Hi All:
Just wanted to share that I had 3 rum and water drinks for my 30th birthday this past Saturday, and I appear to be no worse. It had been 5 months since i had alcohol. All of the hard work with the diet, supplements and lifestyle changes are slowly helping me manage. Obviously I have to still be careful about alcohol but it is nice to know that I don't have to give it up for good.

MMM-

Thank you for your kinda words! I am just happy I can occasionally drink. I had Coconut Rum with water and it wasn't bad and also not acidic. It is alcohol still but I avoided making it worse! The next time I may try and have a drink is at a wedding in November. I also was able to have a gluten free/dairy free banana bread cake and a gluten free, low fat cupcake for my birthday. Again, nothing I am going to be doing often but to know that I can still have some things is reassuring. I am still working towards my goal of no symptoms. My ultimate goal is to over time, step down to a H2 blocker like zantac and have no symptoms. That is something that will take time, I know.
