Highlights of Is Drinking Occasionally Ok?

This journey presents so many questions and areas we may not understand. One common one is wondering – is drinking occasionally ok? Annie addresses this – 

  • Understanding the gray area: Many people start casually but gradually drink more to cope with stress or boredom. This can cause a yo-yo effect on our drinking habits.
  • Tolerance and the path to wanting to cut back: Consistent drinking to cope can lead to needing more alcohol to feel the same effects. This cycle can eventually make individuals realize they want to cut back. Moderation creates its own set of issues.
  • Is drinking occasionally ok?: It’s common to have a desire to return to moderate drinking. Education rather than fear is key to making informed decisions about alcohol consumption.
