Dagmar, it's interesting that so little alcohol (I must have the same yardstick your family uses) causes you long-range cravings. For me, the next drink over what you described will cause a lousy night's sleep, but up til now, I haven't given sugar cravings any thought.
Good luck beating the demon - sounds like you're on the downhill side of it!
Andrea, good to hear you're feeling better!
JZJ, yay for unstuck anxiety blobs! World news just makes me annoyed and bummed out. I live out in the sticks where there's not much light pollution - getting a good look at the Milky Way tends to yank me back to center pretty well.
