Low risk drinking guidelines from the NIAAA:

Healthy men under 65:

No more than 4 drinks in one day and no more than 14 drinks per week.

Healthy women (all ages) and healthy men 65 and older: No more than 3 drinks in one day and no more than 7 drinks per week.

One drink is defined as 12 ounces of beer, 5 ounces of wine, or 1.5 ounces of 80-proof liquor. So remember that a mixed drink or full glass of wine are probably more than one drink.

Abstinence from alcohol Abstinence from alcohol is the best choice for people who take medication(s) that interact with alcohol, have health conditions that could be exacerbated by alcohol (e.g. liver disease), are pregnant or may become pregnant or have had a problem with alcohol or another substance in the past.

Benefits of “low-risk” drinking Following these guidelines reduces the risk of health problems such as cancer, liver disease, reduced immunity, ulcers, sleep problems, complications of existing conditions, and more. It also reduces the risk of depression, social problems, and difficulties at school or work.

Today on the podcast, I'm talking to author, podcaster and life coach, Rachel Hart. Rachel has helped thousands of women change their relationship with alcohol. Her passion for her work really stems from a desire to change the conversation around alcohol.

Inside of her podcast and program, the "Think-Feel-Act" cycle teaching was truly instrumental in helping me change my relationship with alcohol.

Rachel shares her history with alcohol, and the realization for her that her desire to drink wasn't due to some pre-wired programming or genetic desire for alcohol and was based in a desire to feel something different.

We talk about using alcohol to change how you are feeling...and why that's really normal.

We talk about why using the science of alcohol can backfire if you try to convince yourself that alcohol is toxic or poison.

We don't need to focus on how much you are drinking (being sober or not). We should challenge the concept of abstinence and why changing the relationship we have with alcohol is how we can really find success.

Alcohol isn't good or bad, right or wrong it's neutral.
