Ok...bad bad christmas party effects on BP!

OK, my BP is high as you have read in my posts. I've been doing well for the past few months on my Lisinopril. I caught a cold and now have almost gotten rid of it. Time to fess up. The past 2 weekends, my Husband has had his xmas parties. At both, I drank vodka and cranberry drinks (about 3 that night). And this last weekend, I drank 5 Sex on the Beaches!!! If this is what's effecting my BP how long before this stuff gets out of my system???

Re: Ok...bad bad christmas party effects on BP!

I can't say that I'm an expert on this, but I've done it enough in my time (I'm 34) to know. When I drink 5-6 drinks, the next day I have a lot more anxiety & my pulse rate is usually 10-12 points higher. It can last for a couple of days for me. Don't stress about it. We all drink a little too much at times (at least most of us).

I stress when I lose 2 pounds. I'm 148, usually 150. It feels much better not worrying about fluctuations. It's part of being human. Probably lost 2 pounds, because I didn't eat much of anything on Saturday & yesterday I didn't have that much either. I'm not going to stress.

Enjoy the holidays & don't worry about it. On Sunday I had 3 beers & my 1st reading on Monday was like 130/78. Today my 1st reading was 120/71 & my average after 3 readings was 115/68. It passes.

Re: Ok...bad bad christmas party effects on BP!

Sheesh 5-6 drinks?? I'd be out of sorts with that many. I have a cocktail evey night but 3 on weekends and parties that is my limit. I know I have been told I can't hang with the big boys. I think some people it does raise their BP. With my meds they only seem to go up when I am ******..Lisa

Re: Ok...bad bad christmas party effects on BP!

I keep it to a minimum these days. I was fried yesterday on 3 glasses of wine. I have no tolerance any more. I don't really drink that often.

Re: Ok...bad bad christmas party effects on BP!

I love Daquiris
Jack & Coke
Beer
Sprite mixed with Tequilla
A good Chardonnay.
A good Pinot Grigio.

I guess that I'm a mess.
I try to stay away from drinking at all during the week. During the holidays it isn't easy. I have a bar 2 blocks from my house. Never drink & drive!!!
