Alcohol Cravings and Hypoglycaemia | The Fix
Alcohol Cravings and Hypoglycaemia | The Fix: Many of us, regardless of our degree of dependence on alcohol, experience cravings at a 'witching hour', often between 4 and 8 pm. I used to think this was just because it was a habit to have a drink after a long day. We 'deserved' a drink and so had one, starting at the witching hour. When we stop drinking or cut down, it's at the witching hour that the cravings are strongest. I think this is partly because of the habit, but having done a bit of research, I think there are also biochemical reasons for the witching hour.
