You see a sparkling glass of red wine that your host has graciously provided for each guest at the progressive dinner table filled with an incredible assortment of delectable dishes. She did this because the main course entree theme is, of course, beef. "How thoughtful." you genuinely consider. But, what is she thinking? She knows you have a history of alcohol challenges. All of a sudden you feel like the elephant in the room as your heart pounds and your head ponders the question, "Should you drink wine anyway?" The health benefits just might do you some good. Besides, what's one drink?
The health factors of red wine, in particular are actually quite beneficial to the human body. Filled with antioxidants, red wines have the power to enhance health and well being when consumed in extremely small amounts. For a man, approximately 2 four-ounce glasses of red wine a day provide healthful benefits. For women, only 1 four-ounce glass of red wine will suffice. Anything over that become overkill and an invitation to detriment.
Social scenes inclusive of alcohol are as abundant as the hours are in a day. If you know you are vulnerable to the ill effects of alcohol, keeping self-care and/or abstinence in the forefront would be wise. If you know someone who is vulnerable to the ill effects of alcohol in any social arena where alcohol will be served, compassionately see that non-alcoholic provisions are available.
Whether or not health benefits of wine come into play is not a primary concern for those who desire to take control of alcohol consumption. Fabulous antioxidants are hugely offered in thousands of other food and drink options, which will not compromise mental and physical health factors.
Alcohol is not what makes a personal special. Alcohol doesn't make you pretty, handsome, smart, funny or wise. That party you are at right now will be a success because you are there, not because you drink red wine. Go ahead and compliment the host for inviting you to such a fabulous party as you confidently hold your sparkling glass of your favorite non-alcoholic beverage. Show them your stuff. You were invited to that party because of who you were created to be.
Should you drink wine? Probably not. Should you live life to the fullest with an alcohol-free advantage? Absolutely! Don't waste another moment doubting. Get your best life on today and wear it well!
