I Am Allergic to Alcohol

If you can't drink, whether by choice or not feel free to discuss! 8 People

    A Bad One.

    When I drink alchohol I have a bad allergic reaction -- it sets off the phenomenon of craving.  I want MORE.  And I don't stop wanting more until I pass out.

    And Sadly It's The One Thing I'm Allergic To =/

    Every time I drink alcohol, the next day is complete hell. I get sooooo ITCHY. I can't stop scratching... it feels like there are little bugs crawling inside of my skin. It lasts from a day to three. The allergy really sucks because occasionally I would like to drink and have a...
