The reason we feel good with alcohol is:-
1.Because it is a central nervous system depressant, and 'takes away the pain' temporally at first hit. However it will cause Depression eventually.
2.When we have a candida overgrowth, in my opinion, it adapts to use alcohol as a food rather better than other sugars and carbohydrates. Many old alcoholics eat very little, having only cravings for booze, while becoming physically more and more ill from the poisons given off by the candida.
So the craving is two fold. Psychological and physical.
My suggestion would be to use Dr Bach's Rescue Remedy. 25 drops in a 1 and a half litre bottle of still spring water. Drink this every day through the day to feel more calm and in control. Also add 15 drops any of the other remedies that are particularly appropriate to you. After a week or so booze will not be such an issue and you will feel more like changing your diet, but expect to have a good cry, which will release tension and give a different perspective afterwards. Good Luck. Love and Light . Deotima.
