You might notice improvement in your symptoms (not sure about visuals), because drinking was helpful to me also in the beginning.  

 

I'm building a working theory on this.  Part of it could be because, "Alcohol also helps to increase the release of dopamine, by a process that is still poorly understood but that appears to involve curtailing the activity of the enzyme that breaks dopamine down."

Thanks folks! Does it matter whether you have, say, one glass of wine or get completed wasted? I'm hoping to have a glass of wine at some point. However, breathing in second hand pot skyrocketed my symptoms and even gave me a new one (tracers).

 

Yes, getting wasted can actually make HPPD quite a lot worse.

 

The "safest" way to have 1-2 drinks, i've found, if a really good Gin, with tonic or bitter lemon. If you don't like gin, vodka + a mixer. If you really want wine, I find that white wine is the cleanest. Stick to a low % one
