Hi all, I just wondered what other people's experiences with drinking alcohol are like. I used to able to have a few beers / glass or two of wine but in last two years even one glass of wine or one bottle of low alcohol beer (e.g. corona) will completely wipe me out. Usually vomiting, terrible joint pain, and absolute exhaustion follow. One glass spirits based drink (usually clear spirit) seems ok but still more tired than usual. Rarely drink now. Anyone else experience this?
How very interesting I used to drink ( a bit more than I should ) as a student in my twenties , and I could never understand that the hangovers I used to get were so much worse than that of my peers. I now find that I can't really drink much - wine is just too strong as is spirits , I can manage a low alcohol beer or something , but more than that I am so ill. The effects are muscle pain and cramps almost instantly as soon as I drink , I can almost feel my muscles being effects by the alcohol. Then I get so dehydrated , it really effects me . So I'm not so much the life and soul of the party, but I can still have fun without the alcohol ☺️
