The “Un-Wined” Circle is a group for women who are beginning to question their relationship with alcohol. In the wine culture of today, many women find themselves drinking more frequently. What starts as a glass of wine with dinner, turns into a glass while cooking dinner and with dinner, and often transitions to one cooking dinner, eating dinner and another after the kids go to bed. And it tends to happen over time, so it is difficult to notice that your drinking has evolved to a few glasses several times a week. It has become the way you relax.
But maybe you notice that on occasion you are finishing a whole bottle by yourself or can drink a few glasses of wine and it has little effect of you. Or you intend to just have a glass of wine at book club, but over-indulge and have to Uber home. Or perhaps you are having hangovers after a couple of glasses of wine and that never used to happen. You wonder if this is normal and start to question if alcohol is really adding any value to your life. Nothing bad has happened. You go to work, have no DUIs, and no health issues related to alcohol. But you also have a hard time relaxing without it. It has become a habit and a coping skill.
If this sounds familiar, then the “Un-Wined” group is for you! It is a place to explore your relationship with alcohol, examine what sobriety might feel like in your life, and to develop coping skills that don’t involve substances. The group is confidential and is a wonderful source of support from other women who are also questioning their alcohol use. Come and “Un-Wined” with us!
