Let’s talk about what happens to your body when you drink alcohol and what happens when you stop drinking after consuming it on a regular basis.
I asked Gillian Tietz, the Sober Scientist and host of the Sober Powered Podcast, to come on the podcast to talk about the Science and Psychology of Addiction.
In today’s episode, Gill and I discuss
Why alcohol slows down our brain activity How alcohol affects our sleep and why you wake up at 3am after drinking The connection between alcohol and anxiety Why alcohol makes it hard to lose weight What happens to your body physically during withdrawal from alcohol The benefits your body gets from taking a break from drinking Plus...
Rage gardening + Tomb Raider Gill’s story and her road to recovery Why you need to build a ‘drama free bubble’ in early sobriety How we felt physically and emotionally when we stopped drinking
