Diferent people on EF
Common folks take it easy! It is not like definitely something to lose sleep over or qualified for legal lawsuit. One EF'er committed to help another EF'er and did not keep one's promise. Shame on him! That's about it.

Non-alcoholic drinks
Yeah, it really does interact. It's pretty serious shit - I'll need to have regular blood tests to check my liver function so alcohol is definitely banned for at least a few months, and then I may get away with the occasional drink.
