What if, by quitting or reducing your alcohol intake, you could see an improvement in your relationships, your health, your productivity, and even your appearance?
Our guest today is entrepreneur, journalist, and author James Swanwick. In 2010, James had his very last drink. As a result, his life improved dramatically. Now, he helps others take control of their drinking through his 30-Day Challenge and Project 90 programs. In his podcast, Alcohol-Free Lifestyle, and his book, The 30-Day No Alcohol Challenge: Your Simple Guide To Easily Reduce Or Quit Alcohol, James teaches casual drinkers how to change their relationship with alcohol.
Join us as James shares practical tips on how to reduce your desire for alcohol, how to socialize without drinking, and the myriad benefits of being alcohol-free!
“Now, in 2022, they did a study of 35,000 middle-aged Brits, and what they found was that one seemingly innocent glass of alcohol per night – seven standard drinks a week – was enough to cause some gray and white degeneration in the brain. So, gray and white matter in the brain. The bumper sticker for that is – one drink a night is enough to cause some level of brain damage. Now, how much brain damage? That depends on genetics, depends on how many years or decades you’ve been drinking before that. But in 2022, the latest neuroscience, 35,000, one drink a night is enough to cause gray and white matter damage in the brain. That should be a wake-up call to all of us.” – James Swanwick
