Mental health, meds, alcohol 

New meds say “no alcohol for you”

I say “but beer is so delicious though 😞”

Mental stability probably says “no actually”

@aurynn I've basically stopped drinking because the alcohol interaction was not great with meds. I don't really miss it at all now.

it's probably good to take a break from it

@xssfox I in general don’t drink very much anymore as it makes me feel really crummy, especially the day after, but the whole social aspect was and is really appealing

re: Mental health, meds, alcohol 

@aurynn I thought you drank 0%?

@aurynn I def miss the taste of alcohol but I just couldn't deal with the side effects anymore, and I *think* I'm happier for it? Net positive in any case

@aurynn there's a hoppy soda on sale at my local grocery, made by one of the better medium sized breweries around here, specifically for "want the taste of beer but no alcohol". Haven't tried it yet but I'm curious.

@eqe there’s great non-alcoholic beer options at my local grocery, and I’ve been enjoying them for the last couple of years.

But, they don’t entirely taste the same. They’re really close, but, not quite?

@aurynn @eqe If you're talking about the Lagunitas Hop Water I don't think it's really meant to be a nonalcoholic beer as much as it is a kind of flavored sparkling water

@aurynn @eqe I wasn't wild about it in any case

Mental health, meds, alcohol 

@pagrus @aurynn that's the one, I kinda like the idea but I'm generally positive about the "water with a hint of _" concept

Mental health, meds, alcohol 

@eqe @aurynn I am too, in this case I think it was just that particular flavor I wasn't fond of. Or maybe just hops by themselves? I don't know. Some people like them though, so don't let me discourage you from trying it
