Psychology of Nutrition

On Alcohol, Awareness, and Asking for Help

In honor of April being Alcohol Awareness Month, ITN CEO and founder Cynthia Garcia is getting candid about her relationship with alcohol and offering a space to reflect on your own drinking patterns.

Between mommy wine culture and so many events centered around drinking, alcohol misuse and abuse has become so normalized.

Add on a global pandemic, and it’s no wonder that more people under the age of 65 died from alcohol-related deaths than from Covid in 2020. 

What hasn’t been normalized, though, are the short and long term effects of excessive alcohol use.

If you’re using alcohol to numb trauma or escape from pain, you might feel an immediate relief, but it doesn’t provide a sustainable solution. Cynthia talks about some alternatives that she likes to use to take the edge off, like non-alcoholic mocktails. 

At ITN, we often ask the question, what are you really hungry for?

In this case, we’re asking the question, what are you really thirsty for?

Can you find other ways to quench your thirst that help you find more peace and happiness?

If you’ve been looking for tools to cut back on drinking and need some inspiration for alternative ways to wind down at the end of the day, tune in to today’s episode.
