    End Alcohol cravings by way of Water??

    Hello, I am new to this forum but have lurked here in the past, there is a lot of great information and people here!

    I downloaded the PDF and plan to get the cd's and the supplements, I probably won't do the Topa unless I fail without it.

    I am 36 and have been drinking all through high school and college and quite heavily the past 15 years (average 10 - 12 drinks a day).

    I came across this website recently http://www.watercure2.org/ and specifically the article "addictions" which you can access by clicking in the left pane.

    I started this Sunday morning, my last drink was Saturday night (5 days so far). I can say that I have not had any withdrawal symptoms, and I have not had any cravings. I have stopped drinking for 5 days before in the past but would always have cravings and some anxiety withdrawal.

    Any way 5 days is nothing to write home about but the fact that it has changed a process that was always painful in the past to somewhat of a "nonevent" is...

    Best of all it's free.

    Nope it is all free (although he does have a book out but you don't need it). On the home page in the middle you will see a link for the recipe and a FAQ.

    Here is everything you need to know:

    The Water Cure Recipe

    Drink 1/2 your body weight of water in ounces, daily. Example: 180 lb = 90 oz. of water daily. Divide that into 8 or 10 oz. glasses and that's how many glasses you will need to drink, daily. Use 1/4 tsp. of salt for every quart of water you drink. Use salt liberally with food. As long as you drink the water, you can use the salt. Use only 50 to 80 mineral, no additive, unprocessed sea salt. Avoid table salt. It only has three minerals in it. While the best sea salts contain all minerals, you should eat a banana or two a day for potassium and take some magnesium, calcium and zinc to maximize your immune system.Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic drinks. These are diuretics and will dehydrate you. Every 6 oz. of caffeine or alcohol requires an additional 10 to 12 oz. of water to re-hydrate you.


    Where can I get good sea salt (50 to 80 Minerals)?

    You can call 1-800-TOP-SALT. (800-867-7258) http://www.celticseasalt.com/ This is the Grain Salt Society, 273 Fairway Drive, Asheville, North Carolina 28805. This is the best that we have found. It contains 84 trace minerals. Another one is the Redmond Mineral, Inc., P.O. Box 219, Redmond, Utah 84652. 1-435-529-7402. Their sea salt has over 70 trace minerals in it. BE CAREFUL when buying sea salt or Celtic Sea Salt. If it does not list minerals on the back, the odds are that you have just bought expensive, prettier packaged table salt. All salt came from the sea at one point. So it is legal for anyone to label their low grade salt as sea salt. Good Celtic Sea Salt is NOT white or dry.

    Link which lists retail outlets where you can buy Celticseasalt by state:

    PS: I have not yet used the sea salt, I went to my supermarket but all they had was the "no mineral" type so I am going to whole foods this weekend to buy some. The point being is that you don't need to necessarily start with the salt if you don't have any handy (which i'm sure most of us don't).

    Beer and Wine mainly. I work in midtown Manhattan so there are plenty of bars and drinking folks to see, I hit happy hour every day for a couple hours after work. Easily sucked down 6 or so pints (im pretty big 6'5 230 so that was nothing really).. After that I would have another couple at home.


    Those were just normal run-of-the-mill days there was always one night that ended up much later into the night and many more drinks..

    Other times if I was home alone not to be deterred I would order a 1.5 bottle of Chardonnay and polish it off easily, sometimes if I was feeling particularly strong I would call down for another one and polish off half for good measure...

    Yep I agree it is way below toxicity, no worries there. I'll see how things roll in the next couple weeks, I have a big barbeque next weekend where there will be plenty of booze. That will be a good a test as any... Take care..

    wellwater

    We have deep well water on our farm and since I started drinking it, I can't stand bottled or city water! When we had it tested, they said that it has "too many "good minerals in it! We do filter it.

    My son is a marine and when he was in boot camp, they really pushed water for anything that was wrong with you. It became a joke around here....but I guess theres something to it!

    Going to pick up sea salt when I go to store.

    Thanks for the site and info!! Sure can't hurt to try!

    Question

    Don't know if this can even be answered. However, I already drink a ton of water to make up for what I am losing from drinking wine. Is the salt the secret do you think? I am very curious about trying this and will do so. At the very least I am a gourmet cook and I have always wanted to cook with this salt and so now I have a good excuse. I would love to know if the rest of you do not drink water and that is why maybe this would work for some people; because you are rehydrating yourself. I am not in that position because I am very aware of how much of a diuretic wine and caffeine can be so I drink plenty. Thanks for letting us in on this, however. Sounds very intriguing.
