What if you were asked to go 90 days without alcohol? Does this sound scary? If so, this episode is for you. You may not be a candidate for AA meetings, but that doesn’t mean alcohol isn’t an issue for you. Kate B of the Sober School talks about the myths we tell ourselves to make drinking acceptable. Do you use your booze for liquid courage or to make social outings more enjoyable? Or how about that long and stressful day and “needing” a glass of wine? Learn if alcohol is something you should cut back on, or cut out completely and some tips to get started. This episode puts our habits into question and puts a different lens on something that is socially acceptable, but should it be?
