I’d say less as I tend to drink at home during the weekend (when I get to be the chef too) - pre-COVID would be out for lunches /dinner with 🍷🍾🍸🥃🍺🍹

I realized sometimes I actually wanted a drink, but other times I was having one as a signal that it’s time to to relax and pay attention to my SO instead of my phone. Now I try to pay more attention to what I really want. if I just want to relax, I try to have the “cocktail experience” without the alcohol. I make a nonalcoholic drink and have it in the same spot I would be for a cocktail, leave my phone in another room, turn on a record, etc.

Much, much less with no happy hours and no travel. Wasn’t really intentional at first but now I drink maybe 2-5 drinks a week over 1-2 days and usually take 2 weeks off every month or so. Pre-covid was probably too high of a number drinking 4-5 x per week.

Some advice would be to ask why you are drinking more. Some other advice would be to grow older where the cost of the hangover after a couple drinks outweighs the benefits. 😆

D2, i agree it feels great not drinking. Especially waking up in the AM with no headaches.

Yes, a lot more. Haven't had an appetite for dinner most days, and a whiskey or two clears that right up.

For a while I would have a drink with lunch then never stop, after a few months this was happening on a daily basis and I would be be pretty "happy" by 5-6pm when it was time to finish up the day. Now I will not have anything until it's time to finish up. However I wouldn't get as drunk at the end of the day as I would be when I was on-site, however I wouldn't be on-site more than once every month so all in all I didn't drink more wfh than what I would when being on site just spread it out more over the day.

Would love some advice: I have a younger brother (17) who did his most influential years of high school remote.

What should we do to position him for success? Is there anything we can do? We’re in the US already and his counselors have no guidance…
