine was free flowing.

    Even on my most stressful day I didn't crave alcohol.

    Great to hear!

    I recently 2 days ago decided that my drinking was getting outta control & not helping me at all, have started going Paleo, Alkine Green drink & lots of h2o & don't seem to have those urges i did after taking down a big bowl of pasta or pizza. Like i said just started & reason was to CHANGE my life in ALL aspects. Will be bumping up the workouts soon, but focusing on the intake of foods & liquids right now.

    Thanks again for the thread
