Regular social drinking has become so normalized that many people find it more unusual when someone chooses not to drink outside of health or religious reasons. Maybe you've had a few too many hangovers lately and are fed up with the morning fuzziness and vague headache that follow your nightly glass or two of wine? Maybe you are beginning to question if or how alcohol should have a place in your life anymore?

In this week's episode, Brandi and Tina are joined by special co-host Chris Fuste as we discuss our take on the book "Quit Like a Woman " by Holly Whitaker

We discuss the impact alcohol has had on our culture, and it's particular impact on women. We discuss how the industry (patriarchy) has lead us to believe that regular, and frequent, consumption of  "Mommy Juice" is not only OK, but encouraged.  Brandi and Tina discuss the role alcohol has played out in their lives as Chris shares her journey from being labeled "addict" and attending AA for years, to testing the waters with wine, to how she determined that alcohol really had no place in her life at all.  No matter your take, the book is worth a read, and this podcast worth a listen, to educate yourself and make the decision that is best for you.
