Alcohol- I Think It's Making Me Congested

Recommended Posts

I know I can't have grain alcohol. I try to avoid it. I almost always drink 100% agave tequila or white wine. It seems like every time I drink - whether it's these "safe" things or something else that's grain-free - I'm still really stuffy. Is it canceling out my allergy medicine? It seems to happen a lot. Last night my friend suggested that I might be allergic to the alcohol.

I've heard something that some alcoholics are allergic to alcohol, and sometimes that's a factor in the addiction. I'm not an alcoholic, but it does run in my family (on the side that doesn't have wheat problems)... so I'm wondering if there is a link there.
