Isa,
How awful for you...I'm so very sorry.

I'll have a glass of wine if I'm out to dinner with friends or on a special occasion.  I had to learn to drink red after I started BTDing years ago.  I like to sip a nice glass of merlot or pinot noir or try some other red.  When I was younger I drank whatever was popular at the time although I never liked the taste of beer so I rarely had any of that. I went through the midori collatas back in the 80s e.g.

I drink very occasionally, when we go out and I might have a vodka with pineapple juice or a red wine. Wine gives me an instant flush of heat and I can't cool down for hours (good when it is -30 out, not so good when it is +30)

I hate the taste of beer, but in the summer I will have a few vodka coolers.  I generally feel physically ill if I have more than 3 drinks.  I get really stuffed up, headache, runny nose and eyes and totally lethargic.

My now legal 18 year old has real issues if he drinks.  The other night he had some friends over to our house and he had 5 beers (he counted and my husband counted), he spend an hour upchucking in the morning before he had to go to work.  Like my husband said, at least he is a cheap drunk and won't spend a ton of money on drinking like other 18 year olds.

Being an O   I don't drink any alcohol.   The day isn't long enough to get all the water i want,
so alcohol would use up my water time.  I don't drink anything during eating times.

I am really tough on myself diet wise --nothing is cooked except buffalo lightly browned on each side.

  I am very much into btd.   NO more  ARTHRITIS

I don't particularly like the taste of most forms of alcohol, including wine and beer (actually, I've never even tasted beer -- it smells so awful, how can you willingly put it in your mouth?. I do like a good margarita, and a variety of other drinks that can be made to be sweet, but don't drink them much. After all, if I like virgin drinks (like pina coladas or daiquiris), why not just drink them and avoid the hard liquor?

I don't drink any alcohol.  I will  take a sip for a toast...but...
a real drink makes me feel weird and silly.  I start laughing uncontrollably
when the warmth of the alcohol starts to circulate throughout my body...but,then, within a short while, I feel super tired and I want to go to sleep.  If do fall asleep, I will wake up in the middle of the night and feel freaked out!

I've tried organic wines...maybe 1/2 glass with dinner and was a bit less reactive.

I'm wondering if it's the alcohol or the sulfites...or something else.

I have a sister who reacts like me to alcohol....and another sister who drinks
1/2 a bottle of red wine every night...We're all blood type A.

   If I ever meet ya, I'm gettin' you a drink girl
The icky feelings are prob from the sulfites. FWIU, all wines contain sulfites naturally. No way to get around that. Some are added or pick up more ( not sure how that goes ), during the process I believe. I don't do well w/ wine either, especially red wine, which is strange because that's okay for O's. Oh well, there's always margaritas
( no, no, I think I saw a shoe go by my head......ahhhhhhhhh!!!! )

I don't seem to handle alcohol well. I've noticed I get low blood sugar easily from it and then have to eat more to counteract that. I also feel like the alcohol enters my bloodstream quickly and always try to make sure I'm eating something substantial when I drink. So I am drinking less and less. But I do enjoy the taste of wine and mixed drinks. In fact I enjoy the taste of certain drinks so much that people really wonder about me. Margaritas can be SOOOO amazing. It's also easy to ruin a margarita. Beer has never appealed to me. The smell of beer brewing is sickening to me!

Lola, maybe you actually meant bourbon is made from corn.....vodka is made from ...well, wheat, potatoes, anything really, even, now, grapes....but it is bourbon ("corn whiskey") that is made from corn or part corn.

I believe Smirnoff, though, is made from corn, which is unusual. I think wheat is the most common grain used, but, yeah, it is now made from so many things--even maple syrup.

Vodka is made from Potatoes, right?  WRONG!  While there may be premium vodkas still made from potato, the average (aka cheap) vodka is made from Corn.  Yes corn.  My instant hives are proof, but if you need more, visit:

When I drink, I probably have 1 oz/hr over 4-5 hours, sometimes more, sometimes less. I've never been drunk, and I don't drink often.

HOWEVER, I have a significant liquor collection... plain vodka, flavoured vodka, tequila, dark rum, light rum, 4 kinds of sour puss, 2 kinds of Alize, Soho, Peach Schnapps, Bol's Blue and Bol's Melon, Kahlua, creme de menthe, 2 kinds of Bailey's, wild strawberry, pear, and pomegranate liquers, port... possibly a few other things. Is it obvious i like to make cocktails? (The bar also tends to have about 8 different kinds of juices, many of which are blends, all of which are corn free)

Once every month or two, I have a dinner party or get together where we mix drinks. I figure my body can handle the occasional avoid of alcohol; I control my diet, my diet doesn't control me.

My husband is a Type O, and would be in the infrequent/frequent drinker category. When we're out to dinner, he's likely to get something; and he'll buy something sometimes on the weekends to drink at home -- usually wine or beer. When his mom or dad come for an extended visit, we'll usually get something (margaritas or gin-and-tonic) and have a drink every night, because they're both big social drinkers (not alcoholics -- they just like a drink every night).

I've noticed in this poll, as well as in other threads, that it seems that Type O's tend to be heavier or more frequent drinkers than other blood types; and also that Type O's tend to have more candida infections than other blood types. I think there's a connection. My husband almost definitely has candidiasis (based on symptoms and the spit test), and I think that is one of the things that gets him down, particularly when he feeds his infection beer, wine, or other alcohol. (His candida symptoms seem to be exaggerated after he drinks; and they went way down when he was totally [or nearly so] on the BTD for a few weeks -- but his improved attitude and whatnot may have been as much due to not eating wheat, corn, coffee, etc., than the alcohol.)

Perhaps it's more the candida's craving alcohol (or other things it feeds off of) that makes some people alcoholics. Just some ruminating I've done in the past year...

Can you explain the spit test? I'd like to try it.
