Does anyone else suffer Withdrawal symptoms

Postby Damocles » Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:43 am

Im just back from an 11 day holiday and hadn't made a curry for a week prior to leaving. I am seriously rattling (Glaswegian slang :D )

Does anybody else find they feel like this after 2-3 weeks without a curry or has my over consumption of alcohol on holiday screwed up my mind :huh:

I am in a “curry crazy” stage right now since I have started cooking my own. After 1 or 2 days I am in withdrawal. Eating a curry right now actually makes my body feel good, and as soon as it is done I am already looking forward to trying again tomorrow!

Right now it has been 2 days without cooking (my wife is not as curry crazy as I am), so it is definitely on the menu tonight.

I used to get chill withdrawal when I was younger and lived in Edinburgh and then went on holiday to Europe - there are so many spicy places - Indian, Thai etc. (in Edinburgh, that it is, but not generally in Europe, especially back in the 90s). So, not curry spices but chilli in my case.

I get withdrawal symptoms after a couple of days,luckily for me my wife’s the same we just can’t get enough,we like it hot and spicy and normally indulge at least once a day but there are days when we just can’t get enough.

I think it's well established that chillies give you an "endorphin rush", isn't it? And the hotter the better! :w00t:
