SO, i went out with my co-workers and had one glass of red wine. mind you all, i have only been 100% raw for a few days shy of 2 weeks. well, the wine went straight to my head and i was drunk in a way that would have taken me 6 whiskys to get to prior my 100% raw transition. i now understand what people were telling me about having a lower tolerance. today, i feel totally dehydrated and hung over. it definitely wasnt worth it, but i cant say it wont happen again, but next time, i wont push myself to finish the glass and i definitely wont do it more than once or twice a month.

If you are even thinking about drinking, you might want to try finding an organic wine. I have heard that in addition to tasting better, they don't have the same kind of effects (or at least as extreme) as drinking regular wine...I can say with certainty that I prefer fresh grape juice! But that's just me. Drinking gives me migraines!

Living a lesson is far better sometime than being told - ;)

I hear you all. I thought, hey ok! WIne is raw and as long as it's organic, ok! Um, NOT ok. I had some wine last week, and again today (friends celebrating various things) and OH MY GOSH. I SOOO totally hear you about it affecting you much stronger than before eating raw. I can't do it. No matter how much I think I want to, or how I rationalize it's okaaayyy, it's raw! No way, it's NOT ok. I feel like crap. I had about 4 glasses of white wine today with mineral water mixed with it, and I do NOT feel ok tonight. THat's it-my flirting with alcohol intoxication is going the way of cooked food. It just has to be. Guess I'll have to actually face life the way it is and not escape it. I feel like I need to avoid parties and stuff, maybe for a little while until I'm solid in raw. *big sigh*. being conscious is not for the faint of heart.....
