I am super excited to have with me today, Veronica Valli to talk about something our culture has really normalized to the point that it is nearly impossible to escape, which is, the consumption of ALCOHOL.
Alcohol is everywhere!
When you go out to eat, it is very common to be asked if you want a cocktail.
The media inundates us with ads promoting alcohol.
Nearly every social occasion you are invited to will present you with an opportunity to drink.
Most people associate downtime, fun and relaxing with alcohol.
We are living in an age where we have made the consumption of alcohol SO normal, that many people struggle to drink less because they literally think their life will be less enjoyable without it.
And the craziest thing of all is that it is costing people a lot to drink.
It is costing people their ability to face difficult emotions head-on.
It is costing people their ability to be authentic and real.
For many, it is costing them self-respect, because alcohol is preventing them from improving things in their life they say are important to them, like health and relationships.
In other words, drinking costs a lot in terms of both mental and physical health. Which is precisely why I could not be more excited to have Veronica Valli with me today to talk about why you drink and how to stop.Listen Now!
