depends upon your location.... here in the USA a majority of states light beer refers to calorie content. in a rare few states like illinois light refers to alcohol content if the beer was put through an extra diluting process during the brewing process. in germany and a few other countries "light" refers to both calories and alcohol content.

tip for those interested in alcohol brewing and such most colleges now offer classes to teach how to brew alcohol of various kinds. I saw in the news that NY, Florida, California Oregon, Washington and New Mexico have college classes where the students do hands on brewing and learning about the process.

my point is whether "light" "lite" alcoholic drinks refer to calorie or alcohol content depends upon where its made, what process is used in the making, what products are used and what the distilling/ delution process is.

I have been off the omniprozol for some time now. I am definitely able to handle beer better. I still am going to quit. I can never tell when I am going to wack-out now. Two times I will be alright and then boom I get crazy. I have been banned from one of the pubs. It is only a matter of time before I am banned from the other.


I have a ton of built up anger and frustration. That is from years of being in the mental health system and having mental health professionals totally ignore me when I tell them that I have a dissociative disorder. Some times I think people are messing with me. That is when I get paranoid. It is no use I just am too mental to risk being in a bar.


I have got to learn how to deal with the boredom in some positive manner. I do not want to get kicked out of this facility.

I think I definitely switch when I drink. The environment is the natural habitat for one if the few of us I know, Boo. She comes out to play.

Now I am not sure if it was the omniprozol causing me to have black-outs on eight to twelve beers. I had another one the last time I tried to drink at the Long Branch. (About three weeks ago.) That was it I gave my credit card to the staff here at the Jenkins Domiciliary.

I think that I am switching but everyone argues that it is just the amount of beer. I drink light beer and have consumed much more than twelve beers with out having memory loss. Some people claim that it is just old age. I just don't know.

When you are in a facility like this too young, I am just sixty-three, cabin fever can make you go nuts.

I think it makes sense that you might sometimes switch while drinking. It might be a kind of trigger for one of you. But it also makes sense you might just be drinking too much. Cut WAY back. Keep a journal. See what happens.

Yes, alcohol does loosen up control a bit. Everyone in my head likes to drink...when Iím done, another would come out and start their round of drinking. We always try to drink everything....I buy an 18 pack thinking 8-9 would be enuff.....the next morning itís all gone. I remember parts because we are co-con...but itís not really me still at it.

Sometimes the night is a blank...and the beer is still gone or 1-2 left.

So we are regulating how much we buy to a 6 pack and no more...

At the end....the littles want to eat everything in the kitchen, so now weíre drunk and stuffed full of peanut butter and jelly...syrup and waffles....and we just canít seem to lose any weight....I wonder why....

My doctor has prescribed me rantidine (red Zantac) for a lifetime curse of acid reflux and possible ulcers which according to drug interactions one can eat and drink on.

He also prescribed at the same time a a bottle of omeprazole which I never took because the pills were bigger then the rantidine. Sounds like I made a good guess based on size, color, and word pronunciation.
