I drink. Not often, but when I do, it's always rather heroic. So here's the thing; Since going Paleo - I no longer walk in at 5am craving McDonalds Bacon and Egg McMuffins. I now walk in at 5am craving steak, or Paleo pancakes (nut butter, applesauce, eggs and strawberries). I actually can't believe it, as succumbing to 'hangover' food (i.e. in most cases Macaroni Cheese, Spaghetti Carbonara, Burgers burgers burgers) has always been one of my biggest weaknesses - but it seems to have disappeared! Even in my most vulnerable state, I still will not even consider the thought of putting processed grain into my body anymore. It's crazy isn't it? How once we get on the right track, our bodies, even at a subconscious level, know it's good and signal us to keep up the good work. Love this sh*t. Rock on Paleo, that's all I got to say. :D... Anyone else got any similar reports?? I'd love to hear.
Saturday night I ended my brother's blow-out birthday party with a plate of bacon at around 2 AM. I shared some with my fellow revelers who are probably all now converted for life to Paleo. End a party with bacon = awesome.
My drink of choice was gin and soda with lots of lime -- sort of a Norcal Gin Rickey.
Robb Wolf actually devotes a section of his book to Paleo drinking. I am not sure if he was actually serious but he says drink the hard stuff, early in the night, get some limes in there and end the night with a nice big protein snack. Advice to live by.

Sounds like you are getting past the conscious part and in to the land of habit. When i was first getting there, I called it palate drift... I had managed to change my taste in foods!
The first two week of paleo were tough for me, but I have to admit it's pretty easy now. I'm not fazed by bread at a restaurant or free beagles and donuts at work. I have minute cravings for grain/flour items. I have zero cravings for dairy. The only craving I have is for chocolate, which I can't explain.
