Alcohol is toxic. But drinking is so common that its real effects are often minimized in society. Many people don’t realize the severe health impacts it can have over time. Drinking raises your chances of having a stroke, going into a coma, and getting cancer, among other health problems.
A lot of people are afraid to interrogate their drinking habits because they don’t want to stop cold turkey. But there are no rules; you can just cut back instead of quitting altogether.
A good way to assess your personal needs is the Alcohol Experiment. Here’s how it works: for 30 days, you’ll stop drinking alcohol, observe yourself, and draw conclusions. Then you’ll modify your habits—or not.
Ask objectively, seek the truth, and your answers might just surprise you. Learn more in our Instaread on The Alcohol Experiment.
