This program isn’t about quitting. It’s about questioning the drink and choosing what’s best for you as we apply proven methods based on neuroscience.
You’ve tried the drinking games like “I won’t drink during the week”, or the “I’ll only have one, maybe two”, but end up having more. You’re tired of your false promises to yourself.
The embarrassment and constant disappointment in yourself.
You’re a grown adult, so why is this so hard to figure out?!
It’s not your fault.
The problem is you’ve never been taught or shown how to sit with your emotions or how to handle uncomfortable situations. As a society, we’ve normalized drinking, but yet if we overdo it, we ‘must’ have a serious problem. That is a lie.
Let me show you the truth and how in just 30 days, we can fix this endless cycle of shame-guilt disappointment. You deserve to feel authentic and be the person you know you’re capable of being.
Gain massive clarity on why you’re self-sabotaging.
Have more energy so you can accomplish more in your business and at home.
Gain confidence in yourself to be the person you know you’re capable of becoming.
Improve your relationships before you’re forced into a costly breakup.
Be the role model you’re desiring to be for your kids and colleagues. They need you.
Love the person in the mirror.
Look and feel AMAZING.
Meet your coach, Kari!
Hi! I’m Kari Schwear, a former gray area drinker. I work with results-driven leaders that are willing to Question the Drink and discover a better relationship with alcohol, and with themselves.
I founded GrayTonic and created Question the Drink & the “QtD for 30” program after my own experience as a former gray area drinker left me frustrated and confused with traditional programs.
I designed this breakthrough path for those in the gray area between drinking socially and severely abusing alcohol who would benefit from discovery when they don’t need recovery.
As a former gray area drinker, I tried for years to moderate or cut back on my drinking. I played all the games of false promises that ultimately resulted in feeling worse about myself! I had ZERO self confidence!
Not knowing what direction to go, I tried AA for several months. While the program provided me with some tools, it wasn’t a good fit. I wasn’t an alcoholic.
Traditional programs are designed for those needing recovery. For gray area drinkers, it’s not recovery we need, but DISCOVERY. It took me years to figure this out on my own! That’s why I needed to create something unique and different for you to accomplish in just 30 days.
QtD for 30 is about discovering why you drink, understanding habit loops, and creating new ways of thinking. It’s about gaining confidence in yourself and living an authentic life.
Discover for yourself why this program has been so successful!
Tell me if this sounds like you...
You want control over alcohol. No more love/hate relationship.
You’re afraid your life will be boring if you don’t drink or that you’ll have no social life. You want to be still active and have fun!
You want to quiet the inner-mind chatter and self-negative talk. It’s exhausting to listen to!
You’ve done trying to cut back on your own, or worse, lying to yourself.
You’re tired of feeling like an imposter or pretending to have your act together. The act of this alone is tiring to keep up with day in and day out.
You desire to find a balance of having a drink from time to time, without giving it up forever. “Is it possible?”, you wonder.
We got your covered!
We help our clients with those same struggles every single day.
And if you’re like any of them, you’ve probably felt this way too, or had beliefs that just weren’t true.
I just need more willpower or motivation!!
You don’t need willpower – you need mind power! This isn’t about white-knuckling it or counting days!
In QtD for 30, you will learn WHY you desire a drink and how you’ve “trained” yourself to want it. You will learn how to unlearn that desire by applying the right tools based on neuroscience.
I can’t have fun or socialize without drinking.
This is the #1 reason why most people stay stuck in the gray area. They are worried about missing out on “fun”. In this course, you will know how to occupy your time while enjoying yourself and not missing a thing (except the hangovers, slip of the tongue, setting a bad example for your kids, driving intoxicated, and so on)
It’s not about what you’re giving up – it’s about what you’re GAINING!
If I’m drinking too much, I must be an alcoholic.
This is what society and recovery programs have implied. This is NOT true. Not everyone that drinks too much from time to time is an alcoholic.
About 50% of the population that consumes alcohol may be in the gray area. This includes binge drinkers and the nightly “just a few glasses of wine” drinkers, and everything in between.

I believe that if I’m in a place of questioning something, it’s worth taking a good look at it. Kari’s program, Question the Drink for 30, allowed me to do just that, in a safe, supportive space. Taking an objective look at drinking habits and having the support to make my own decision – what did I want more, to enjoy a drink, or more, or to be clear-minded – was what I needed to turn this question around safely in my mind and come to my own conclusion.
I come from a family of alcohol users & it’s seemingly everywhere in our society today. Going through the QTD coursework over the span of a month allowed me to make the decisions that were best for me and to create fresh habits, which involved abstaining from drinking and supporting my health and my greater wellbeing. I’ve found greater confidence and peace in declining the offer to drink in social situations where it would have felt strange to say no in the past.
I highly recommend Kari and the work she has put into this program, as well as the resources she provides! I’ve got a renewed vibrancy for life and don’t feel awkward not drinking anymore! Thank you, Kari!!

This is for you if…
✅ You want to cut back, take a break, or quit drinking altogether.
✅ You consider yourself a gray area drinker – the space between socially drinking and severely abusing alcohol.
✅ You’re already alcohol-free but still strongly desiring a drink from time to time and wondering why.
✅ You’ve tried this on your own many times, but don’t know why you can’t seem to get it under control.
✅ You’ve made a pact with yourself only to drink on the weekends, but realize that’s just false promises.
✅ You want an easy and straightforward process to understand your relationship with alcohol.
This is NOT for you if…
⚠️ You’re severely abusing alcohol or identify as an alcoholic or addict.
⚠️ You’re looking for a magic bullet.
⚠️ You’re not willing to do the work needed or think you can’t do it.
“I didn’t identify as someone with a rock bottom addiction but knew my alcohol use was holding me back from being my best self. I just didn’t know there was something for the sober curious called Gray Area Drinking. That is until I found Kari.
What started off as a discovery call about Questioning the Drink, turned into a life-changing event. I decided to work with Kari as my coach to change my views on alcohol use. Turns out, she helped me ask better questions about myself and in turn, was able to have a huge mindset change. Once you see the possibilities you can’t turn a blind eye to the past. Kari finds a way to pull the Why out of you and get clarity on what is most important in your life.
I highly recommend working with Kari!”
