    I was warned too by the alcohol issue during my psych eval. I did read the Canadian study about it, was scary to say the least. Basically it was how people go from food addiction to alcoholism. But the scary part was about the suicide risks. I must say it's hard to see the link but it's been studied..

    At least you saw there was a problem and you addressed it!

    For me it's chocolate...I have to be extra careful or I would be eating a full size bar each day. Or even several bars...who knows..

    And to be true, lucky my stomach can't take alcohol I don't have to think about it. I've always been keeping my distances, because there is several people who died from alcoholism in my family and I knew the risk was nearby. So even if everyone was always drinking around me, I always stopped at one glass, and wouldn't even drink once a month. I was always the designated driver..

    Take care!
    You just read my like a book.. I wish I had came here during that time and to receive comfort and understanding. Alcohol was like swinging in Jet black ink... Any yes the negative thoughts..... I had to go to detox.... Thank you dearly for this.....
