re: sugar addiction after alcohol addiction...

The gene for a predisposition for alcoholism is also linked to sugar addiction. The neurobiological pathways of drug and "sugar addiction" involve similar neural receptors, neurotransmitters, and hedonistic regions in the brain.

I have a whole family of addicts, and I'm not addicted to drugs or alcohol, but I for sure have a sugar addiction that I am working on, day by day.

https://spinalresearch.com.au/sugar-...ed-alcoholism/ - that's one of many articles about the correlation between sugar addiction/substance abuse

Alcohol has a lot of sugar in it. The body loves sugar. I've cut back on soda, I found the caffeine to initially be hard to get over. But it is the sugar that it is harder to get over.

For those curious about Kirtan, there's a podcast. I haven't been to a gathering yet but have purchased Sikh, Sufi & Hindu Kirtan albums & find them beneficial for relaxation. Now hopeful that Chemda will release an album of chants someday.
