    EP 324: Reader Question - Does Annie Grace think AA is wrong?

    EP 324: Reader Question - Does Annie Grace think AA is wrong?

    It’s a controversial question, one Annie Grace gets asked a lot. Does she think AA is wrong? In today’s episode, Annie shares her feelings about and experience with Alcoholics Anonymous, what AA members said to try to keep her from publishing her book, the label “alcoholic,” and what she thinks is the right way to get sober.

    EP 322: Reader Question - How do I deal with the fear of being exposed as an alcoholic?

    How do you balance your desire to remain private about your decision not to drink with the openness you know will bring you freedom? Is there any way to honor your need for privacy and still participate in online support communities for motivation, inspiration, and accountability? And, can the label alcoholic actually empower you? Annie Grace explores all these questions.

    EP 320: Reader Question - What is the pink cloud?

    EP 320: Reader Question - What is the pink cloud?

    The term “pink cloud” is generally used to describe a state in which a someone abstaining from drugs or alcohol manifests euphoria, overconfidence, and a false sense of wellbeing, therefore making them more vulnerable to relapse. However, there has been very little scientific research done on the pink cloud. On today’s episode, Annie Grace explores what happens to the brain and the body when you stop drinking alcohol and where that euphoric feeling might come from.
    Hi. Super exciting news. So The Alcohol Experiment book is being released. Actually it got released just a few days ago with the expanded edition. What does expanded edition mean? It means that every single day throughout the book there are deep reflective journal entries that have been added with space to write which is so cool and so exciting. So you really make it your own. And, the reason I did this is because I truly believe that the deepest wisdom you will access throughout the 30 days of The Alcohol Experiment comes from within you. You know more about what’s best for you than anybody else in the entire world. And I know sometimes that can be hard to believe but when you really access your own wisdom it is so profound.
