Hi,

since Gary told me I need to be more specific I am going to post my first significant findings.

I recorded my pain on a scale from 0 to 1, like percentage.

I also recorded whether I drank alcohol on that day. And set up a variable whether I drank the day before

I used PSPP and linear regression as method. I have now 27 records.

To me it looks interesting, that v_Alk, meaning alcohol consumption the same day, is more significant then alcohol the day before. Leading to the question whether I drink because of the pain? I would habe expected to have the pain the other day, so after drinking alcohol.

So what do you guys think? It that method here used correctly?

I also get a significance of 0.07 for alcohol and acid burning in my throat (how do you call that in english). This one is easy understandable.
