thanks for your response and for the information.
I disagree with you, though, about a few of the things you said:
1) i think metal toxicity is more prevalent that you suggest.
2) my cravings for all kinds of things (cannabis, alcohol, tobacco, sugars, caffeine) have completely disappeared now that i've gotten most (if not all) of the metal out of me.
3) a few years ago, i tried using glycerine to curb my cravings, but it did not work, and it in fact stimulated yeast growth. I don't think glycerine helps at all.
What i've concluded through empirical means is that controlling yeast growth is possible only when the metal has been removed, and that cravings for various substances (including sugars and alcohol) are also directly dependent on metal toxicity. Maybe that's not necessarily true for other alcoholics, but in my case that's how it is. I've been sober for more than 9 months now, so i must be doing something right, no?
