No More Wine For Me.

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, we went wine tasting yesterday - was our first "fun" day in a while.

I did all the smart things - ate well and hydrated the day before, ate breakfast, packed a lunch for us....

And I got so sick. The sickest I've ever been from drinking. Ever.

It took 12 hours of vomiting to even hold down water.

I never want to see or smell or drink wine again. And I love wine. Loved wine.

I'm finally eating a little - I really miss my hangover cure if an egg mcmuffin and dr. Pepper. Hubby went out at 11:30 last night for Gatorade....just sent him to the store for hamburger fixings and dr. Pepper....I really need a greasy meaty hamburger.

Ugh. Anyway, just my $0.02-be careful with the alcohol if you're still healing. You may have a strong, unexpected reaction.

Yeah. I tried tequila a while back. I had two drinks over the course of about three hours. Then I went home and threw them up. Never again!

Yeah...your tolerance does change after going gluten free. :ph34r:

Been there, done that. Blacking out in the shower! Scared the hell out of my then boyfriend, who is now my fiance. He took it like such a champ, though. *Shudders* It took me two years and a trip to Europe to convince me of the merits of red wine after that little experiment.

If you can buy Kinickkinick "engish muffins" they make decent homemade egg mcmuffins. I put english muffins in quotes because, although they call them english muffins they are closer in texture to a biscuit, not really an English but not a biscuit either, yet they make a decent breakfast sandwhich. I also like Udi's bagels for making breakfast sammies.

For the greasy hamburger go to a Five Guys (if you have one) and ask them to make it for you with lettuce wedges instead of buns. The only thing in Five Guys with gluten is the buns. If you tell them you have an "allergy" to the buns they will change their gloves and be really careful. The greasy (yummy) fries are safe too because that's all they fry there.

Hope you get over the hangover soon!

Same here, but with vodka. I used to down liquor like a champ, out drink everyone and still walk in a straight line and speak coherently. A few weeks back, I had gone out, and gotten sick cause apparently my tolerance changed. I haven't gotten sick from drinking in about 4 years. I'm not drinking again. I said that when I was 19, and it's 9 years later, and I actually mean it!

Sad part is I didn't drink that much - only hit 3 wineries.

We would usually hit 7 and then go out for dinner and drink more.

Probably didn't help that one was sweet wines. Ugh. Don't want to think about it.

Same here, alcohol has become a real issue. Feels like it is going directly to my veins like I have no tolerance for it. It makes my Ataxia worse. I had some champagne with crab legs the other night, something I have not had in months, an old favorite. Not good! I was so dizzy the next day. It wasn't a dizzy from gluten, almost like I was drunk but I wasn't. I wasn't dehydrated, wasn't feeling anything associated with that. Guessing there's alot of healing yet, or maybe this is how it always will be.

I can definitely attest to this. Been gluten-free almost 3 years. I'm 21 btw and I can't drink - kinda sucks

strange! I didn't know this was a symptom. If I drink on an empty stomach I get fuzzy after just one drink, when usually it takes two or three, but I haven't noticed a major difference in my alcohol tolerance. I was diagnosed with celiac maybe eight months after turning 21 so I'd already been drinking a fair bit before I went gluten free.

I have had to give up alcohol though because of a persistent problem with acid reflux... :( and on my elimination diet gin is the only alcohol I can have that I actually like, but gin is soooo expensive here! so I just abstain.

Have you considered CC from other areas not just the wine? I've been to a several wineries in the past and in addition to the wine they usually serve cheese and crackers or some type of snack or allow people to bring in their own meals. So surfaces could be cross contaminated. Are you sensitive to sulfites/sulfates? I know that those are in some wines. Being sick for 12 hrs just from drinking sounds like food poisoning or a stomach bug not alcohol unless you had alcohol poisoning in which case you should have gone to the ER immediately.

In this case I doubt it. New glass and small tasting room...

Took our glass to the next winery where it was washed...again, very quiet.

Third place, same thing...

These wineries are small and not like Napa/Sonoma. We took our own food, ate it outside on the patio on top of the cooler. Very low cc opportunity.

It was like someone injected alcohol in my brain. It wasn't food poisoning - hubby was fine. We ate the same thing. Drank the same thing.

I simply can not handle more than one drink anymore. Sulfates may be an issue....who knows. It will be a while until I test the theory.

Wow...thanks for the warning, I had no idea this could be an issue. Been off alcohol for awhile because of just generally trying to "purify" my system, but if/when I drink another glass of wine I'll be very careful & take it slooooow.

I havn'et had any wine since going gluten free the past 6 weeks... I am too afraid to feel bad the next day!!! Especially after reading this!! :) But, when going through a bunch of fertility treatments (when we'd get that negative pregnancy test), I found the organic wines (which I have only found 3 brands of them that are truely organic) AND if they are sulfite free... no hangover! :) At least when drank in moderation! Someday I might brave it again!!!

Wow...this is really interesting. I thought it was just me. I haven't gotten sick from drinking, but man do I get buzzed so easily now.

I noticed I get buzzed faster on things that are fermented; wine and sake. I think 2 glasses of wine will have me on the floor, and maybe 2 little shots of sake will do the same, no matter how much I've eating. My tolerance to liquor is also a lot lower, but hey... it's cheaper this way. :P

Getting buzzed on alcohol faster...I wonder if it's because when your digestive system heals, you digest everything into your system faster, including alcohol?

Ok I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to you, but I'm so glad that it's not just me. Over the summer I was drinking white wine (which is normal for me in the summer). Now I haven't always had the greatest tolerance anyway, but I had 2.5 glasses and was REALLY sick. Never have I thrown up from drinking wine before. AND I ate a huge dinner. Now I have to be very careful when going out for drinks. Only time I have more than one is when I have a DD to take my sorry butt home. :-)
