Lack of appetite

Posted , 9 users are following.

For the last 2 days I have no appetite. It has been 2 weeks sober and I have been fine but these last 2 days nothing. I ran 4 k yesterday and 6 today so technically I should want to eat...but nothing...no appetite.

Could this be a part of the detoxing even after 2 weeks?

    I am 22 days sober and I have had a roller coaster of either being starving or not hungry at all, no in the middle for me. I barely ate for two weeks then this weekend I craved sugary cookies cakes candy everything then had tons of chips and pretzels. I think it is just all a part of our bodies balancing all out. I'm new to sobriety so I can't tell you what is going on just wanted to tell you my story and what I'm going thru. My stomach hasn't been right the first week or this past week but was okay in the middle, very confusing. Either way I'd rather deal with this then the self loathing feeling waking up after a binge. I dream I have relapsed pretty much nightly. I hate that. So hard to snap back into reality but nice when I do. Hope your appetite comes back

    Best of luck

      Hello and I wish you the best of luck with your recovery.I am sober 6 years after a big binge with not drinking. I went thru AA for several years and stayed sober until I got bored with the drama that went with it. I also felt as though I was giving a sales meeting and took AA in the wrong way and it didn't work for me. I just woke up one day with Gods help and haven't had the desire to drink. It was so easy when I made the decision not to drink. It is hard for alot of people but I guess the attitude has alot to do with it. Do it for yourself and not anyone else and remember if you don't drink you can't get drunk. All you habits will change but you let them and things will go your way. I just believe it.Thanks for sharing and good luck.

      Hi Stan. I tried AA also and like you it was not for me. I didn't like the drama either. So for a long time I found it hard battling it out by myself. I'm really fortunate to have people like you who take a few minutes to remind me of why I am here and that I can do this. Thanks.

      16 days now sober. ?

      Your message made me smile because it was very relatable to me. I didn't seek AA although I have seen it work miracles for many and have watched others fail. For me, it was just something inside me that I knew I wanted and would do and wouldn't accept failure anymore. I'm truly so thankful and I do know without God I would still be in my same cycle even though I'm sure now I would be much worse, at the end it was getting so bad. I didn't remember any conversations or promises or had to pretend I knew what people were talking about when really I was blacked out drink more than anyone apparently realized. Tomorrow is day 26, man am I thankful for that and will continue to be smile

      Thanks for sharing with me Stan

    After I stopped drinking I went onto sweet foods and still eat too much of it.  I guess it's the body adjusting etc?
