Has anyone just felt full off drinking istead of more hungry?
I feel like I eat a lot more now that I stopped drinking. Is that what you mean?
Yes, alcohol zaps my appetite, but then after a few hours goes by and it’s late at night then I’m starving. I can’t feel that full feeling since I’m still buzzed so then I overeat!
I’ve noticed if I am not eating correctly/consistently that craving alcohol becomes a thing. When I’m nourished and feel that I have all i need to “survive” it’s not as big of a problem. Addiction mimicks hunger in the sense that the body and mind have confused it with necessity. Much like we need food and water.
I ate loads more sugary foods when i stopped drinking
I have been eating sugary foods as well since becoming sober… it sucks!
Still better than drinking
Quite normal, and the cravings for sweets diminish over time, at least that seems to be the general experience here. I didn’t have a big sweet tooth when actively drinking, but craved sweets for about a month or too, if I recall. Back to normal now.
I’m hoping these cookies cravings stop soon!
