Special Episode: A Mindful Holiday Season
The Champagne Problems crew discusses the many holiday scenarios that involve drinking and how to bring more awareness to each situation to create a healthier holiday season.
This conversation is so vital. I am so grateful to finally have this topic on the table. I have battled with my relationship with alcohol my entire life. Finally, in my 50’s, I am “secure” enough in my own skin to say “I don’t drink.” How sad is that? I tied my value, and ability to be liked, with alcohol…even within my own family!!! Thank you for your work in this specific area! Bravo!
Very entertaining, helpful and insightful
Thanks for doing this guys and girls. Really helpful to a lot of people.
I love the content and discussions in Champagne Problems. I have decided to live an alcohol free lifestyle and this is a great support with relative information. I love that it comes from a mental health perspective. Thank you for starting it!
