Ep 233 Addiction + Culture + Emotions

In this episode, I break down the trifecta of what causes us to over-drink.

1. We are actually designed to get addicted to things; it's part of our survival programming.

2. Our societal and cultural programming plays a big part in how we view alcohol and what we think about using it.

3. And finally, our lack of skill to be with our feelings.

I dive deep into each of these areas and expand on why we are over-drinking and how we can fix it.

You are not broken, nothing is wrong with you, and you don't have a disease! All of this is good news.
