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.

I really don't care for the taste of beer or wine at all, and with alcoholism in the family, that was just a turn off to ever getting started drinking.  I do lick the measuring spoon after I measure rum or brandy to make cakes and truffles though

I have one glass of red wine a week or so..makes me very relaxed so I know if the reservatol isn't working the alcohol is thinning the blood and helping relieve stress.  Warriors have thick blood. My dad had a stroke..He was a Warrior.

I'm thinking of eliminating alcohol entirely.  I don't drink often (couple times a month), but when I do, I'll have an entire bottle of wine.  I struggle with compulsive behaviors, and alcohol makes me more compulsive (both in terms of drinking it and the ways I act if I've had more than a glass).  

Lots and lots of alcoholism in my family:  both grandparents and mild alcoholism for my father and brother and one sister.  None of my friends drink (they're mostly buddhist), and I never miss it at social functions.  

Also, I'm quitting coffee anyway, as of this morning.  My thoughts: Why not eliminate all compulsive substances?

Now that I am older and wiser < ahem > I don't drink at all. As an O I also have high acid and got me a nice ulcer going on, so drinking isnt such a good idea.

I'm an O and I generally have half a glass of wine on Friday nights and another half a  glass on Saturday afternoons. Sometimes I'll drink a whole glassful (or rather, refill the small wine glass) We make a blessing over wine (or grape juice) at  night and in the afternoon of Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath, every Friday night and all day Saturday.) If there's a Jewish holiday, I'll have another half glass per festive meal (so 1 glass per day) on those "weekdays" as well.

Occasionally, I'm stuck with only white wine in the house on a Friday night (an avoid for me.) When that happens, I have one sip instead of a glassful.

  My thoughts: Why not eliminate all compulsive substances?  


Oh, shucks.  You want me to give up my beloved mustard greens?

Just kidding, of course.

I used to believe one should not partake of anything that might become addictive.  Then I got older and wiser too   (ha) and realized it actually was better all around (especially for my judgmental attitude) to be moderate in all things and be a little more careful what I require or condemn.  Not saying anybody else is doing this, I'm just saying where I am now, if it matters to anybody.

For me alcohol is not anything evil - but something very pleasurable
- something I enjoy with good food.
I have never been a heavy drinker - not even when I was a silly teen.
I have just always enjoyed a nice glass of red wine or 2 in the weekend when I cook better /nicer food.

My mum and stepdad both O types drink a bit to much imho
Not that they are alchoholics- but they just use wine more for its relaxing effect/  to get down after a strssful week = I think they drink too much at the time-maybe 3-5 glasses.

My sister B type and I hardly ever drink more than 1-2 glass at the time
My dad (AB) was the same 1-2 glasse and t was connected with pleasure - enjoying the flavour more than its effect.

I find it hard to imagine a life without the flavour of good wine... but that is just me.

I usually have a glass of white wine in the evening a couple times a week.  At a party I will tend to drink a bit more.  Occasionally Ill break down and have a rum & coke for old times sake or when I dont like the quality of the wine, but the corn syrup is what does me in, not the rum.

Four bourbon and cokes each friday night. 2 for each half of the football.  

Generally always regret it in the morning.  

In the non-football season I'd be lucky to have one drink a month and that would more than likely be a glass of wine. I don't know why the football brings out the bourbon drinker in me but I guess it has something to do with slinging off at the refs.  .

I can't get drunk though. That kills me. I take days to recover from even the most mildly annebriated states. As it is now, saturday mornings run at a slightly slower pace than the rest of the week and that's with the bourbon being only about 5% alcohol. I'd be a mess if it was any stronger.

I really shouldn't drink at all but in winter, the friday night "wind down" is just too alluring.  . One day I'll learn.

must tell you something..sad.. this morning I found one of my clients dead in her bathroom....due to alc. intake but in highest quantities..... ......it was a terrible picture... folks
alc. consumtion not only affects your liver and stomach, but your whole body.... in later years it might create so called sophagus varicen and this leads to inetrnal and external bleedings...really dangerous coz you don't feel anything before it starts.....!!!
I only can warn.... not to overdo..........

I feel awful..... .........

I went with my date to one fraternity party in college.  It was the last one I went to because I thought that was just the silliest thing I ever saw with everyone chug-a-lugging their beers just to see who could hold the most beer.  My viewpoint hasn't changed to this day.  

I do drink a glass of merlot with dinner every day these days and it seems to make dinner quite special.  Hah, especially since my husband has taken over the cooking.  Life is good!

Will sip a little red wine for the health benefits, but other than that I hate the taste. I guess my Super Taster status prevents me from liking it.

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.

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.

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


   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.

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...

Alcoholism runs strongly in my family, so I stay away from the stuff myself.  I've seen what alcoholism does to people and families and it is not worth flirting with that for me.  That said, I do love red wine, sherry and my all time fave, gin and tonic.  *sigh*  Still, I don't miss 'em enough to risk tripping the family gene and, to use Dr. D.'s maaaaahvelous "town hall" metaphor, allowing it to get all vociferous and controlling at the town hall.  Currently, it is sleeping peacefully in a back pew and I want to keep it that way.

I'm a non-secretor and there is apparently a link between nonniehood and alcoholism.  I'll bet all the family members of mine who are or were (and I say "were" because of death, not because anyone who is an alcoholic can ever put that into past tense status in life; you can only be in "recovery", never "recovered") alcoholics also sport the non-secretor gene.

Ok, the spit test -- I read it on some candida website several months ago; and there may be other variations, but here's what they said...

Get bottled water (not tap -- not sure why), and let it get room temperature. First thing in the morning, fill a glass with the bottled water and spit into. If you have candida, your spit will soon look pretty gross -- have "legs" (strands hanging down through the water), cloudy, or speckled. If you don't have candida, your spit will look clear.

My husband and I did this, and his almost instantly had all of the grossness, while mine was nearly crystal clear. Same bottle of water; two clean glasses. I figure there has to be something to it, then. Surely there are better and more accurate tests, but I can't complain about the cost of this one!

You spit into a glass of tap water, just saliva, of course, let it set for several hours and if it grows what looks like tentacles or octopus legs you have candidas.   Very easy, but looks gross!

I like my red wine, usually have a glass when we go out for dinner.  I'll open a bottle of wine at home and it will take me a couple of weeks to finish it.

I haven't had any alcohol since I've been on the BTD, but voted for Type A infrequent/frequent.

I go through "dry spells"such as now, where I will go for weeks without having anything to drink.  Just don't have the desire to do so.   That period usually passes when I'm cooking something or doing something and think that a glass of wine would go really good with XXXXX right about now.  I had one of those moments last night for the first time in awhile.

When I do drink, its usually two glasses of red wine.  I've never been a one-glass-of-wine-in-the-evening drinker.  There have been times in the past where I could (and have) easily drank a bottle in one night, and that is usually what triggers my desire to not drink for awhile.

Between on-call duty at my job and some work in my kitchen (updating the shelving), I've been working all weekend.  As my on-call rotation ended in the evening, I was ready to wind down for the evening with a nice glass of merlot, but decided against it.

Instead I went out today and picked up one of my favorite merlots, but put it aside for later in the week.  Once I finish the kitchen and my mind is clear with the satisfaction of a job well done, I plan on enjoying it (in moderation).  

I am curious to see if the changes brought about by the BTD will make me less likely to want two glasses of wine over the course of a meal/evening...or if its better that I look at perhaps avoiding wine all together.  We shall see!

For me, it's usually a little red wine (or occasionally Cosmopolitans) with my friends on a weekly basis.

Have any of you O drinkers noticed yourselves having a very bad reaction to white wine? My body seems to hate it. If I drink *any*, I have a terrible hangover the next day, even after just 2 glasses... and even the buzz itself feels malevolent, in some strange way.

Drinking red wine is something that has persisted for me despite strong understandings (not strong enough I suppose) that it is likely not wise to do much. My dad passed more or less from drinking and he was an O- like me. I'm quite moderate by comparison to his own history and these days quite a bit more moderate than my own history. The small glass of wine gets refilled more than it should most evenings just before and during the meal. Before BTD beer was also part of the routine and enjoyed especially homemade as well. Now red wine and nothing else. Perhaps it helps mask the guilt for all those animals I'm devouring.
This topic should inspire me to watch out. Thanks

Yes, I have terrible hangovers when I drink white wine so I don't drink it very often.  Also, when I do have a glass, I'll keep drinking it like it's water.  That's probably why I get a hangover, I'll keep drinking it until it's gone.

I have red wine as beneficial, but I don't really tolerate it all that well. It was a black dot on my SWAMI before I knew my secretor status, and honestly red wine feels more like a "black dot" to me than a "beneficial." I don't do well on alcohol, period.

We do serve red wine on Friday nights (and also on Jewish holidays, such as the upcoming Rosh Hashonna.) I generally buy the 4-6% alcohol wines and limit myself to one glass per evening (the alcohol equivilent of 1/2 glass "regular" wine.) That's enough to disrupt my sleep a little, and more than that leaves me hung over. I was acting quite tipsy on Passover, when I had the full 4  glasses (so the  alcohol equivilent of 2 glasses.)

No way would I drink wine every single night, or consume 2 glasses in an evening.

Being a gatherer O red is an avoid and white is a black dot.  Funny thing is the white will make me very tired in the morning and the red doesn't make any different at all.  I may drink a glass of wine before bed maybe two or three nights a week but often I won't have any at all for the week.

My red wines are usually dry and the white wines are semi. So maybe that's the reason.

I had a whole bottle of red wine last night and as of this morning I think that was a bad idea  
Moderation is not something I do well with in any situation. I'm more of an "all or nothing" personality.  
I do not drink regularly and I certainly don't miss it when I do not drink, but when I do I often drink more than is sensible.
I know it's a different topic than this thread, but does anybody know if tendency to addiction is BT or secretor status related? I don't seem to have the addiction gene. I quit smoking after 20 years (2 packs+ a day for at least the last 10 years) and didn't have any withdrawal symptoms. I can have coffee or not and don't feel any different etc.

If I remember correctly, it's the Os who tend toward addictive habits.

Surprisingly, I can handle a good bit of alcohol before it affects me.  Even with whatever liver issues I'm struggling through, I can still process it quickly.  I can drink many times what DH can (he's a lanky B Nomad) before I get the slightest bit....smiley.

I like all types of alcohol and find that a little bit is actually healthful for me it seems.  

It can reduce anxiety, for me it puts me in a great mood, and i feel like i am on cloud nine!

I don't need it and feel great without it, but i enjoy drinking a few beers or sipping on drinks with friends or by myself in the evening sometimes.

Quoted from Peppermint Twist
Alcoholism runs strongly in my family, so I stay away from the stuff myself.  I've seen what alcoholism does to people and families and it is not worth flirting with that for me.  That said, I do love red wine, sherry and my all time fave, gin and tonic.  *sigh*  Still, I don't miss 'em enough to risk tripping the family gene and, to use Dr. D.'s maaaaahvelous "town hall" metaphor, allowing it to get all vociferous and controlling at the town hall.  Currently, it is sleeping peacefully in a back pew and I want to keep it that way.

I'm a non-secretor and there is apparently a link between nonniehood and alcoholism.  I'll bet all the family members of mine who are or were (and I say "were" because of death, not because anyone who is an alcoholic can ever put that into past tense status in life; you can only be in "recovery", never "recovered") alcoholics also sport the non-secretor gene.


I tend to agree with you. I'm not perfect, tho.
On New Years Day I was (totally unexpectedly) given a FREE bottle of chamapgne to take home with me, unopened.....and silly Nonnie me, I drank the whole bottle at once. Mildly intoxicated, but recovered the next day with no headaches...YET...the stupid Explorer liver told me "hey you are allowed grapes now so Champagne is healthy for you....got any more?" See, my liver processes it too slow! It's not that I crave alchohol. I can process it.....but very slow.

I knew damn good and well not to repeat this. I missed a whole kickball game I was supposed to play in and the champagne gave me the illusion of "thinking that I was having a good time enjoying kickball"  when I wasn't even at the game...only thinking about playing it.  Bizzare!  !

I think it'd be a good idea to run a poll that distinguishes between the enjoyment of wine/beer with food, and the "use of alcohol".

Admittedly the individuals who are downing a bottle of wine alone and getting plastered, or even the people for whom spirits ("hard liquor") are a regular part of their lifestyle, constitute a very different population from that which customarily accompanies meals with wine or beer where others may opt for soft drinks.

I find it hard to distinguish, by bloodtype, the French population, for instance. Wine and beer are, simply, normally, drunk in many parts of the world without being thought of as "resorting to alcohol", for instance. The "teetotaler" is not prevalent there. There was no "Prohibition" movement there.

I agree, San j.
I was raised in a family that had wine with their meals. Most meals, but not all of them. Sometimes everyone had a glass and sometimes only one or 2 had a glass. It was always part of the joy of family together eating and socializing. I did have an Uncle who enjoyed his brandy often, , and 2 great Aunts that made dandelion wine.
A few of my cousins on both sides of my family are "wine snobs" and the rest enjoy a drink before or after dinner. No alcoholics.
I may have a glass of wine with weekend dinners if I don't need to drive. (Safety first)
When we visit my Dad at his river house for a weekend I will enjoy his collection, bien sur!!!!! But again, no driving involved. Its always fun, food and wine but no one over indulges. I think we all want to keep control!

"It was always part of the joy of family together and socializing."
I dunno. When I lived in Paris - and maybe even before that? - a glass of wine was just what you drank with food, whether that was a sandwich or a multi-course meal. It had nothing to do with adding conviviality, with elevating anyone's mood. What do you drink with bread and cheese in mid-afternoon? A glass of wine. It's a cultural thing. And a single glass of wine has never made me tipsy, though I'm aware it has that effect on others.

I rarely drink more than a single glass of wine and would certainly have it at any meal.  Wine is just another food on our family table....and my family "celebrates" with the gathering, preparing and sharing of their meals together. Some of us look forward to the main course, others to the freshest vegetable found that day and then there are the desserts......Its all part of "one".
I am sooo missing my Granmere right now. She was the heart....and best cook of the family.

Was just reading a study about cardio-health and regular wine consumption.
People who eat a great deal of cheese maintain excellent cardio health and normal weight by having one or two glasses of wine per day, it seems. The numbers were also good for people who consume much oil - including olive oil. I believe it was a French study, in fact.

This is why it shouldn't be surprising that those whose diets include more animal-sourced fats (O's/B's) would find themselves reaching for wine to accompany them. This explains, in part, their ability to metabolize those fats in a healthy way.

I agree

My sister and I are both B´s We both enjoy wine (and maybe a cold beer in summer) we never drink a lot - but enjoys 1-2 glasses a day in the weekend- wen I cook I might stat on aglass- and then drink another with my dinner.
My mum and stepdfather boths O´s tend to drink too much( not alchoholics but still)
- they use alchohol to relieve stress. - really strange  imo.

I don't know what it must feel like to have experienced a long lifetime of O's tension / intensity that calls for regular healthy discharge through sport or other exercise. My guess is that - in those who do not know to handle it rightly - it can breed habits of finding chemical fixes? Remember that Dr. D says Os have a somewhat higher tendency to depression, too. Self-treatment of a sort?

hmmm, yeah. Example, yesterday: a family party in the daytime with lot of wine opened on the buffet and lots of food cooked by my daughter in law......I drank glass after glass of wine, cruising the buffet for something I could eat....nada! there were potstickers, deepfried chickenwings, etc. all with gluten...all, all all.....I ate a couple meatballs, but.....drank too much with too little food...
I didn't feel so good later......took B-complex, C, and NAC and went to bed. Feel fine today...

I just had another insight into these data.
Henriette is intrigued by the fact that 1/3 of both O and A responders are teetotalers, while only ONE of the 13 Bs who responded is a teetotaler. Her question is, really, why are the majority-types likely to abstain?

There are any number of possible answers to this, but right now it occurs to me that both O and A, when "dadamo compliant", are already likely to be abstinent when it comes to certain major food groups. Maybe they've given up dairy altogether. Maybe they've given up wheat. Maybe they've given up meat, or even all animal foods. As for Bs, we are the "omnivores" and need avoid no food group at all. So, if compliant BTD'ers are answering, this can account for less extremeness of habits, more easygoing moderation, with regard to what we ingest. "Balance," as Dr. D says.

I think the personality factor can figure in, too, speaking of easy-goingness, a trait for which Bs are often noted.

Maybe you are right abouut the B´s I do think it is interesting differnce.

- btw I also think it is a cultured thing  
In Europe my guess is you´ll find less people that abstain from alcohol
- not that we are drunk all the tie
- but we just have a rather long history with alcohol.

Used to drink beer every day.  Lucky B's



As a B BTD'er since 1996/7, I didn't drink beer: It is a B Neutral on the BTD.
In all my life I didn't drink beer. After a tennis match on a very hot day in 1998 or so, I discovered cold beer's refreshing character and re-mineralizing properties, but - even so - I didn't buy beer or order it away from the court. Frankly, I didn't cultivate a taste for it.

Then, 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?"

Just wanted to clarify that "B's" aren't all allowed beer, per The Genotype Diet. It's only the Nomads, I think? Someone correct me, but I think that's right.

Quoted from azzap
Four bourbon and cokes each friday night. 2 for each half of the football.  

Generally always regret it in the morning.  

In the non-football season I'd be lucky to have one drink a month and that would more than likely be a glass of wine. I don't know why the football brings out the bourbon drinker in me but I guess it has something to do with slinging off at the refs.  .

I can't get drunk though. That kills me. I take days to recover from even the most mildly annebriated states. As it is now, saturday mornings run at a slightly slower pace than the rest of the week and that's with the bourbon being only about 5% alcohol. I'd be a mess if it was any stronger.

I really shouldn't drink at all but in winter, the friday night "wind down" is just too alluring.  . One day I'll learn.


I wish those were good for my type (or any type at all for that matter)!!

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!

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?



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.
