I thought that this article was very interesting. It talks about the connection between alcoholism, sugar cravings, nutritional deficiencies and overgrowth of yeast in the stomache.
I have had many yeast infections (candida) during my years of drinking and some very bad stomache issues. These problems started some time after my drinking had really taken off, so to me this makes sense. I also had an eating disorder, I basicly didn't eat much at all, and when I did I often through it back up, so I fed entirely on alcohol. Talk about abusing your body...
I also went craazy on the sugar the first year or so of being sober. My blood sugar was constantly up and down, I was like a sugarjunkie!
I have felt so much better by simply avoiding refined sugar.

This is my first post even though I have been here for some time. The other sections seem to just get me down. I will introduce myself somewhere but that will be a much longer posting and I don't have time. I have found that by giving up all sugars and startches, my alcohol craving has all but disappeared. Its only been two days, but thats two days of no alcohol cravings. thanks for the article, it came at just the right time. I think that there is a lot to this. Also check out Taurine and fatty liver disease, as well as turmeric for liver repair. Also, I am in this section because I am a runner. I ran a half marathon this past november, got injured and dove deeper into the bottle. Now I am trying to climb out and aiming for a full marathon. Just need this brain of mine to rewire itself

I've been off alcohol for 50 days and off sugar for about 30 days - I felt like I needed to overhaul my health and sans sugar has made me feel great. Thanks for posting the article. I'm going to start joining the health thread now that I'm running an hour most days and feeling pretty great (mostly) about my recovery - and very passionate about my health. Lost around 5 kilos in the last 50 days btw - I think a lot was related to sugar.
Each day, I automatically and successfully get healthier and healthier.

Welcome to SR wonderfullife
Another great post Sable...I'm thinking of giving up sugar now too as I'm convinced it's perpetuating any cravings!

I don't have much to add reference that article. I think sugar is bad for many reasons, and for many reasons people are better off avoiding it.
I did want to welcome wonderfullife to SR...even though you've been here a while. Congrats on the half and good luck with the full.
Welcome workingknee as well.
