    Good for you, @RubyRed427. I am right there with you in feeling “enough is enough”!

    You get much of the credit for my own journey since you started the Less Alcohol thread in January 2018. I clearly remember when you said it was your 49th birthday. Next year when you report on your 52nd it will be so great to hear about the sober celebration and my intention is to be completely able to relate to that!

    I was surprised by Kate’s real involvement too because I once invested in a “course” that really was just nicely packaged content with no interaction with anyone—certainly not the famous “instructor.” When we have issues or questions, Kate gets back to us quickly. Plus we interact with each other constantly. I find myself thinking things like, “My Australian friends are already waking up to day 14.”

    I watched a documentary called Driven to Drink on 60 Minutes Australia the other night reporting that the consumption of alcohol by women is increasing to dangerous levels & talked about the reasons for that. What I found most interesting was that the paid advertisements were selling alcohol.

    In that vein, I saw a TEDx talk that noted the alcohol industry targets girls with “skinny “ fruity drinks with vodka or rum, and when they hit college boys are bingeing on beer but girls are already on to the hard stuff. I realize it’s all alcohol but 5% vs 80 proof is significant. Scary.
