Yes if you became acclimated to the metabolic byproducts of candidiasis like alcohol, formaldehyde, and acetaldehyde (along with the other 76 toxins) for all those years it does indeed mirror an alcohol addiction. In fact it is MUCH worse. This is most likely the craving for sweets people with candida feel... they are actually alcoholics craving the metabolic byproducts.
You are not only dealing with this withdrawal but the deadly herxheimer poisons released as well as the effects of a low carb diet. It is a triple whammy. You must feel pretty bad man lol
Unfortunately I inherited a genetic allergy to alcohol. You can imagine how badly these mycotoxins affected me.
