My husband and I have decided to celebrate kicking opiates by taking a fishing trip. Fishing had always been one of our favorite ways to spend time together(it was even our first date). It was one of the things we lost to our addiction. Anyway.....a tradition of being out on the lake fishing on a hot afternoon is having a couple cold ones.I assume as with anything it may not be wise to mix Kratom and alcohol.Any thoughts or experiences?

I take Kratom 4 times per day and have no problem taking the occasional glass of wine (or 2) with dinner or even having a cold one. BUT one is all it is!

I used to drink ...A LOT.... but once my pain was under control I found I did not even think about alcohol. Clearly I was medicating for pain!

Enjoy your opiate free fishing trip!

I like a cocktail or three at social events.

While I'm using kratom,my tolerance for alcohol is quite low. Ridiculously low. So I slow down by alternating cocktails with bottled water or Perrier.

I almost fell down when I took 2 sips of beer after a burn once. I felt very loopy and unstable for over 2 hrs. Not fun. I didn't enjoy it at all, but we're all so different! Fascinating!

Enjoy the trip! And congratulations! It's not ONLY 2 weeks, it's the two HARDEST weeks! That's the part people avoid at ALL COSTS.

I'm enjoying the journey and recommend it :)

Congratulations on taking your lives back! Like Nessa, I cried when I found FREEDOM in a leaf!

Kratom is my antidepressant, too, thankfully, because NOTHING ELSE HELPED.

Congratulations! What an awesome way to celebrate. :)

I'll echo the others' comments about being less tolerant to alcohol when using kratom. You might want to factor that into your plans since you never know how a couple beers will effect you.


Have fun!

Bomalley - My experience exactly. My drinking has dropped dramatically with the Kratom (1 teaspoon - 3 to 5 times per day). I have one or two beers or glasses of wine, with no ill effects.
