There has been so much talk about the normalization of mental health struggles lately, and I think it's great. (Some experts are cautioning, however, that we are over-responding to mental health issues, responding to life's day-to-day emotions as if they are serious mental health crisis)
But one thing that isn't quite normalized yet, in fact far from it, is the very common situation of someone who appears happy and healthy in every other way, struggling with drinking. I've been so surprised in doing this podcast, how many "normal" people secretly drink too often, too much and for the wrong reasons.
Suddenly, those people with great kids, great jobs and a great partner find themselves unable or not wanting to stop drinking. But who can you talk to about it when everyone thinks you've got your shit totally together?
If that sounds like you, this is your podcast.
