Been alcohol free for 56 days - first time ever - was a very heavy drinker and I am an alcoholic. In the last few weeks my farts have become extremely smelly! Is this normal? Sorry if tmi!

First of all, congratulations on your sobriety. You are doing brilliantly, and I'm so happy for you! As for the farts, I would suspect your body is in a major course of recalibration, if you will. Your liver is healing, your gut is rebalancing, etc. I would focus on a healthy diet, drinking lots of water, and give it some time. Again, well done!

Thx for replies and I think you are both right - tend to eat lots of protein and less carbs (but this diet hasn't really changed so pretty sure it's my body trying to recover! Pretty horrid though!
