Drinking alcohol is portrayed as tons of fun, socially acceptable, and the norm. But should it be the norm? Do you struggle with alcohol? Maybe not on a deep level to where it affects your day to day activities, but enough for you to notice some differences in your performance at work and everyday life? Does giving up alcohol mean no more fun in life?
In this episode I talk with Kate Bee who knew she needed a break from the alcohol. Turning to Alcoholics Anonymous seemed to be her only choice, but she found that she wasn’t in the category of it controlling her life, and found that there were no other groups or organizations dealing with the topic. This inspired Kae B to start her own mission to help people who are in the in between stages of drinking recreationally and an alcoholic. So she started the Sober School.
Questions I asked:
How did you come to start the sober school?
What was your turning point?
How do you know when you are drinking too much.
Why do we socially drink?
How does our drinking affect others.
How to have fun without alcohol.
Recognizing when alcohol begins to interfere with your life.
Feeling like you are standing out if you don’t drink.
How to politely not drink in a crowd.
Shame and alcohol.
