I know I can not taste it but will the fumes affect me? I am planning on starting antabuse today and just dont want to get sick.
I was taking 250mg/day, and on visiting my doctor asked about contact with alcohol, cologne specifically. She smiled and said, "If you took a bath in it!" Apparently basic contact with alcohol is not a problem, and it is in a lot of things we don't even consider, at least in small amounts. Pastries, fresh fruit... yeast, sugar and water get around...
From what I understand it takes intentional consumption, but I still find my self pausing when putting on a little cologne. :)
