I'll have an occasional glass of wine or hard cider, or a little tequila, but it's fairly rare. I prefer a tall glass of rooibos iced or hot tea

A year and a half ago, I posted this:
Quoted from san j
...in 2008, I read Dr. D'Adamo's book, The Genotype Diet and typed myself as a Nomad. At that point, I decided to try beer, since it is a diamond Superfood for Nomads. And, indeed, I found it filling and satisfying, and that it didn't cause me to gain weight.
Now I drink anywhere from 0 to 3 beers a week - probably annually averaging about 50? Going stretches without it and then, when I have one, thinking, "This is great! Why did I forget about this again?"


Today, there is one bottle of beer in the house. It's been sitting there for many months.
Just goes to show that the polls here can be extremely momentary in their accuracy. Old, bumped-up threads can be misleading; certainly polling that is left open for years is incapable of delivering useable results.

A Beer/Wine Poll for 2009 (when this thread began) might be differently influenced than a 2013 poll. Maybe we should be focusing our polling?

Quoted from Sharon
As an AB non-secretor, I usually do everything to extremes. I used to drink way too much (red wine was my drink of choice) so I've totally cut alcohol out of my life. It's a catch 22 since non-secretors are more likely to be alcoholics yet they also get benefits from red wine.  


Reply # 7 is is as far as I needed to read to find convergence with my own experience. Though the original post stated a curiosity about tea-totalers, the subject of alcohol consumption ought to be considered here from time to time. If not for the discussion of moderate consumption vs abstinence, for the greater notion of how and why our habits evolve through the phases of our journey with BTD/GTD...  and beyond.

I drink one or two beers nearly every evening, sometimes get into a wine phase, a glass or two of wine in the evening instead of beers.  More occassionally, i will put some bourbon or tequila in water and apple juice and drink that.

I found out i am a non secretor, and beer is neutral and wine is beneficial for my blood type, though alcohol is not recommended for explorers in any form.  I could just as well do without it, but it does take the edge off after a work day and feels good after doing yard work or other sweat inducing activities, though other things do this just as well.  I find caffeine to have much more of a negative effect than alcohol for me, though my alcohol tolerance was never at a warrior level!

Sorry- Clarification:
"Focusing our polling": Tighter circumscribing of the the sampling.
Example: There's a poll for 2009 - it closes at the end of the year.
That way someone who drinks beer in 2009 but doesn't in 2013 can vote differently in a later poll. There are people who discover SWAMI and change their diets accordingly. There are people whose SWAMI recommendations change, more or less frequently, and they change their diets accordingly. Results would vary from poll to poll. And you'd end up with some interesting discoveries - such as how alcohol consumption amongst dadamo forum members changes from year to year to year...
...that sort of thing.
Unless sampling is more principled, we're not necessarily measuring anything but what respondents are practicing the day they post.

I had been in the habit of having a glass of red wine in the evening with dinner, but more and more am now not drinking during the week and having one or two at the weekend instead.

As my blood type AB father use to say," better a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy " still makes me chuckle. Do like my red wine its not listed on the teacher diet but seems to be ok for me, probably the nonie thing working for me.

This poll seems to exist to show the percentage of each bloodtype (of participants on dadamo Forum) that chooses to be a "tee-totaler".
It appears that dadamo O's and A's are somewhat more than twice as likely to ever enjoy a glass of wine, say, than to be committed to abstinence, while B's are 8x as likely to do so. Only AB's are equally likely to enjoy as to habitually abstain.
But considering that there are only 6 of them in the sample, the information is not particularly utile.  

Considering the beneficialness of red wine for the A, it's interesting that so many of them do not avail themselves of this almost medicinal treat...

definately no alcohol for me, not even cooked as in a red meat casserole which I tried last year.
this also is the same for fruit, need to keep fructose fruits to a minimum - my pancreas and liver thank me and work much better when I do the right thing, and feel much better avoiding fermented fruit beverage, ie wine etc.
I now see it as a positive, the $ I save on alcohol, I spend on vegetables and maybe, fish/seafood!
I can get my antioxidants from tumeric/ginger, vegetables, maybe blueberries when in season. an occasional goji berry now and then.

Bacchus makes his appearance here from time time- tipping the scales to 4:3. Regularly pre B/GTD, infrequently now as I just can't handle it like I used to. It feels toxic. Always did, but I'm now less willing to endure it.

Last week I gave away a six pack of Urquell that has been sitting in my fridge for over a year now. I just finally realized that I no longer have the constitution for anything gulped, quaffed, wolfed etc. Getting healthy has really set me straight about self-inflicted damage. I do miss enjoying a cold one... just not enough to go for it, and I'm fairly convinced that habits crossing into the addiction column are due to nutrition imbalances. The body seeking, but not knowing for what.

Since being on this program I have really begun to understand not only my nutritional needs, but more about my personality. I am definitely an obsessive compulsive-If I love something...I love it too much. If I open that bottle of wine with the intentions of having two glasses...it turns into my having the whole bottle!!! Maybe in time, balancing my nutritional needs will help with the weaknesses. I gave up all alcohol starting Sunday... It's not easy but I am already feeling much better. I especially have trouble sleeping but am sure that it too will pass. Maybe many other "A's" struggle with the same issues??? All of the A's that I know have most of the same personality traits...eat hard, drink hard and love like there is no tomorrow.

Funny: Amongst all the many A's I've known, I haven't seen the syndrome you ascribe (chronic, characteristic renunciation of "willpower") to them; I've seen it often amongst O's.  


BTW: "Obsessive-Compulsive" is actually a clinical term that refers to something other than the syndrome you describe.
