What I’ve found is that many high performers are using alcohol as a coping mechanism. They’re not an alcoholic, but more than a social drinker. Without knowing what avenues to take, they remain quiet in fear of embarrassment.
You’re successful in a lot of ways, so why is this so hard?
Maybe you feel like an imposter, or that you’re just pretending to have it all together.
Perhaps you’ve tried moderation with some success, but it doesn’t last that long.
This becomes frustrating.
