A college drinker whose alcohol consumption really ramped up in law school after she was diagnosed with anxiety and put on medication, Ruthie never imagined alcohol was contributing to her stress. Booze was supposed to quiet her mind, she thought. There were hangovers so bad she missed study groups. Weddings and other big events became excuses to over drink. After the traumatic births of her children and immersion in Mommy Wine Culture, Ruthie realized she wasn’t being the best mother she could be. She tried “every trick in the book” to drink less, but the guilt, anger, sadness, fear, shame, and shoulds kept her stuck in what felt like an unbreakable cycle. What finally worked for Ruthie? Listen as she shares her story with This Naked Mind head Coach Scott Pinyard.
