about the only thing I drink is coffee & Baileys and that is only when my sisters come to visit or when I feel like sitting in front of the fireplace and relaxing. For some reason I never could handle drinking, the smell of any alcohol made me queasy(I am 42), so I was always the designated driver.
My sisters got me drinking the coffee & Baileys one evening when I was down there to visit. I couldn't believe that I really liked the taste. I had a few and it really relaxed me.
Well, I am glad you are feeling better. Mixing drinks is never a good idea and I am sure you'll remember this next time!
Never regret something that made you smile!

I hope you are feeling better now, Sue.

Feeling much better thank you. But I just saw a picture of me at the party! Im hollering about something with a huge smile on my face and my arms spread out wide. I look like a total goof!
Oh well, I know now not to do that again so as to avoid a hangover like Dante's 9th circle of hell!!!
i havent touched alcohol in 7 years, and i dont feel im missing out- but at the same time, i see why you want to let your hair down and 'party' and feel 'normal'. i resent this illness for robbing me of my party days!
hope you feel better and keep it in moderation- Maz XX
Hey there guys and gals: I gotta add my two cents to the mix (with it being Christmas and all, I'll have to dig deep,lol.) I was actively self-medicating in the early 90's with alcohol because I was going through a divorce and child custody battle, and all that fun stuff while working two jobs and trying to care for children with O contribution from the Father. Where it got me, was Detox. So then I did the AA thing for six years, and if anyone out there has an alcohol problem, don't knock it, it works. Just an aside to you ladies, if you're single, especially, watch out for vultures. That's primarily why I let go of that particular life boat because male attendees from the meeting began dropping by, unannounced, "to visit". There sometimes are splinter groups that are hosted by ladies, for ladies, and they also can be helpful, although I can't speak to their continuity. (They come and go). What I got out of the whole thing was a toolbox of ways to manage my reactions, emotions and life in general. So, I'm not obsessive about drinking or not drinking, it's a very individual choice.
Having said that this hugh red stop sign jumps into my field of vision, it is, most of the medications we take to manage our pain and other symptoms can interact with the alcohol in a very unpleasant way. As a matter of fact, just looking at my own meds, I can find three that absolutely should not be taken if one is also consuming alcohol. Any ideas about that problem?Take Care and Merry Christmas to all.
