good job on the check in!!!
I have found, for myself, that i dont say anything is off limits. I really dislike wine, but if it was something i did like i would have a small amount!! the only thing i find i cant have a small amount and be satisfied with is snickers. one mini just doesnt cut it for me...but i CAN have 6 peanut m and mes and be fine...or one dove dark square, etc.
As for a substitute...i dont think so. sorry!!
