OMG...and I knew that mouthwash has alcohol in it...because i drank a bottle one day in January when my boyfriend wasn't around to get me alcohol and I was in withdrawal.
There is a new bottle in the house...my boyfriend uses it. I have a root canal that broke off and my gum is hurting...so I decided to swish it in my mouth.
BEFORE I did it I looked at the ingredients...on the TOP...and forgot that on the bottom it lists other ingredients (although I didn't miss this in January when I wanted to drink it and read the whole label and saw the alcohol)...I had really forgotten thou...so I swished....and you always swallow some by accident..
About a minute later...my whole windpipe was BURNING....and I panicked! I went into the bathroom and looked at the bottle again and THEN remembered there were more at the bottom. The freaking mouthwash has 21.9% alcohol in IT. UGGGGHHHHHHH
I immediately went to the drugstore and bought mouthwash with NO ALCOHOL in it. I felt awful...and frightened.
Was this going to set me off? I felt like I commited a serious CRIME.
I know I am done drinking...because this is exactly how I reacted when I was 8 years sober...I steered VERY CLEAR of ANYTHING that had alcohol in it.
One day back then...my Dad..who loves me to death and is FRIGHTENED of my drinking...had a party at his house...and he had a fancy cake. I NEVER eat sweets...but it looked SO RICH...light and delicious..that I had a piece. I took one bite..and spit it out onto the plate and said DAD!!!!!!!!!! THIS HAS ALCOHOL IN IT!!!!!! I thought he was going to have a heartattack...he kept saying NO....NO....it doesn't.
I said YES....YES it does...he was holding his heart and apologizing to no end. I felt so bad for him and I was so angry at the CAKE.
For those of you that are trying to abstain. BEWARE of mouthwash and special treats....I won't even eat ANYTHING that was cooked with alcohol (even thou I know it burns off).
I'm over it now...but my throat burned for a long time tonight..Until I ate something...actually...I still feel a slight burn in my windpipe (thats alot of alcohol 21.9%)....and that was 3 hours ago .
