A reader asks, “After about five days of being alcohol-free, my spirits are lifted and I feel more alive and more happy … I want to have a fun night celebrating with my new state of mind, which is that I don't feel controlled by alcohol. Afterwards, I return to daily drinking, usually for two weeks or so, until I'm back to feeling lifeless, purposeless, sad, and tired. It's a common pattern. Is this common for anyone else?” Listen as Annie Grace explains how repetitive thought patterns impact the physical structure of the brain, shares the two main reasons people give for drinking, and offers three different tactics for breaking this behavior cycle.
