Dry January with William Porter: Alcohol Explained

Season 3, Episode 95,   Jan 09, 2023, 08:27 AM

In this episode we catch up with friend of the podcast William Porter, the author of Alcohol Explained!

William talks us through what happens to your body and brain when you decide to remove alcohol... And the reasons why it doesn't feel very good at first. He talks us through the science (both physiological and psychological) to give us an understanding of why we feel rubbish at first, but then also talks to us about how you start to feel better - and why.

If you're doing Dry January and feeling like you might want to pack it in... This episode is absolutely for you! If you've already started on your sobriety adventure, this chat is a great reminder about the important reasons for staying on track.
