Thank you for your reply and encouragement! I must add I have been quite the party animal my whole life.(smoking daily and drinking 3+ times a week and drugs...). I have stopped smoking completely because of an incident I had last time I did/ for my general health and haven't drank in a while. Funny im finally able to do things legally and it's the first time I don't want to at all. I hadn't thought of this till now after reading your reply but being addicted to such vices certainly could've been why my first flush was so terrible and the bile so toxic. What I must say to you for your friend is possibly the flushes have to and will be bad/severe symptoms because with must atone for the consumption of such body deteriorating substances we consumed so frequently. So I'm ready for the next couple to be just as bad before it gets lighter and I hope your friend will be too because through suffering we will makeup/ heal the damage we self inflicted. Maybe WS will have a different answer/opinion but this is my thoughts on the matter.
