Stopping Alcohol Cravings

Mar 29, 2008
Although there do exist links between what you actually eat and cravings for alcohol, the food issue is not a short cut in helping us to stop drinking alcohol as other changes such as medical treatment and dietary supplements are necessary.

There is a fairly large amount of research about the potential benefits of nutritional supplements during periods of alcohol withdrawal. The greatest focus here has been on the B-complex vitamins, although all of the major vitamins (vitamins A, C, D, and E in addition to the B-complex vitamins) have been found to play a potentially helpful role.

A really helpful finding for reducing cravings for alcohol is just by cutting right back on caffine and sugar, as it was found they actually cause alcohol craving. I am afraid that when we use the term sugar that it also includes desserts, tarts, sweets and fizzy drinks. You should also take in smaller quantities of fruit and juices as well as sugar in your tea and coffee.

Caffeine too needs to be cut right out of the diet meaning no less then zero tea and coffee (unless it is decaf), and just to add insult to injury chocolate is also on the list, so just a couple of squares if you get really desperate. Funnily enough it has been proved that simple sugars and caffeine affect the blood sugar regulation and that if we are able to control the blood sugar level, we will actually reduce the alcohol (sugar) SS cravings. In a nutshell, if you are able to forget about caffeine and sugar then you are on the road to reducing alcohol craving.

The other important step to take is to make sure you are taking on a lot of nutrient-rich foods so that body really does feel good and you have full strength both mentally and physically, and also internally so that your liver can deal with the detoxification processes.

From our perspective, the very best way to accomplish this goal of nutrient richness is to fill your meal plan with as many of the World's Healthiest Foods as possible. There just aren't any foods that can bring in so many nutrients so easily. Alcohol depletes a wide range of nutrients, including B vitamins, and so it is important to ensure that your diet supplies enough.
