Weird ?

Has anyone got weird food cravings when they first stopped drinking? I barely eat but when I do I can't stop eating starburst..cheese and fruit! Just found it odd

How long since your last drink?

Your body is craving the sugar it used to get from alcohol.

I say indulge your sweet tooth.

Dairy products have a good amount of sugar in them, as well as fruit. Candy, it is sugar.

I say go with the cravings. Maybe make sure you also eat protein and vegetables, just to balance this for a healthier diet (what you consume is a diet). My sweets and over-indulgences slowed at about 8 months. At 9+ months, I am now exercising more, eating much better, and feeling terrific. I was quite lethargic for the past several months and I am not yet employed.

Heal well!

my three favorite candies are strawberry starbursts, sour apple jolly ranchers and root beer flavored lollipops.
