Can the ingredients in drinks be the cause of some cravings?
Addictions UK has received an article about food allergies and the alcoholic.
The ideas it puts forward about the roots of the illness are different from those many of us hold, even if we do believe diet plays a role in recovery.
The article would seem to go a good deal further, suggesting that some alcoholics can be allergic to the base product the alcohol is brewed from and this can manifest itself in a craving.
We would be very interested to hear the views of others. We really cannot see this leading to an alternative treatment but there are some elements that may help some who find it difficult to abstain. Please let us know what you think.
We are grateful to Demons in the Dark for the link to the article which you can find at
