    Hi there
    Thank you for taking the time to read my question.

    I was sober for 40 days straight as I wanted to break the cycle of everyday drinking. I did and I am happy about it but I know I won't stop forever. I have decided to drink once every two weeks. I don't think that's a bad thing as I am proving to myself I can control it.

    Anyway two weeks ago I had my first few beers after the 40 days sober and wow did I feel bad that night and the next day. I was shaking and anxious. It was really weird as before I never got that. Two weeks later as in yesterday, I had some beers and it happened again!!!

    My questions are these:
    Is it because my tolerance has gone?
    Have I gained an allergy to alcohol?

    I would love to hear from you guys if you have experienced this or know someone that has experienced this.

    Thank you
