Reaction To Wine?

Recommended Posts

This past Thursday I went to an alumni event for my college, and had 2 glasses of white wine. By the time I got home (after eating at Risotteria), I was pretty smashed. This is the second time this has happened to me. I haven't been drinking a lot of alcohol due to my healing process, so I'm wondering if my tolerance is just low, or if I am having a reaction to it.

Anyone else have these issues?

Nope but a lot of people do have grape allergies? I guess your tolerance is down or are you on any prescription meds? I don't know about being smashed on two glasses but two bottles minus 2 glasses is my normal with a decent meal... then im pretty smashed by the end. This is because my gluten-free (it typed g and f for girlfriend but I guess the board knows best) is on meds that get her sloshed off 2 glasses so I drink the rest so we can have a decent wine with the starter and main but usually I find 2 bottles is enough

Are you allergic or intolerant to casein? Wine can contain casein.

Since I get smashed on one glass of wine, and you say that you are not much of a drinkier, I would have to say that your tolerance of the alcohol is low. I hope you had a good time at the alumni event!

You may be absorbing more now that you're gluten-free. So the same amount of alcohol would seem like more :blink: .

unless there were other symptoms, it sounds just like a low alcohol tolerance. are you taking any medications that would encourage that as well (even though you don't need medication to get drunk off of two glasses of wine)?

I just thought of the inverse .... hmmm. interesting.

The funny thing is people seem incredibly sensitive to different types of alcohol. I used to drink a lof of spirits and no wine and the same amount of wine with 1/4 the alcohol would knock me out. Now I drink almost exclusivly wine and if not cider which is i guess apple wine more than beer I bet what I used to drink in spirits would knock me on my back but I drink double the amount of wine...???

I find both to be true :P Since going gluten-free, my tolerance is MUCH lower, presumably b/c my body is absorbing more of the alcohol and b/c of the healing process. (so i think it sounds like low tolerance too, i feel the same way from drinking these days and i used to be a heavy drinker). BUT, now that i drink wine instead of vodka on the rocks, it is also true that i can drink more in volume than i used to.. But it doesnt change the fact that i could get messed up off of one vodka these days, which to me says that my tolerance is much lower, even if i can drink a lot of wine. ;) Have i confused anyone?

My tolerance for alchol is also extremely low since going gluten-free. It seems as though the longer my body has had time to heal, the less alcohol it takes to get me tipsy. Wine seems to be especially potent for me.

My boyfriend is a beer drinker/brewer and I love a good dark beer, so I'd been drinking mostly beer instead of wine or liquor since we started going out 5 1/2 years ago. Since I've gone gluten-free, I've noticed that I do seem to get pretty strongly buzzed after two glasses of wine, but that the buzz feels a lot different from the beer buzz -- heh -- I think I'd been mistaking reaction for buzz. The next morning feels a whole lot different too if I've been over-imbibing -- not that I've done a whole lot of that lately, since I'm embracing health in a big way and pretty high off of feeling good, but I did have two early nights when I inadvertently drank TOO much wine because someone kept filling my glass and I wasn't keeping track -- the buzz felt too unfuzzy for me to realize what was going on.
