    Loved this episode. Very real. My husband and I are trying out the moderation approach, but may delve into the full sobriety realm. The social interactions are what we find the most challenging. Thank you for this episode!

      For social interactions when I do not want to drink, I rely on carbonated water, or a non-alcoholic alternatice for wine or whisky or beer that actually tastes close enough. I do moderation just fine but did take about 6 months totally off before I decided to build anything back in and for some moderation will never work. No shame in that just something more to know about ones self.
