I hear ya’, retired a year ago, currently 64, ready to have fun and travel and spend my hard earned savings. BUT the daily woes and uncertainties leave me depressed and bored! Thanks for the link, I will read that. Yeah we don’t know for sure what’s considered heavy drinking, and I too want to know what is considered 'safe'. My six sisters and I all like to drink, laugh and enjoy ourselves now that kids are grown and working is in the past, ok I digress…

I will weigh in here, take it or leave it. My neurologist said 1-2 drinks a day is fine. A chiropractor ( tired very briefly) said he felt no correlation between alcohol and PN. My research has led me to believe heavy daily drinking for years affects vitamin B levels and that can definitely lead to PN, plus poor nutrition compounds it as most calories would be alcohol! At times I feel Guilty thinking I may have caused it – many years of social drinking on weekends only, then 15 years or so of rarely drinking as I was pregnant or raising kids, then amped up a bit during my last years as a teacher. Retired now and do enjoy a few maybe 4-5 times a week, sometimes less. But I do not see a direct correlation with that particular day, nor when I had zero for 10 days.
So who knows? Kinda like the 2 pack a day smoker who never gets a related illness and lives to 95!

Okay, thank you for your reply and sharing your experience. I thought about Calmare therapy and hoped there were some success stories here, none yet.
