    I struggle with the breathlessness too and always used to drink to get rid of it but I think it's a vicious cycle . I decided to quit drinking 4 days ago too. My anxiety is fairly high and I would love a drink to numb those feelings but I know it won't work in the long run. I'm hoping as the days go on it will get better which I'm sure it will. Hope yours does too x

      My suggestion is, we enjoyed fair weather.. so now lets ride out the storm together. 

      My doc had told me to ensure i high intake of glucose and chocolates to get the alcohol out of the system soonest

      I try to keep myself occupied since i am on leave, this helps reduce the effects when concentration is elsewhere

      I've had a lot of headaches today and have upped my sugar intake. I'm Craving so much sugar I think because of the lack of it in not drinking alcohol. Thats interesting that the doc says that it helps get the alcohol out quicker. I feel so pleased that I have done it though . Really need to get through the next weekend . Definitely will keep myself occupied too
