Your Brain On... Dry January Your Brain On

    • Science

What happens to your brain when you stop drinking? Is doing Dry January the best way to quit?
In this second preview episode of Your Brain On, we discuss the neuroscience and psychology of:
• How alcohol affects your brain, at a cellular level
• Why a gradual detoxification might be better than the hard stop encouraged by Dry January
• The fascinating history of alcohol’s role in culture, from ancient civilizations to the Prohibition era
We also speak to Dr. Howard Rankin, an incredible psychologist who has done remarkable work in the realm of addiction and behavior.
Dr. Rankin talks to us about the challenges of overcoming alcohol dependence, the differences between avoiding and confronting temptations, and the importance of focusing on progress over perfection.
‘Your Brain On’ is a brand new podcast from hosts Ayesha and Dean Sherzai.
