Today's episode is all about alcohol. From the occasional drink to a glass or two every night, how do you know if alcohol is a problem in your life? I talk with Lori Massicot who is a Life & Sober Coach for midlife women. Lori shares the story of her 30-year journey with alcohol and how she knew that it was becoming a problem for her.
We talk about what it means to be sober curious, societal pressures and self-awareness around drinking. Lori encourages us to look at how our relationship with alcohol is impacting our relationships, careers and even personal goals. We talk at length about how alcohol is impacting the many hormonal changes and menopause symptoms that we experience at this time of life.
Lori shares how to navigate social pressures around drinking and create boundaries, along with tips on how to get out of the habit of drinking.
