Interesting article to make you think! Are you a functioning alcoholic?
Having taken the decision to stop drinking alcohol over a year ago, I can’t believe the difference to my overall well being and YES I was a functioning alcoholic. Physically, both my partner and I have lost heaps of weight, we sleep better, don’t feel tired during the day and for me, my skin, hair and nails are in peak condition. Of course, some of these wonderful benefits are due to eating a plant-based diet and taking regular exercise, but the ‘control’ that we have gained back over our lives has had the biggest impact. This explains why I kicked the drink wellnessinaction.co.uk/quit-drinking-alcohol and the article below will give you food for thought and maybe this is the elephant in your room.

When many of us think of an alcoholic, we envisage someone waking up and swigging from a bottle of vodka. But this isn’t always the case. If you only drink at social occasions but you drink until you’re blackout drunk each time, are you an alcoholic? What about if you drink five or six nights a week, but just a glass or two of wine per evening?
