Solving Problems with Alcohol the Right Way

Alcohol is not the answer.

Alcohol: Burden or Bonus?

Andy Core is an expert in Work-Life Balance, Wellbeing, and Peak Human Performance.

Like anything else, too much of something may be a bad thing. Drinking alcohol isn’t, in itself, bad, but if it becomes a priority rather than a bonus, you may have an issue.

My advice is to keep your drinking habit in check. Like everything else, this takes conscious reflection. If your drinking causes problems in your life or those around you, then you have a problem.

If you’re honest with your reflection and refuse to make excuses, then you should be able to decide your plan of action. When do you drink the most? Where are you when you make mistakes that are causing problems? If your answer is with a certain person, at a certain place or when you’re in a certain mindset, then the logical thing to do is figure out what other actions you can do to to offset this habit.

In other words if you drink when you’re depressed or insecure, decide to go exercise instead of having a beer. If you drink when you hang out with a certain person, then be intentional with other relationships. If you get into trouble when you go to a certain bar, avoid that bar.

Obviously, this is hard to do. You drink because it’s social, fun and relaxing. The problem is relying on drinking to be social, fun and relaxed. If you don’t have these qualities in life without alcohol, then something about your life needs to change. Focus on other ways to bring these factors, and bring alcohol into the bonus category rather than the focus.
