Which is worse for anxiety/dp, candy or alcohol?
« on: December 21, 2011, 01:42:02 PM »
I'm not feeling so good but not sure if its more about drinking too many shots at these holiday bashes, or the Christmas cookies and candy I'm getting from my fellow office workers. All I know is I'm not feeling so hot today. What would I have to give up, the candy or booze?

Dear Charles,

If one is committed to overcoming anxiety and/or depersonalization, both of these in excess will slow down the recovery process. Alcohol would go a little higher in sugar content but given enough cookies and candy, it might be a close race.

We do take into consideration that holidays do lend themselves to more sugar in general and this is why there is compromise. There are ways to enjoy this time of year without overdoing or interrupting (to a larger degree) your recovery progress.

It helps to have a good meal under your belt before drinking or eating sweets. The exact combination of foods to create a less reactive mind/body is presented step by step in the program package. It absolutely help you avoid a strong reaction by countering a little more sugar at this time. There is always a way to compromise by effectively countering a change in diet at this time of year without a major problem.

Best wishes,
