so you haven't been able to eat normally during the last week? and now your appetite is back? that's a good thing if i read your post correctly.

when I first stopped drinking i would stockpile these dark chocolate biscuits and eat about 2-3 boxes a week...my sugar cravings were off the charts....that tapered off to lots of fresh fruit and ice cream.

i always sleep better if i eat well.

My appetite came back about day 3 when I wasn't on the verge of puking and lately it's been in full force.

Fandy, I really stocked up on the fresh fruit the first week and felt great to eat so healthy. Tonight on the other hand..... mixed nuts, chocolates, strawberries, more chocolate.

xuse - glad you're eating and congrats on Day 7

I'm glad you're feeling good.

I lost weight during the last months of my drinking and it felt so good to be able to eat well and look better.

I really, really enjoyed eating the first couple weeks of sobriety. I allowed myself to indulge in some great food (love Chinese, too) and now that my appetite is back to normal, I'm starting to lose a litte weight.

It's great that you got a good night's sleep, too!! Yea for sobriety!!

I gained about 35# the last 2 years from drinking 8-10 glasses of wine per day...calculating in about 1500-2000 calories a day of extra empty sugar calories from the wine...i cut back on eating because i was steadily gaining weight.

now a days, i've lost almost 13# in the last 6 months without trying and eat well....I no longer crave the chocolates, but I sure do love a plate of pasta with cheese and red sauce...(call it gravy if your from NJ).

Food has been pretty normal for me. Although I have developed a real fetish for club soda. Crazy thing is I don't even belong to a club. I don't know how I get away with buying it, I keep expecting the store clerk to ask for a membership badge or a secret handshake.
