Oh man, I tried drinking a beer, made it about 1/4 of the way through the bottle and felt like my stomach was going to explode. I was so uncomfortable.

Yeah I've kinda given up on beer, which is sad because it was one of my first true loves.

However, that love left a mark on me -- a big ole beer belly!

From now on, when I'm clear for booze, I'm a vodka collins man!

This makes me sad because I homebrew with a friend and the beer we make is so good, but if it?s something that has to go then so be it, Crown and Water for me please.

I am 6 months out, but occaisionally have an MGD64. It does leave you feeling very full. Just be careful not to pick up habits of eating and drinking at the same time - very easy to do with beer.

Honestly, I'm kinda turned off to booze since the surgery. I really can't drink enough to get much of a buzz (from a volume perspective). I can't drink much beer at all. And I find that the after effects are much stronger -- 2 or 3 drinks and even though I don't get very intoxicated, the next day I feel hung over.

It's to the point where it doesn't really seem worth it. I guess that's for the best, health-wise, but still it's a little sad to say goodbye to all the fun crazy times...

I was banded before sleeved. Maybe Im wrong, I know when I was banded I couldn't have any carbonated beverages. Can you have them now that I am sleeved? I haven't had a beer or soda for over 3 yrs. now.

It is different with the sleeve for sure. I had a drink the other night and since I couldn't have coke I opted for a Amaretto DiSarono on the rocks. It is sweet but low alcohol content and went down smooth, didn't even get a buzz. Haven't tried bear yet.

hahaha. . .I wouldn't want to try a bear either! I am about 10 months out now and seriously enjoy my rum and coke every weekend! Not to the drunk point mind you cause the sleeve won't allow that. :o But if you allow your coke to defizz a bit (sit around for about 1/2 hour) and then mix your drink, you'll find it works great. I hate beer so i don't drink it, so i couldn't tell you about that but it probably will fill you up really fast cause of all that foam in it! :blink:

I thought I read that you would become intoxicated faster with the sleeve due to how the alcohol is absobed in the stomach. wrong?

Nope, quite right, now i get that nice buzz with just 1 or 2 drinks. . that is my limit though, no more than that. . it dissappears as fast as you get it too, so you can reassure the buzz is gone after about 2 hours.

My experience as well - but more like an hour. And, wine makes me REALLY sleepy.
