just looking for a bit of advice on managing cravings! Does anyone know of anything natural i can take that has helped them with cravings. i tried kudzo but it didnt work for me.
I tried Kudzu a few years ago and found it did nothing, but some people seem to get on with it. I'm not really sure what an alcohol craving is for me, though? I've tried to explain on here before that for me it's a thing in my head (a desire to stop a particular thought or emotion by getting blotto) rather than a desire for a taste - a chocolate craving, for example, I know is a physical thing. I can only deal with the alcohol 'craving' by first dealing with what's going through my mind. I know that doesn't make sense for most people though.
Some people talk about confusing thirst (though I guess alcohol craving isn't thirst) and hunger, so keeping hydrated (with water!) is important, and not getting too hungry (eating a decent amount of protein and good fats combined with slow release carbs).
Hope someone else has some better suggestions that me, Rose
