I do not have celiac disease, but I recently discovered I am allergic to most grains. I have been on a gluten free diet for about 3 weeks now and am feeling much better in countless ways. One thing I have noticed, however, is that alcohol seems to affect me much more. My tolerance seems to have gone out the window. I had a few glasses of wine a few nights ago and got blitzed. Has anyone else found this to be so, or am I imagining this?

OH YES!!!!!! - I posted about this several months ago because I noticed that I was completely hammered after one or two drinks since I went gluten-free. Now I was a lightweight to begin with, but I could handle a few glasses of wine with no problem. Now? Forget it, two glasses of wine at dinner will have me under the table. My fiance jokes that now I'm an even cheaper date! :) Someone on here suggested that I tried potato vodka - I bought a bottle and its been sitting in my garage (frankly I've been too tired to drink) but I will try some and let you know if it makes a difference!

Trust me :rolleyes: I've gone the other way.

3 glasses of wine and I was slurring my words, managed to do a bottle last night while cooking dinner and wasn't slurring... Yeah I know I shouldn't be drinking yet, couldn't help myself though B)

You just make me laugh, Mr. Happy! :lol: I am the same way...I could not tolerate alcohol at all pre-diagnosis but now that I have healed nicely, I can drink my wine and handle it just fine. I still don't drink a lot because I am a lightweight but I do enjoy a glass or two, especially while cooking! Makes it all the more fun!

Nothing wrong with drinking wine at first, as long as it doesn't make you sick. ;)

I could not drink at all while I was very ill for a few years, but now that I have healed, well....CHEERS!

I will admit, however, that my days of 2 painfully dry martinis (and by that, I mean absolutely no vermouth at all) are over.

I've turned into a wimp. I am also a lot smaller than I used to be, so maybe that's part of it. In any case, a small one very cold one is just right.

And absolutely almost always while making dinner. :)

Unless it is champagne and then, 3 glasses. No clue why the difference.

Huh. I've been saying, for me, it's the opposite. Alcohol just doesn't seem to have the effect it had before. I feel like when I do drink, I can drink a lot more and still not catch a buzz like I used to. It's like my body metabolizes it differently or something now. My husband, of course, tells me I'm wrong but I swear it's the truth.

The last time I had a few cocktails, I had Three Olives Grape vodka - which I confirmed was gluten free via their website. I don't know what got me that night (because I made my own dinner) but holy moly did I get glutened BAD.

I'm to the point that I just don't even want to drink anymore....and that STINKS.

If it helps, I have had success with Tito's and Vikingfjord vodkas. Have not had Ciroc, but other people have reported good experiences with it.

Put me down as a new cheap date. I used to drink like a fish, to the point where it's like 'Shouldn't you have thrown up by now? That's wierd.' And now it takes two drinks of vodka and water or two glasses of wine and I'm hammered. I try to enjoy the fact that it takes less money now...
