Episode 40 - What is Gray ARea Drinking and how do i manage it? with kari schwear

There’s choosing to take a drink, and then there’s being addicted.

But in between is what’s known as the “gray area” of drinking.

In this fascinating conversation with Kari Schwear, she and Mel dive deep into:

  • What exactly IS the gray area of drinking?
  • How is binging defined? And what is the difference between men and women?
  • The three categories or levels of alcohol abuse
  • The connection between our thoughts, feelings, and drinking patterns
  • Ways that alcohol affects you in the long run

Kari also offers some useful tips to help you stay out of the gray area…
