When retired party girl and popular therapist Amanda White admitted she was an alcoholic, it wasnt because shed done something outrageous while under the influence, like land herself in jail or get married in Vegas. It was because she realized three things: 1. Alcohol was making her life worse. 2. Moderation wasnt helping. 3. She could not be a therapist if she continued to use alcohol to numb her life. Something needed to changenot just her relationship with alcohol, but her relationship with herself.

Choosing not to drink can be daunting. Its everywhere in our culture, our socializing, and our destressing. And it can seem black or white: you drink, or you dont (and if you dont, people ask why).
