    Alcohol help please!!!

    Hi my dukan friends - right I've made a decision and I need some advice please!!!
    Right I started dukan July 2011 and got to target in July 2012 - my total weight loss was 7 stone - since July I have been doing conso (well doing it the way I can cope with it!!) the way I'm doing it - well after gradually lowering myself into it! I started by just having veg every day apart from pp thurs - after a few weeks I added the bread and a few weeks later the cheese and the fruit - I am now having a meal a week with whole wheat pasta and i have a cheese toastie every night, veg every day but thurs and I eat as much fruit as I want throughout the day and do a pp thurs every week - I know what I am doing with my fruit is technically wrong but I have not had any gala meals in conso (mainly cos I know I won't be able to get back on the diet after loosening the reins!!) so I find having as much fruit as I want balances out and I'm still at target - anyway after all that waffling here is the question!! - I'm going out in may for a birthday 80s night disco and I know to have a good time, get dressed up and have a good boogie I will need to include alcohol - my tipple is gin!! - now I've not touched alcohol since starting dukan (which is over 18 months) and I've read horror stories on here about dukan and alcohol!! Do I need to break myself in gently or are the horror stories only when in ketosis - which I surely won't be in now I'm on conso or am I?? I don't want to go out on the night and have a drink and be really ill :-( so I would welcome your advice dukaneers xx it will be quite daunting tasting it for the first time in such a long time - bit like when I first had bread in conso!!! Thanking you in advance xx

    Why don't you have a few drinks sooner to find out? I found going low carb meant my tolerance dropped a bit and hangovers seem a little worse. (Although I rarely drink too excess anyway) But then, I didn't go 18 months without a drink, at most maybe two months....I am rather partial to my plonk!

    Have a few drinks at home. Hide your mobile, switch off the Internet, put water and bucket by your bed!!! I'm joking, but why not have a tipple or two at home to ease your way back? Then you can relax and enjoy the big night out

    Hi Scooter

    I would have a Gala day - eat what you want to soak up the gin - have a brilliant night and plan to do nothing the next day (except get straight back onto your version of Conso)

    P x

    PS - very impressive Dukan journey missus! 7 stones? Wowser

    I daren't have a gala day P!! Not had one since starting dukan!! It would open the flood gates I know it would and I would be on a downward slide back to my heaviest!! Wish I could trust myself but I can't - I know tasting foods I've not had for so long would awake my binging demons!! It would not be the one gala that would be the problem for me it would be getting back in control again :-( which I know I would struggle with

    Anyone who can go 18 months without alcohol is a saint in my eyes. I've only had 3 glasses of wine so far this year and I thought that was amazing.

    If I was you I'd make sure I had some pasta that day to line your stomach. I'm sure you'll only need one maybe 2 drinks to get you up dancing now.

    Have a drink (or 3) but be very careful because you'll get drunk very quickly having not drunk for so long. DEFINITELY don't go at it like you would have done before or you will just keel over. And don't worry about the food, the alcohol will probably completely suppress your appetite x

    Like u I'm doing my own version of Conso! I'm eating 3 apples per week!
    My weight is fluctuating -sometimes like today, I put on 500 gms because of the vegetables yesterday n I do get down in the dumps!!
    Maybe u have some advice for me!!

    Ok...............the local bad girl hear. I was a wine drinker prior to Dukan and never had a drink for 14 weeks I turned down night outs and partys. But there was the part I couldnt turn down and I was terrified because of the horror stories I had read but didnt knowwhat to drink, then my bestie said to try her g& slimline tonic and it tasted v v nice. I sipped it like it was going to kill me and waited for the collape, baging headache etc, but hey ho nothing......zilch. I without faill have my Saturday tipple and I'M SO BUSY ON A sATURDAY i EAT VERY little and I have no after effects at all, I get Happy but not silly drunk. I know everyones different and agree maybe have a couple inhouse to see what the effect is on you. Scooter your weight loss is fantastic and I know your shy but you should post your before and after pics xxx

    Sunbeam - I think the way I do conso is a bit naughty - I eat as much fruit as I want during a day - which is only usually oranges, strawberries or melon - but because I don't have gala meals I think it evens itself out - my weight fluctuates between being up to 3lbs above target to being 3lbs under but I'm happy with that and I feel in control doing it this way xx I always have my bread and cheese but its always for supper never during the day and I have as many veg as I fancy. And even though I did cruise for a year doing alternative pp/pv (and I can honestly say after the first couple of months which were tough I found the other ten easy) I can't believe how hard I find pp thurs on conso!!

    I think going that long without any wine at all is brilliant! Afraid the longest I managed is around 4 weeks.... So I'm not qualified to tell you how to start back on the juice. But if it were me, I'd make sure I had something to eat with it, and I'd have maybe a glass of wine with a meal to kick off with just to re-educate the system. No more mind, just enough to taste. Actually to be honest that's all I have most of the time anyway, since I only like to sup with food.
    Amazing loss, well done!
