Why do people drink alcohol? To celebrate? To escape reality? Or to feel something else? Why do we turn to alcohol as a means to destress? And have you ever noticed you feel confident when you're drunk?
When you drink, the dopamine hit from alcohol becomes addictive, and the brain relies on it to feel good, leading to a cycle of dependence. In short, you feel good when you're drunk.
However, it is essential to note that alcohol only provides temporary confidence. It impairs decision-making and can have adverse effects on the brain and body.
But without alcohol, how can we gain confidence without relying on it? How can one improve self-acceptance and mindset?
