I have a few bottles in my pantry, my vodka I stuffed with vanilla beans to make vanilla essence to give away at christmas. I'm sure long term lfrv's would get seriously ill drinking.
I've never been big on drinking since nearly killing myself with alcohol as a 16yr old, luckily I just a scar
Giving up loser activities are always easier when you have a clear mind.
Booze is for emotional losers.
When I eat lfrv, alcohol and vinegar just smell like when my fruit has gone bad and I should throw it away. :D So I don't want to put this in my mouth.
I immediately lost cravings for it when I went LFRV. I have had beer a few times since, when i have i notice that half a beer hits me really hard making me both semi loopy for about an hour as well as giving me an upset stomach. Life is so much better with less toxins!
When I quit drinking alcohol, I noticed how much it was advertised on television and how often people around me drank. Television is riddled with unhealthy lifestyle habits, and of course they're centered around partying (drinking and eating slop from fast food restaurants.)
After a night of drinking, alcohol made my face itchy and greasy while dehydrating my skin; my lips/tongue felt like they were on fire; my hair would get greasy.
What's more, it seems like EVERYBODY around me is drinking or smoking or eating unhealthy (and the three go very well together.) Once you are eating fruits/greens, and exercising, while practicing self-worth -- you don't care or think about unhealthy habits.
Get the poison out of your house, and out of your mind.
I used to drink allll the time. when I went hcrv it totally lost appeal to me as well. its been 1 yr now I haven't drank n I feel great. every time I see sum1 hung over I instantly remember the feeling n say f#ck that noise.
I am a Oneness Blessing Giver, and we do this thing called deeksha every week that causes a neuro biological shift in the brain. Anyway, after having Deeksha about 30 times, I notice I am no longer interested in alcohol. I've never been big on drinking, it's disposable calories to me. I don't like the feeling it gives. But I used to kind of enjoy a g;ass of wine now and then.
So now I started LFRV, and can hardly tolerate smelling it. Bars bore me, events around alcohol I just want to run from. Wine tastes rotten.
Wow, thanks for everyone's responses! It was great to get all that insight. I had my Friday night drink this evening-the delicious Cherry Berry smoothie from Megan Elizabeth's Easy to be Raw book. :)
Beer and wine simply don't pair well with lfrv meals. Wine seems to only go well with cheese and salty olives. Beer's great with hot Mexican food or pizza. Cut out these foods and the alcohol is just not fun anymore.
