Don’t wait until your drinking becomes a full-blown addiction. If you’re concerned about your alcohol consumption, reach out for help today.

A Sobriety Coach can help you if these thoughts have been going through your mind lately:

  • You’re not sure if you have a problem with alcohol, but you’re worried that you might be drinking too much.
  • You’re concerned about the impact your drinking is having on your health, relationships, and career.
  • You feel guilty or ashamed about your drinking, and you’re not sure who to talk to.
  • You want to cut down or quit drinking, but you don’t know how.
  • You feel like you’re missing out on social events if you don’t drink.
  • You struggle to control your drinking in certain situations, such as when you’re stressed or bored.
  • You feel like you’re the only one struggling with this issue.
  • You’re wondering if you have an alcohol use disorder, but you’re not sure.

If you find yourself drinking more than you intend, but not enough to be considered an alcoholic, you may be engaging in gray area drinking. This pattern of drinking can be just as harmful as full-blown addiction, leading to a range of physical, mental, and social problems. And most likely, that’s why you’re here. Please know that you are safe and welcome here.

At Living Lively and Free, Gray Area Drinking Coach, Julie Lively, empowers you to take back the control in your life and break free from cycles that you know hurt your well-being and negatively impact your goals.

Understanding Gray Area Drinking

Gray area drinking falls somewhere between social drinking and alcohol dependence. It is characterized by a pattern of drinking that exceeds recommended guidelines but does not meet the criteria for alcohol use disorder. People who engage in gray area drinking may experience negative consequences such as:

  • Hangovers
  • Fatigue
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Guilt over breaking promises
  • Forgetfulness
  • Weight gain and nutrition deficiencies
  • Relationship problems
  • Work or school issues

Common Reasons Julie’s Clients Have Worked with a Gray Area Drinking Coach

  • Feeling out of control of your drinking (it’s not just one more glass of wine, it’s usually the entire bottle)
  • Worrying about the impact of your drinking on your health, relationships, and career (one more “screw up” and you’re not sure what will happen… the stress compounds)
  • Feeling guilty or ashamed about your drinking (your family gives you “the look” when you come home with alcohol))
  • Trying to hide your drinking from others
  • Feeling like you are missing out on life because of your drinking (when you are able to stop, it feels like no one wants to be around you)
