The holidays are here! And one of those questions that comes up at get-togethers with family and friends:

How about a drink? More specifically, how about a drink with alcohol in it?

Chances are, you’ve heard that question. Or you’ve asked it. Or, maybe you’ve asked yourself that question.

What’s your answer?

We live in a culture in which alcohol is widely promoted. We see it in advertising. At events with family and friends. At restaurants, as well as the numerous bars that are prevalent in big and small towns.

A lot of my clients talk to me about their drinking. Some of them have been treated for alcohol use in the past, and are working on maintaining their sobriety. Or currently struggling with it. Others don’t drink at all and are comfortable with that decision. I also have clients who drink socially and feel okay with the role of alcohol in their life.

But I also have clients who are not sure if their current use of alcohol is healthy for them. They may have doubts that they aren’t quite ready to acknowledge. Many of these clients are also living with chronic conditions.

If you’re living with diabetes, you have most likely had the alcohol lecture from your physician. Alcohol can reduce the effectiveness of medications. It can bring on uncomfortable or even dangerous symptoms. Alcohol can interfere with your ability to cope emotionally. It can have a long term negative impact on health.

It’s not my intention to lecture you about alcohol use. But I do want to share some of the advice that I give my clients when they talk about the role of alcohol in their lives and how it interferes with their physical and emotional wellness. Here’s a link to an article I recently posted:

http://www.diabeticconnect.com/diabetes-infor...

So, how about a drink? Or not?

What place does alcohol have in your life over the holidays? How did you make this decision? Any advice to give to another member about making the alcohol decision?

Between the diabetes and the medications and being on medications for depression I rarely drink. I do enjoy a glass of wine now and then. Many years ago alcohol had a bigger role in my life. I do not miss it like I thought I would. I am glad to have to occasional wine or beer on a holiday and then have a nice glass of water!!

When growing up I didn't have to worry about alcohol because no one in our family drank. From my mothers side nor my fathers side. Then after I married my first husband I found that his father was a mean alcoholic. He would drink anything including rubbing alcohol and cologne. He was stomped to death while out drinking with some friends. The friends killed him. I am sure that he was fighting them because that is how he was. Doesn't mean he deserved to be killed though. Then my current husbands twin brother is an alcoholic. In my opinion, nothing good comes from drinking alcohol and I say that from experience.

Happy Holidays everyone,
I gave up drinking about 5 years ago, but every now and then coworkers will tell me about new drinks they've tried or I'll see some commercial advertisement and so I start to miss having a cocktail, but once I get home or divert my attention and interest elsewhere reality kicks in. I don't really like the affects alcohol gives me and the dreadful feeling of tiredness the next day(feeling like I was run over by a mack truck is what it really feels like)) so why bother. For sure i'll go though the same for Christmas this year but as usual I will have that lecture with myself and the fact now that I am diabetic makes it alittle easier for me to say no. Now food on the other hand, well I'm struggling everyday, and with few slip ups its not easy and I just want to do better. I love the advise and lessons learned I get from DC and I come to it everyday for strength.

Hello Homely54,

Nice to see you! And thanks for sharing this. Glad to hear you recognized the effects and made the decision to place your wellness first.

I know what you mean about the food thing. It's not easy at all. But it's one day at a time. And as I am sure you have noticed, you are definitely not alone in this struggle.

Glad you checked in. Please keep the connection going.

I do not drink anything alcoholic - not beer, liquor or wine. I don't drink coffee, tea or soda. I am stuck with hot chocolate occasionally or WATER which I must drink at least 8 8oz glasses per day. I'm bored so I add Dasani drops to change the taste. When asked if I want an alcoholic drink, I say I am allergic to the alcohol.

Since I am 13 years old, I have been wearing a triangle that when spins makes a Jewish star but when you look at it, it looks like an AA symbol so if I say I am allergic to alcohol, people think it is because I am in AA until I spin it into a Jewish star.

What my answer to alcohol is No, for me! I had 4 sips of a beer with my meal which was a protein and vegetable barbecued with no sugar barbecue sauce and my BG soared up 20-30 points. I was amazed just how much 4 sips of alcohol could do that to my body. For me, it is not worth it. Where is the nutritional value in it? Social drinking is just that social, I will take the social and leave the drinking to those who do not have diabetes. I never got a lecture from my physician about Not drinking alcohol I found out for myself by watching what it did to my BG levels. If I want to be Healthy, If I want to live a long productive happy life for Me alcohol is out! Just want to say, I know it is Christmas time and all the stuff is gonna be thrusted in our faces but we know what we have to do, we have to stay strong, be mindful of what we are doing to our health and what we do or fail to do today will have repercussions on us later. Just one day leads to another day and another day and so on, so try to make This day a good one in the right direction! Find healthy substitutes to replace old bad habits. If they don't have healthy snacks and drinks available at the Christmas party bring your own. xoxo

Hi Beca1, that is a great attitude. Wow, that is quite an effect from a little bit of drinking. Sounds like you learned a lesson here and chose not to repeat it. Saying yes to taking the best possible care of your health makes it a lot easier to say no to whatever might get in the way. You're right, you can have a great holiday without drinking. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Dr. Gary I say (go for it) if that is the way you feel. You are a grown man and know what your limit is. You're an adult and know how to drink reasonably! It's called self-(Control). I have me $2.99/$3.99 bottle of wine MIXED FLAVORS and I drink a glass of "Arbor Mist" 2-3 x a week. WITH OUT ANY SUGAR SPIKES. as far as telling your date that you are diabetic, I say don't hesitate put it out there in the open, and see how he or she responds. I would hope that their respective & understanding. I make diabetes apart of my life & daily topics, I'm very open - minded when it comes to me being a T2D. I have NO problems discussing my disease. Neither should you Dr . Gary and If the person is that sensitive to bring insensitive about "YOUR" condition you don't need them as a friend or lover.

It is so sad when people do not get it about diabetes. I was dating a guy with it, way back. I made allowances but other friends did not take it seriously. Then one evening, I was expecting him to pick me up for a date and his friend called and said "Did you know, Gene passed away?" He was 37.

I never did take to drink. We pretty much grew up without in and even when I was old enough, I never learned to like it much and never missed it. Occasionally I might enjoy a taste of schnapps or a nice wine but that's all. Also I'm a wimp when it comes to alcohol..I have no tolerance.

I m with you too! I never really liked the stuff! However, I started to drink a beer this summer, it was hot out n the beer was icy cold n took 4sips off it n accidentally knocked the rest over, it was my husbands last one! When I checked my BG that night 2 hrs after dinner OMG my BG had soared the difference was alcohol. I can only imagine, after seeing my blood test results, how many w D continue to consume alcohol n have no idea what it is doing in their body! The monitors don't lie! One of the Best things to happen to me this year was to get a Dr who took this Prediabetis seriously and had me start checking my BG. Seeing is believing! This is a personal and intimate journey with just u and your body and to see how food n drink, stress n lack of sleep, exercise n illness all affect your body is truly Amazing! This is a opportunity for us with D to educate, learn, grow and stretch ourselves and end up having a Happy, Wonderful life full of Joy and good things! So many r running around in our society with no idea they have D! We know we do and we can do something about it before it is too late!

Great topic! And very interesting article. Thanks Dr. Gary. I'm not a heavy drinker at all, but I do like a mixed drink on occasion, maybe 2 or 3 times a year with a friend or family member or on a special occasion. I have discussed this with my Endo, and my PCP and on the few occasions since Dx that I have had A drink (only ONE) i am very conscientious of my Dx and watch my BG for any changes. I do my best to be responsible. I will not be doing any drinking, even a glass of champagne on new years eve, over the holiday season.

I do not drink any more so I don't even give it any consideration. A polite no thank you is enough whe offered a drink. My family is large and generally the only drinking situations are with them. I engage socially with them but spend most of the time watching the children. It keeps me from temptation and they like the attention.

Hi Dr. Gary,
great topic especially this time of year. Alcoholism is at a all time high and those who are not alcoholics act like they should be. I know, because
tended bar in Las Vegas, NV. for 18 years. Some of the things I saw would
curl your toes.. as for me, I don't drink. .Well under the conditions I may have a glass of wine. But mainlty I'm just happy with water with ice and a twist of
lemon and maybe a cherry. Add a couple of straws and no one can tell the
difference. No one bothers you about a drink either. I didn't drink all those
years and I don't know a reason why I would now. However, James is
coming here for the Holidays. Christmas thru New Years Day. On new
years eve we have talked about having a glass of wine for the new year
We haven't firmed up those plans yet, but 1 glass of wine would be wonderful. We might even start our own tradition starting in 2015.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY,

Hi gatp,
not sure how to take it that that "real" alcoholics won't
write in. I was married to a real alcoholic and he was
very functional. He worked for a railroad, was an
excellent Father , just a disfunctional husband. He
would have wrote into this and no one would have been the wiser. Alcoholism is a disease, as hard as it
is to understand, it is a disease. Truefully, I feel
sorry for alcoholics. They can seek help, but it takes work and most just don't have it in them to do that. I
hope that answers any questions you may have

about alcoholics. Atleast, I think that's what you were speaking about. In any event have a Blessed Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

I know what the disease is like. My brother just passed away from it. He would not write in or have anything to do with a chat column. The disease made him turn away. We had a good talk before he died and he was trying to quit, again. He never gave up but could not lick it.

Depending on the occasion i.e. a wedding or new year's. Otherwise I can drink water and be happy. Tis my choice after knowing a great lady didn't listen and well her diabetes her poor management of her health ended up killing her. I loved her as a friend. Hence I have enough bad habits right now i.e. smoking cigarettes (down from 20 a day to maybe 4 per day) I am weaning myself off with a generic drug called bupion aka welbutrin (spelling not good maybe LOL).

Howdy Dr Gary
Growing up in my family of origin we didn't drink. Never had it around on family get togethers. The reason for that is that my great grandfather Dave was an alcoholic who abused his wife. Grandfather swore that there would no drinking for him, and his children. My dad did have a bottle of 4 roses whiskey in the upper cupboard but that was truly for times when he had a bad cold. I grew up and when I was old enough I became curious about alcohol. I learned how to get strong liquor from a store before I was old enough to legally purchase it (21 in OH in those days) When 18 I was legal to buy and drink beer, but I rarely did as I really didn't care for the taste of it, and I had few friends to egg me on.

I grew into adulthood and I did drink, but not a lot throughout my adult life. I drank with my (now ex) wife but she was not a big drinker either.

Today I will have a glass of wine or champaigne on festive occasions, but only one and then I am done. Usually at weddings, or holidays like Christmas and New years and maybe on a birthday. But most of the time I feel I cannot afford the damage it may cause to my BG (blood glucose) levels and also it is hard on my kidneys so generally I drink water from a brita filtered water bottle.

When I am with Valentine Lady on Christmas day eve, I doubt we'll have anything alcoholic (plus I have recently shipped her a brita water bottle for her use) We may have a glass of wine on New Years Eve to toast the new year, but that has not been firmed up yet. I don't plan on taking a bottle of wine to TX so I'll have to buy something there if we decide to do so.

Thanks for asking

James

Hey James! Thanks for sharing this with us. When you have an alcoholic friend or relative, that really brings home what problem drinking can do. Kind of takes the fun out of it, to say the least. And it sounds like your father felt that it was his responsibility to protect his family from the potential damage of alcohol. Sounds like you did the typical adolescent experimentation but that your father imparted his lessons well. And as you said, drinking doesn't exactly fit in with your self care. Whatever you decide to do on Christmas Eve, I am sure it will be happy and festive! Thank you! Gary
