    I've had those nights. It's your body screaming for you to change your filthy, disgusting habits.


    Or die a slow horrible death.

    I've cut back. It was a mixture of the beer and the pizza. Pizza kills me now

    See if you have honey in the cabinet , Take a big swig , It will coat your esophagus to keep the acid from burning for a few.

    Pizza is a huge no go if you get the gurd, especially at night.

    Raise the head side if your bed 4-6 inches with small wood blocks and sleep on the LEFT side of your body.
