Alcohol, for sure.  I tried a beer at 3-weeks and suffered for a few days.

 

The only other time that I thought something set me back was one time early in withdrawal, somebody suggested drinking a little apple cider vinegar.  I tried a tablespoon or two and it seemed to bother me for a day or two.  It was just a one-time thing, so no replicate data available.

 

I had a few minor food sensitivities, but I don't consider that a set-back.  I would quickly learn what not to eat and move on.

2016- Flexeril (muscle relaxant) setback like acute caused me to reinstate after 8 months off

2020- MSG caused setback worse than acute which caused me to take a couple of rescue doses at 8 months off.

sugar

MSG

caffein

processed food

Coffee.  Made me so sick.  Gluten made me sick.  Sugar revved me up.  Passionflower was a big mistake.  Supposed to calm you, but it made my feet and hands go numb.  Too big reductions.  Very bad idea.

Alcohol was a major setback. I was so sensitive to it. after drinking  it felt like everything collapsed.

 

unlike others nothing else affected me. coffee,food,medications. six months on I can drink but generally avoid it and keep it at a minimum. the sensitivity seems to be gone.

 

All the best

As for exercise it depends on the person. I find it helped for a few for many reasons. it's something I would try, if you don't have any negative effects it will help.
